What I learned after using pihole for a week

In all fairness, it has been more than a week, but due to messing around with logging and accidentally clearing it a few times (whoops!), I didn't have a week worth of data until yesterday. For the past week, I've been tinkering a bit with Pi-hole, including working with stuff there's no official guides for. There's quite a few things I noticed while messing around with Pi-hole, so I figured I'd write a post about it.

Setting up SSL with pihole, without a FQDN

Introduction This post aims to present an alternative way to generate SSL certificates for your pihole web interface. This is specifically targeted at people without a FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name), regardless of whether pihole is hosted locally or on a VPS. Note that this has only tested on a locally hosted pihole instance, running on a Raspberry Pi 3B+. As usual, apply common sense before running commands from strangers on the internet - just because it worked on my system, doesn't necessarily mean it'll work in general.
