Now that you have Pi-hole and Portainer setup within Docker (perhaps on a Raspberry Pi (affiliate link)?) and you notice that an update is available for Pi-hole, you may be wondering, “How do I update Pi-hole”? Sure, you can pull a new image and restart it via the command line. However, you have a nice graphical interface setup and you may enjoy looking at it rather than a console window (sacrilege for the command line folks, I know).
Pi-hole is open source software which provides ad blocking (and more) for your entire home network. It does this by blocking known ad serving domains. Pi-hole even has the ability to block network requests to malicious domains if the domain name is contained in one of the block lists. The high level statistics compiled by Pi-hole provides a much greater insight to what is going on in your home network.
