How to install Pi-hole on kubernetes.
The ad-blocker for your network. Change the DNS on your router to ip of your Kubernetes cluster. You can also make the DNS change on your computer – if you not like to change the DNS for all devices on your router.
Not all devices support DNS change like mobile phones or smart home devices.
kubectl create ns pihole
helm install pihole mojo2600/pihole -f pihole.yaml --namespace pihole
Here you have the pihole.yaml file for the installation.
