Looking to update from 6.4.1 to 6.5.0, but prior to doing so, i get this error on the update assistant.


Checking for extra parameters on emhttp
Issue Found: emhttp command in /boot/config/go has extra parameters passed to it. Currently emhttp does not accept any extra paramters. These should be removed

Thank you Squidy. For whatever reason i was under the impression that Go was a folder. Those changes were made back when pihole required a port change.


Appreciate the help.
