I just installed unbound on AX-88U but it will not start.
I am new to unbound.
I am already running Diversion and Skynet on the router without any issues.

RT-AX88U? Which firmware version, specifically?

Is this a new router? How did you set it up? How did you set up the USB drive for use with amtm?

Is amtm fully updated? Are all the scripts updated? Is Entware fully updated?

If you manually restart dnsmasq
Code:
service restart_dnsmasq
does unbound now start correctly?

If not you should be able to start unbound in debugging mode..

First ensure all unbound instances are terminated,

Code:
killall unbound
then you should be able to request the start of unbound in debug mode..via the unbound_manager menu, then look for errors....
Code:
e  = Exit Script [?]

A:Option ==> debug

    'unbound.conf'

port: 53535                                 # v1.08 If 53, requires 'port=0' in '/etc/dnsmasq.conf' to 'disable' dnsmasq to answer queries direct from LAN clients
interface: [email protected]                  # v1.01 As per @dave14305 minimal config; Will be overwritten by $(nvram get lan_ipaddr_rt) if dnsmasq 'disabled'

The firmware is 386_7. The problem has been resolved. I did a hard reboot of the router and now ubound is reported as running. However I don't know why i am getting this: " Warning WAN: Use local caching DNS server as system resolver=YES". Is the setting to be changed to NO? Many thanks for responding to my request for help.

Yes, anytime you change or add a major script such as Unbound, you need to do at least one reboot of the network even if things seem to be working properly already. Even if just to test that they will continue to do so afterward too.

With the warning message you're getting, it may be what you want from Unbound. Have you read/searched the main thread?

This may be of help too.
