Pi-hole 5: Empty dashboard fix

Pi-hole 5 got released. Cool! After upgrading my Pi-hole 4 to Pi-hole 5, my admin panel dashboard didn’t work anymore – everything was just a blank, white page when I clicked on the dashboard/home page.

sudo /etc/init.d/php7.4-fpm restart

Make sure to restart your php-fpm after installing the extension(s).
Everything worked after I did that:
