Can't interface with pihole via network OR physically?

Honestly, Since I can still access Gravity, I think I'm just going to back it up and re-install. This poor pi routinely racks up over 100 days of uptime. Best use of a pi ever.

Before you click off immediately, Try hearing me out. Obviously I've been all over the internet trying to find a solution to this, But I seam to having the opposite of everyone else.

Started my night off with deciding I should update my PiHole server, no problem right? SSH into the thing and can't remember my password. So I just grabbed an HDMI cable to reset it... But for the life of me can't figure out why I can't get to the terminal?? It's like it's getting stuck booting, But the PiHole API still works just fine.(See pics). I can get into the web interface just fine, But why in gods name can't I get into the physical terminal? I've tried rebooting it with and without my PADD display, Did the same thing. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Try pressing Ctrl+Alt+F2 (F3, F4, ...) to switch to a different terminal. The first one is probably set to show log output.

 

However that's not going to help if you forgot your password. You'll still need to sign in.

Neat that i'm on a different screen, But still not helpful when I can't change the password. Since when did raspbian stop booting to a command line? I'm confident i've never changed this either, Still default pi & raspberry
