I'm using openwrt version 23.05, just installed Adguard Home but cannot manage to run it. Any ideas?

That doesn't look like any official packaging ?

        "model": "Redmi AX3000",
        "board_name": "redmi,ax3000",
        "rootfs_type": "squashfs",

You might need help from people with specific/specialized knowledge about the firmware you are using, so it is possible that advice you get here may not be useful.

If you believe that this specific issue is common to generic/official OpenWrt and/or the maintainers of your build have indicated as such, please feel free to clarify.
