Both OpenHab UI instances not working after upgrade

Hi everyone,

I had both OpenHab instances sudo apt-get upgrade and at this point

Configuration file ‘/etc/openhab/services/runtime.cfg’
==> Modified (by you or by a script) since installation.
==> Package distributor has shipped an updated version.
What would you like to do about it ? Your options are:
Y or I : install the package maintainer’s version
N or O : keep your currently-installed version
D : show the differences between the versions
Z : start a shell to examine the situation
The default action is to keep your current version.
*** runtime.cfg (Y/I/N/O/D/Z) [default=N] ? Y
Installing new version of config file /etc/openhab/services/runtime.cfg …
Installing new version of config file /var/lib/openhab/etc/log4j2.xml …

at first I choosed N and at the second Y. Both UI’s are not working any more, any advise?


This was an upgrade from what verison to what version? If you were not already running an OH 4, there is a ton of stuff you need to do to upgrade to OH 4, not least of which is upgrading your Java to Java 17. Please see the announcement post about the release of OH 4 and pay particular attention to the breaking changes.

Hey Rich,
I feel like we are talking more than I talk to my wife :slight_smile:
Sure, those were both 3.4.3 OpenHab versions, I already made a fresh installation for the one instance, but the second one is on a remote location.
I guess July was the month of the problems… I never made it to my home instance and I had to install everything from the very beginning, loosing 4 years logs…
Thanks anyway.
