Broke my openhab instalation

Hi, today I broke my openhab instalation. I was trying to resolver a zigbee problem, i touch some thing a now nothing works. I have no logs only and empty frontail works.
I have openhab 3.0.1 runing in and openhabian instalation in a raspberry 3b+ in a hard drive.
The thing I know is what I do:

sudo openhab-cli reset-ownership
sudo openhab-cli stop
sudo openhab-cli clean-cache //ask me to stop the service
sudo systemctl stop openhab.service
sudo openhab-cli clean-cache
sudo systemctl start openhab.service

From here nothing works.
At some point sytemctl warms me:

arning: The unit file, source configuration file or drop-ins of openhab.service changed on disk. Run 'systemctl daemon-reload' to reload units.
sudo systemctl daemon-reload

I can accese the openhab-cli, openhabian-config, i can see frontail. But nothing happend.
Also in:

sudo systemctl status openhab.service

But again nothing happend.

As you have cleaned the cache, the first start of OH will take longer as usual as the cache needs to be rebuilt. So tray again a bit later and if things are not working as expected, shutdown OH again and restart it. Check the logfile for errors.

I allready wait several hours, and reboot the system several times, but nothing happend, and I mean nothing

Can you log into the console? Is anything logged there?

Yesterday I could, today I can’t. The Logs are empty.

I will learn from from my mistakes and back full disk or something for the next time.

That is always a good strategy. But backup is only one hallf of the process, don’t forget to test the restore part as well so you know what steps need to be done for a full recovery :+1:

If you know which changes you have done, starting from the last known working configuration, you might still be able to rollback those changes to get the system up and running again.
If you make use of textual configurations, you can take the relevant files off of the system before building it from scratch.
