I installed OpenHAB 2.5.12 as a docker on Debian 11 host. I can connect to it with a browser at port 8080 from my windows laptop. So it started.
But it’s telling me to wait several minutes, right after I clicked on the advanced installation. And this has been so for about a day.
I restarted the docker but that doesn’t help.
I would like to empty the cache as I have read this might fix the issue. But where is the cache in the docker system? There is no directory ‘/var/lib/openhab2/cache’ inside the docker, nor is it on the host system. I did find this directory:
‘/opt/openhab/userdata/cache/org.eclipse.osgi’ with lots of files in it. Not sure if this is THE cache? I changed the name of the directory to org.eclipse.osgi_BACKUP and restarted the docker. No new cache-directory was made and the web inteface still tells me to wait a few minutes.
I also would also like to know for sure that the docker has access to the internet. But I don’t know how, since ping is not working in the docker. How best to check this?
