Frontail on Dietpi with Openhab2.5

  • Platform information:

    • Hardware: RPi 4 4GB
    • OS: DietPi (latest version)
    • Java Runtime Environment: ???
    • openHAB version: 2.5
  • Issue of the topic: please be detailed explaining your issue
    I installed frontail on my Dietpi Pi4 to log openhab over my browser at work. I setup frontail with help of this board [SOLVED] Logview on ubuntu and some changes I entered in the service-file. When I start the service my Pi say it runs but when I try to open the browser there is no connection (page not found). When I start frointail manualy without the servicefile it works. Where is my error?

  • Please post configurations (if applicable):

#!/bin/sh -


ExecStart=/usr/local/bin/frontail --ui-highlight -t dark /opt/openhab2/userdata/logs/openhab.log /opt/openhab2/userdata/logs/events.log


systemctl status frontail.service

I think it might be worth reporting this on the DietPi forum, as I’ve just seen this same behaviour on an ODroid C2 and C4.

However, only running 1 log file in the service file, it will work perfectly.

Likewise, running the full command from a prompt works perfectly.

I’ve also just fired up Ubuntu 20 on a C4 and the service file you have above works perfectly.
