Help i've broken it

Hey guys,

For some reason myopenhab went offline and i tried everything to get it back online including this line:

sudo openhab-cli clean-cache

Now I’ve lost all of my bindings that i installed via Paper Ui, and i can’t update or reinstall openhab.

is there a fix for this? or do i need to do a fresh install of openhabian?

Many thanks

You mean the cloud service

You have given us no information about what version , how you installed openhabian, what OS, Java version, etc.
How do you expect helpful answers without providing the needed information?

Thanks Bruce,

Apologies for my vagueness

I’m using openhabian on a rpi3, and yes it was, Java version 1.8.0_152.

I’ve lost Paper Ui and all of my bindings that i have downloaded with it.

I think there are currently issues with openHABian related to Zulu Java. Searching the forum should reveal a workaround/


I guess you do not have a backup?

What brings the following command in karaf console:

feature:list|grep Package

thought i had a clean backup on my pc…

Ok, the expert package is started: OK And this normally also installs:

  • Paper UI for system administration, including item access
  • Classic UI as the well-known web UI from openHAB 1.x
  • Basic UI as the new modern web UI for mobile devices
  • HABPanel as a dashboard UI for (e.g. wall-mounted) tablets
  • HABmin as a powerful administration console, specifically suited for Z-Wave setups
  • Interactive REST API that easily allows exploring the REST features through a documented UI
  • all available transformations as they used to be part of the core 1.x runtime

What brings a:

bundle:list|grep UI
150 x Active   x  80 x 0.10.0.oh240           x Eclipse SmartHome UI
151 x Active   x  80 x 0.10.0.oh240           x Eclipse SmartHome UI Icons
185 x Active   x  80 x 2.4.0                  x openHAB Dashboard UI

open in web-browser localhost:8080 and select a Package.


Paper UI isn’t there?

I selected Node-red and it works


i selected a package - Node Red

I only know the following packages:

  • simple
  • standard
  • expert
  • demo

see here:


Were does node-red comes from?
