How to restart the first time setup again?

  • Platform information:
    • Hardware: CPUArchitecture/RAM/storage --> works on an Synology
    • OS: what OS is used and which version --> Synology OS

My issue is that i skip the first time setup Menu to choose a installation . How can i start this menu again?
At the moment on the installationpage every time the same text:"Please stand by while UIs are being installed. This can take several minutes." and nothing happens.

Could you help me?

Excuse my English.


There should be a services folder with a addons.cfg file that you can specify expert and then define what you want installed in the rest of the file.

# The installation package of this openHAB instance
# Note: This is only regarded at the VERY FIRST START of openHAB Note: If you want to specify your add-ons yourself through entries below, set the package to "minimal" as otherwise your definition might be in conflict with what the installation package defines.
# Optional. If not set, the dashboard (https://<yourserver>:8080/) will ask you to choose a package.
# Valid options:
#   - minimal  : Installation only with dashboard, but no UIs or other add-ons. Use this for custom setups.
#   - simple   : Setup for using openHAB purely through UIs - you need to expect MANY constraints in functionality!
#   - standard : Default setup for normal users, best for textual setup
#   - expert   : Setup for expert users, especially for people migrating from openHAB 1.x
# See for a detailed explanation of these packages.
package = expert

Yeah, great . That’s it. It works.

Thanks a lot!
