Just reinstalled OH1 (on windows 10) and so far everything is running smooth.
I like the ‘getting started’ description on the OH website : http://www.openhab.org/getting-started/index.html
However, there were two (minor) problems I had to solve, to make everything running.
This is a suggestion to perhaps include these in the description, so no one has to think this over again.
For the installation of the OH designer, I was unable to connect to the configuration folder. In fact I had replaced the file “openhab_default.cfg” with “openhab.cfg” and apparently the designer tests the presence of the original one. A little word about this could be helpful
To connect to the website it was not clear to me I literally had to include the hostname. Perhaps an example like “http://localhost:8080/openhab.app?sitemap=demo” could also be helpful.
