Installation of OpenHAB

Hi there!

I am new to openHAB, tried before Homegenie and Domoticz and decieded to try openHAB.
I am using a Raspi2 with Z-Wave GPIO Card.

I have downloaded Raspi-Wheezy and installed it.
Next step was installing openHAB as explained here:


After that i tried to access openHAB via Browser by typing in:

and getting to following error:

After searching the wiki and install-instructions i found no real solutuion at all.
Searched via goggle, i found that i have to install the demo-setup but don´t really found
where to extract it.

Tried first to extract it to opt/openhab, after that to etc/openhab…not working,
still the same error.

Any ideas???..pls help.


You have to
a) provide a Sitemap namend “default.sitemap” OR
b) you can name your sitemap as you want and must use the URL:

When I sudo apt-cache search openhab, I don’t see a package for the demo files. Was there never such a thing?

Thx for your fast reply, demo working now!

No there was never a package for the demo configuration. I thought about it (not to much) and found no satisfying solution.
