My.Openhab Setup Errors

I setup my.openhab this evening.

I am running openhab on my raspberry pi which has java version “1.8.0_65” and Java™ SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_65-b17)

I installed to the openHAB add ons directory using apt-get.

I added my UUID and secret to my online account at

I updated security:option=EXTERNAL, security:netmask= in openhab.cfg and added my user in users.cfg

Locally I can still get to my openHab instance but when going to I get an error ‘openHAB is offline’ and when I try to connect to it remotely using my iPhone App with and my username and password I get a 'Request Failed Internal Server Error (500)

Any help would be appreciated.
