Myopenhab not loading


I have openhab 1.8.3 running on Raspberry Pi 2

I have installed addon myopenhab, created the persist file and updated java to the latest

java version "1.8.0"
Java™ SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0-b132)
Java HotSpot™ Client VM (build 25.0-b70, mixed mode)

However I still cannot get my openhab to work. In the openhab.log I only see the below which relates to myopenhab and nothing more.
2016-12-20 23:25:57.617 [INFO ] [c.internal.ModelRepositoryImpl] - Loading model 'myopenhab.persist'

Any pointers to what I should do or enable to troubleshoot please?


Although you said you did update, but this doesn’t look like the latest java version. So please update (again) according to the solution mentioned here:

… and

remove your myopenhab.persist file, it is no longer used.
Instead you need to “expose” (openhabcloud:expose=) your items you want to have showing up in the cloud:


I’m getting a non authorized error now. Where should the uuid and secret be set up please?
2016-12-26 05:00:18.331 [ERROR] [.myopenhab.internal.MyOHClient] - Socket.IO error: not authorized

Mine are set in /usr/share/openhab/webapps/static and correctly configured in

In your openhab cloud account. Go to, login and add your UUID and SECRET to your account.

Edit: If you are not sure what you have to do, read the manual:

The documentation is for v2. I’m still using openhab v1.8.3

(but the place where you need to fill in UUID and SECRET is the same in openHAB1 and openHAB2)
