I really like the premise of OpenHAB but I am starting to wonder if it is viable yet. I have been beating by head against my desk for a week and I haven’t even seen a UI yet. I’m already running a Synology DS716+ and have learned a lot. It made since to add OpenHAB to the Synology but I’m not having any luck. Here is where I am at so far:
I finally found the 1.5.0-001 package in the syno community packages. Someone might want to rename it. The package name comes up as “null” so you can’t find it alphabetically.
I tried to install 1.5 from the package center but I get an error about “homes” not being active when they actually are. I read that this was a known issue but that it was later fixed.
Without a package available in the package center I poked around and found the SPK for 2.0 (couldn’t find a 1.8 spk) and installed that manually through the package center. Package running!
That’s as far as I have been able to get in a week. when I go to
my browser tries for a long time to load and finally present’s a small bit of border at the top of the page and times out. I took a look at the source and it is pulling 663 lines of html but something is clearly broken.
I figured I would run a demo and start with that as an example. most of the help files I found about where to find the conf files are out to lunch. I scratched together enough putty knowledge to finally SSH into my synology and I found the files here:
although I did create
the install didn’t use these folders. I edited
package = demo
but when I went to the package center and stopped the OpenHAB2 package, it wouldn’t re-start. I also tried
package = standard
but with the same result. Once I commented the line back out, the package will run again but I can’t get my browser to show me anything useful.
I opened port 8080 wide open on my synology. I didn’t set a forward in my router for security reasons but that shouldn’t matter since I am on my LAN and using the local IP of the synology
I went into the package center and took a look at the logs for the OpenHAB2 package. I see errors there but I’m not sure what it all means or how to fix it. To make matters worse, I can’t find a way to copy the logs from the package center and I can’t locate where they are stored. The error starts out with something about Java failing to generate a new SSL certificate.
If anyone has any suggestions, I could sure use some help. Thanks in advance.
