I wanted to add a persistence service to my OpenHAB2 installation on my Synology DS212+, selected JDBC:SQLite in Paper UI and uncommented the default SQLite configuration from the jdbc.cfg file in the services folder.
Unfortunately, OH2 just crashed and since then I was unable to start it ever again. Rebooting the system did not work. Obviously I can’t use Paper UI to remove the persistence service, because it crashes before the Paper UI is launched
I removed the SQLite reference from org.openhab.addons.cfg, removed the jdbc.cfg file, to no avail. Somehow openhab is still trying to load the not working SQLite persistence each and every time I try to start it and fails.
The lib causing the crash is
I can delete that lib from the tmp folder, but with each start a new copy magically appears and crashes.
How can a get out of this cycle without setting up a completely new instance? This is really driving me nuts!
