openHAB Milestone builds

in my addons.cfg there is no such ENTIRE

Hi @ollis112

Did you install the rest API thru the UI? (I haven’t used the UI for along time) :wink:

Maybe you can find it it somewhere here?

A comma-separated list of miscellaneous services to install (e.g. “misc = myopenhab”)

#misc =

all entries are preceded by a “#”

Ok, what about the other files?

Else you may habe better luck fixing it with openhab-cli

You can get list of installed bundles with bundle:list | grep -i rest

Here are my list from my M1 installation

openhab> bundle:list | grep -i rest

You could try to uninstall it with

bundle:uninstall <ID>

My List is the same like your list
And now??

I’m sure there are something some where that has not been cleaned up.

Did you try to clear your cache?

I made a script to make it easy here: My point of view of Openhab2, stability and a few good to know stuff

Have you checked in
userdata/config/org/openhab/addons.config ?

My Cache is clear

Ok, could you post the content of the 3 files: ?


I had also installed the rest docs via paperui and had the same error message. You need to edit userdata/config/org/openhab/addons.config, as others have said, and remove restdocs from the misc=-line.
Then you can reinstall it through paperui.

Hi :slight_smile:

I made a sum up of my findings here: My point of view of Openhab2, stability and a few good to know stuff

Thank you first for your help. But after my system had crashed completely, I have to set it up anew.
Here is a question:
Can I restore the backup from 2.5M1 to M2?
If not, where can I get the M1 version to import the backup?
Many thanks

Hi @ollis112

You are welcome. Happy to help :slight_smile:

You should be able to download 2.5M1 at the old repo by hand here:

OK, it will be installed this evening. Thank you


installed 2.5M2 yesterday and after some initial difficulties it now runs smooth. I had to restart openHAB several times before most of the exceptions in the log disappeared. I have two remaining issues, maybe it is useful for someone else:

  1. To resolve exceptions by the org.openhab.core.ephemeris binding (still have to check out, what this is for) could only be resolved by creating services/ephemeris.cfg, as stated somewhere else on this forum :

Setting these parameters in PaperUI was not enough, but I prefer config files anyway. I could not find any documentation regarding valid region codes, so I am not really sure, what I configured :wink:

  1. The KNX2 binding throws the following exception on every start, but it seems to work OK anyhow:
2019-08-12 00:41:25.572 [WARN ] [mmon.WrappedScheduledExecutorService] - Scheduled runnable ended with an exception:

after upgrading my Docker Installation I get the tollowing error in my Docker Terminal:

Launching the openHAB runtime...
Error installing bundle listed in with url: mvn:org.apache.karaf.features/org.apache.karaf.features.extension/4.2.2 and startlevel: 1

After a complete deletion of all configs, 2.5.0.M2 won’t start either …

Kind regards


Edit: Looks like the Docker container are still referencing to the of 2.5.0.M1

After the start of the container my is overwritten by 2.5.0.M1 file …

After a recreation of the container from scratch, everything works as expected.

I just did M2 upgrade today. Initially I had constant warnings about items not existing (even though they did). Clean-cache / reboots didn’t help. Ended up doing an uninstall and reinstall. (not purge - I kept my config files and everything else untouched)

After the reinstall everything started up correctly.

With a cleared cache, 2.5M2 logs a bunch of errors and usually warnings about missing Items. The cache should be cleared in the upgrade, so this happens on first start. After a few minutes and the logs are calm, restart OH again and the errors will be gone.

So, after clearing the cache, restart twice. I thought there was an issue for this already in GH (I can’t search for it ATM), but there may not be.

4 posts were split to a new topic: Looking for 2.5M1

I just upgraded from 2.5 M1, and I am now having trouble with my embeded MQTT broker. I’m using the MQTT binding and the internal MQTT broker. My MQTT broker Thing now shows up as offline. I see that the name has changed on the broker since the upgrade. Screenshot%202019-08-24%2008%3A52%3A35

I have deleted my MQTT broker as a thing, reinstalled the broker but then nothing appears in my inbox anymore. Is this a known issue? Or have I just missed something here? I’m leaning toward the latter.
