Reset Config and Databases

Hey guys,

i just wanted to know the easiest and fastest way to reset all the openhab dev environment.
So that there are no saved items, things, etc.

Thank you!

Regards, Max

Stop openHAB.

If running apt-get installed, delete the contents of /var/lib/openhab2 run the following command

sudo apt -o Dpkg::Options::="--force-confmiss" install --reinstall openhab2

Restart openHAB.

If running manual install delete the contents of $OPENHAB_HOME/userdata.


Hi together,
I used that command as well to clear ghost zwave items. Unfortunately now openhab does not work anymore. (bindings do not work, status of things are not displayed…) seems like OH2 does not really start.

What do I have to reconfigure in order that the old setup is still working?
In Paper UI and Habmin, things are visible even with values…

Many thanks upfront for support…
