Java Runtime Environment: whatever came with OH v2.5
openHAB version: 2.5
So I decided to cut my losses and start a new install from scratch following the official documentation at https://www.openhab.org/docs/installation/openhabian.html however after I write the image to and SD power on the PI and leave it for 45 min I cannot get access to http://openhab:8080 and/or load the GUI from the web browser. Putty does seem to work however I do not get the screen as shown in the turorial (below)…
In openhabian, did you setup network sharing? Like via samba? You should be able to configure this via the openhabian menu when you access the pi via putty. After that you should be able to map the network drive in windows.
