[Solved] Is home.myopenhab.org down?

Accessing OpenHAB from my computer, the site is a bit slow, however it is still usable.

Accessing it from the android app (which updated a few days ago), it is extremely slow. From opening the app, until the dashboard is shown, it takes more than a minute. Navigating the dashboard from the android app is similarly slow.

I’m observing the same, using my android phone in Germany(Vodafone).

I’ve noticed the issue before the app upgrade, so IMO the issue exists on server side. I’ve set a vpn connection to home, and configured the local ip as remote server in the app, it works fine also. Unfortunately it seems, there is a storm in the clouds…

i’ve seen from the adnroid app in LAN WIFI, it’s slow (about one minute to load content of OH devices), but from IOS app, it’s fast. i suppose it’s related to last update released for android.
from LAN webinterface and from LAN WIFI IOS APP, it’s everything fast.
From outsite, 3g or internet, everything goes in timeout expired both from APP and from myopenhab website.

yes, very nice workaround to manage temporarly home devices! good idea!

If you want to support financially myopenhab.org, become a member of https://www.openhabfoundation.org/

See here how: Ready to join the openHAB Foundation?

They pay all the expenses for maintaining the forum, demo, website, myopenhab servers, as well as events, etc

From what I know, the infrastructure maintenance team is already working to scale up the myopenhab platform by adding more computing power to handle the increased load.

Ps: You will also get that cool smiley next to your avatar! :stuck_out_tongue: image

Lots of links in that thread no longer works.

True…I would reply in that thread for Kai to fix the first post
Actually, from the first post, only https://www.openhabfoundation.org/members/membership.html gives a 404 I think. All others are ok.

Hi All,
myopenhab.com is still down. Click on:

You are using openHAB 2.x. Click here to access your openHAB’s dashboard

Will result in a 504 Gateway Time-out

and Google Home integration does not work

that link just gives me :cry: Should it be .org and not .com ?


Correct is .org


but sesult is the same, 504 Gateway Time-out

504 Gateway Time-out

nginx/1.10.0 (Ubuntu)

Mmmm… It seems that the NGINX proxy that gives access to our local openHAB installations through the cloud connection is saturated or out of service. Could it be an attack?

They are looking into this.

It’s more complex than just adding more hardware… see this (from Nov/17)

Its a year old thread… ??
I dont think it explain these last coupple of days where things respons from the server is either very slow or not functioning at all. Something seem like have happen 2-3 days ago. In the same periode, the new release of the Android App was released. Maybe this is where problems started.

it has nothing to do with timing
similar problems existed last year and in my view… the underlying problem is:

community contribution to the development and improvement of the myopenhab platform … a contribution which is almost non-existent… (either technical or financial)

the same people are struggling to find free time to improve the platform which is enjoyed by more and more (especially with the popularity of voice control) with a very small minority supporting the foundation :stuck_out_tongue:

disclaimer: this is my personal opinion and I don’t represent the foundation. I am simply a regular member.

No quick fix then.

I dont disagree with you. The problem is, people are reporting problems for two days now. When noone answers, how are they/we suppose to know anything?

Linking to a year old thread may assume things was fixed sometime back then. At least thats what I assumed.

I know every developer in this are struggling to find free time to improve the system. And I really do apprciate their effort. But if its a question of supporting the foundation, then someone has to speak up! Right now we´re alot of user just trying to understand whats going on. If the answer to getting myopnehab to run smoothly, is to support the foundation, then so be it. But someone has to speak up. I didn´t know, untill lately!

From what I know the team is working hard to fix the issues (I saw them working on it at 6am CET). I don’t know the details or the root-cause of the problem or how long it will take to fix it. If I find out something, I will reply here. I agree that it would be best if there was an “official” announcement.

Regarding support (just using logic and common sense): “The more, the merrier” they say :slight_smile:
In general:
The more techies and developers looking into the code of https://github.com/openhab/openhab-cloud and discussing infrastructure options will improve the architecture and performance
The more regular members subscribing to the foundation will provide funds for more computing resources as needed.

I don’t know if the central team needs additional resources in this specific moment to fix faster the problems. I don’t think so. I believe that the challenge is finding free time to troubleshoot and solve the technical issues.

Anyway, many people are affected by this situation and I am sure that it will be resolved soon.
It seems that the workload on the servers has increased significantly recently.


Which, to my understanding, is what many seems to be waiting for.

I know, (now). Untill recently I thought the foundation was business/commercial purpose only. Apparently I didnt pay enough attention to this matter.
