I installed Openhabian 1.4 on Ubuntu Server 16.04.3 and intially had the problem with Frontail service not working. Todays update fixed that, but I noticed one cosmetic error - launching Open Hab Log Viewer from the Dasboard fails as the URL is set to http://openhabiandevice:9001.
A quick edit to services/dashboard.cfg fixed it, but it would be nice to have a permanent fix.
thx!!! have you checked if there’s already an issue logged on github?
Ooops! No, I didn’t check and yes there is an issue logged.
I didn’t neither but I faced the same issue and found your solution. so thanks again
Thanks for the information. A similar thread topic can be found here: Openhabian wrong URL for Frontail
In my case, I changed the hostname from the default
ohpi. The dashboard’s Log Viewer link is a hard-coded URL:
http://openhabianpi:9001 so changing the Pi’s hostname breaks the URL.
Full path to the file containing the URL:
Perhaps the URL in dashboard.cfg should rely on an environment variable like HOSTNAME?
