I am in the process of moving my openhab installation from Windows to a Synology docker container. Now I run into a problem where someone might have a solution.
When trying if the rest api is running as expected in a browser with:
I get just some ASCII symobls shown: P
Trying the same with https
I get all items shown after I confirmed to load the page ignoring the certificate error
Using https in VS Code produces an error (I saw a github entry that accessing rest api by https is currently not working.)
If I use just the ip (so http) I get:
Error while connecting to openHAB REST API. Parse Error
Which is clear if vs code gets the same ascii chars I see in the browser.
I also tried port 8080 but this seems to lead to my Synology directly and brings a
HTTP Status 404 – Not Found
Is there a different port I should use?
No sure if I can map the ports in my Synology since I used the Synology Docker GUI and can’t find a port mapping there. Even if there would be one I am unsure which ports should be mapped to what.
I would be fine to not access it with https and use http instead but I have no idea what the problem is since even the call from a browser is not working and I just get those ascii characters.
Any hint is much appretiated since I don’t wan’t to go back to my Windows setup.
PS I am using latest stable docker openhab and latest openhab vs code plugin
