Upgrade to Openhab 2.1 fail to start

Thanks Brend. I removed all rules and I get the same problem.

java version "1.8.0_131"
Java™ SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_131-b11)
Java HotSpot™ Server VM (build 25.131-b11, mixed mode)

/var/lib/openhab2/tmp/* it is empty
/var/lib/openhab2/cache/* does not exist

Thanks Angelos for your help

I don’t know what could be going wrong…
try /usr/share/openhab2/start_debug.sh to see if there are more useful info posted in the openhab.log

I get this:

Launching the openHAB runtime…

permissions (maybe?)

That sounds as if openHAB has lost permissions to access it’s folders, if you’re running apt, then the user:group config should be set to openhab:openhab, does a sudo chown -R openhab:openhab [dir] on each of openHAB’s directories solve the problem? i.e.

sudo chown -R openhab:openhab /var/lib/openhab2
sudo chown -R openhab:openhab /usr/share/openhab2
sudo chown -R openhab:openhab /var/log/openhab2
sudo chown -R openhab:openhab /etc/openhab2

@Dim beat me to the same point :wink:

It did not work. Now I get:

I’m completely baffled, as far as you know this is a standard install of openHAB? I’ve not seen this before. I’d suggest making a backup of the /var/lib/openhab2, and /etc/openhab2 at this point just in case we need to do a purge and reinstall.

Would you be able to post the response of these commands?

openHAB 2 service configuration

Additional options for the JAVA_OPTS environment variable.

These will be appended to the execution of the openHAB Java runtime in front of all other options.

A couple of independent examples:

EXTRA_JAVA_OPTS="-Dgnu.io.rxtx.SerialPorts=/dev/ttyAMA0"

EXTRA_JAVA_OPTS="-Dgnu.io.rxtx.SerialPorts=/dev/ttyUSB0:/dev/ttyS0:/dev/ttyS2:/dev/ttyACM0:/dev/ttyAMA0"

EXTRA_JAVA_OPTS="-Djna.library.path=/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/ -Duser.timezone=Europe/Berlin -Dgnu.io.rxtx.SerialPorts=/dev/ttyS0"

EXTRA_JAVA_OPTS=""

The ports openHAB will bind its HTTP/HTTPS web server to.

#OPENHAB_HTTP_PORT=8080
#OPENHAB_HTTPS_PORT=8443

Thanks again.

Those are the results.
Sorry for the type of font. I don’t know why shows like that.

Found the problem! Is there any reason why you’ve changed these settings? This by default is

User=openhab
Group=openhab

No problem, you can wrap things in ticks to format them as if they were code

I change the user long time ago, because I was getting all the time a permission problem.

I change it back to openhab, but I get this:

To be clear, you changed both the user and group to openhab?

If you restart the machine, wait a few minutes and then post the output of:

sudo systemctl daemon-reload
sudo systemctl restart openhab2
sudo journalctl -u openhab2 -b

Yes I change both.

I run the commands and I get

Maybe something didn’t go well with the upgrade…

Can you try to re-install OH 2.1? (although… it still looks like you have permission problems)

Backup your /etc/openhab2/ and /var/lib/openhab2/ directories
(see here how to: http://docs.openhab.org/installation/linux.html#backup-and-restore)

then:

sudo systemctl stop openhab2
sudo apt-get remove openhab2
sudo apt-get install openhab2
sudo systemctl daemon-reload
sudo systemctl enable openhab2
sudo systemctl start openhab2

With apt-get remove, the config files will not be removed from their places (e.g. /etc/openhab2/ and /var/lib/openhab2/jsondb) so you shouldn’t need to restore them. Don’t use apt-get purge (this will remove the config dirs & files also) :slight_smile:

Thanks a lot.
I did it, but I get the same
