OpenHAB Designer installation

I am having some problems with making rules work using HABmin, I can make them work but when I want to edit them OpenHAB stops working and I have to reboot. I still need HABmin to handle my z-wave devices though…

OpenHAB Designer is local programming and designing environment and this is why it is a good thing to have SMB enabled for your OpenHab. To make it work you need to either change permissions on the directories OpenHAB Designer needs to access or sign into the share as root after you have given the root user access to the Openhab share…  both solutions have their own security issues and you should change it back when you are in “production”.

Now is a good time to make a backup image of you OpenHAB installation!
