So this is my 3rd attempt at getting Hass.io working. Since I last broke it (about a year ago) I switched to Ubuntu so am going through that learning curve at the same time.
My problem is i’m stuck at the most basic thing, I have enabled SSH but can’t remember how to actually edit the yaml files.
When i connect via putty and do a LS it doesn’t return anything… I vaguely remember something about it running in a vm or something but thats all
Can someone point me to how to change the yaml files? If possible I have seen something about people using VSCode and i’d prefer to use that but for now i’d just be happy to use Nano or something.
after you ssh as root into your pi, cd to root “cd /”. There, if you do an ls -l, you will see all the directories. Your .yaml’s are in /config. I use nano (kinda vi like) as my editor. ( nano configuration.yaml )
Thanks. Had to do cd /
I thought the ~ sign meant that i was already in root.
so… if i do ‘nano configuration.yaml’ it will edit in the terminal but if i remember right i had lots of problems with formatting last time. I was hoping i could open it in a external viewer like notepad ++ or VScode etc… But only way i can think of to do that is the copy it to my local machine, edit and then copy back. Is there a better way for a noob?
Never mind i used SSHFS… was easy (hopefully it comes back on reboot but i can deal with that later).
