Please help my not so good memory!!
I have a Raspberry Pi, running HomeAssistant, that I built several years ago. It is doing just fine, but I feel that things should be updated. Since I am hesitant to upgrade a working system, my plan is to buy another Raspberry Pi, will install everything on it, and then use the new one. Sounds simple, but…
I installed the Raspberry Linux and everything worked just fine, including SSH (once I enabled it). I then followed the instructions here https://www.home-assistant.io/getting-started/, but after doing this, I could no longer SSH to the machine! I hooked up a monitor, etc., and found that logging in was directly to HomeAssistant. Not what I was hoping for and not what currently exists!
Looking at the existing system, I see that HomeAssistant in installed in the folder /home/pi/homeassistant (and others). However, the websites I am finding talk about creating a folder /srv/homeassistant, a homeassistant user, etc and going from there. Maybe this is the ‘new’ way to do things, but unless there is a reason not to, I would like to recreate that which I did before.
I did not take good notes last time and have forgotten what I did. So, can you please point me to instructions for installing HomeAssistant like I did in Sept 2017? Thanks.
