Newbi Question: Floorplan / WWW Folder


I’m a newbi to HASSio, but am a regular on Linux and system / networking stuff.
I have HASSio running on my Raspberry PI 3B+, with a 32 GB SD (fast) card as storage.
Lovelace is working, so is SSH access and a number of things.

I can login, I found the yaml config files, but where is the www folder I need to implement Floorplan?

Any pointers?



If you don’t have this directory, you need to create it yourself. It should be in the same directory as configuration.yaml.

Thx for the fast reply.

The configuration.yaml file is in my installation under /config.

Do you mean like this: /config/www or /www ?

Subfolders like /config, /data, /backup all seem to be on the top level (root directory).
And what permissions do i need to give?


Correct, config/www

Make sure you reboot after :slight_smile:


Yes exactly, and restart as @Vasco said.

Please be informed that if you want to reference to the www directory in your yaml configuration you have to do it like this:
E.g. if you have a file test.jpg inside the www directory and want to use it in the floorplan you use it like this:


Just to confirm that things work as expected, but:

the Folder www needs to be on top level, not under config/.

And all references to the www folder has to be in form /local/, as @Burningstone said above


Could it be that your folder structure is like this?

|_ configuration.yaml
|_ config
  |_ file.xy
  |_ file.ab


Not quite:

|_ root (linux top level)
|_ backups
|_ config
|_ |_ configuration.yaml
|_ data
|_ www (This is new and works here!)

The traditional linux folders /etc, /var etc. have been left out above…

Sorry I don’t get it :sweat_smile: Do you have a directory config inside the directory config?

Sry, can’t seen to get the same form as you do, but should be understandable now…

There’s a config on the top level
configuration.yaml is in that folder

Ok. Strange. Anyway, it works, that’s the most important thing :slight_smile:


Now to customize the Floorplan…
Good thing i’ve got Inkscape on my box already…
