Last night, we went to bed with everything working as normal. This morning I woke up and noticed the lights weren’t turning on via motion sensor. To my shock and horror in the app I am met with error after error about configuration.yaml not being found, and I couldn’t do anything in the app anymore.
Not too distressed but very annoyed I went to the PC, and tried accessing it directly through the Pi’s IP. Nope. Connection refused. Pinged it, and everything looked normal. Tried SSH into it, didn’t work. Tried connecting it direct to my monitor and there is simply no connection.
What the hell happened? Why did it happen? What could I do to prevent it from happening in the future? I do have a backup but I’m not exactly keen to install it again if I don’t know what the issue is.
