Troubleshooting

1. Errors during installation

Make sure you installed the package with

sudo
and used the
--unsafe-perm
flag. Most installation errors can be fixed by removing the plugin and reinstalling:
# cleanup
sudo npm uninstall -g homebridge-config-ui-x

reinstall

sudo npm install -g --unsafe-perm homebridge-config-ui-x

Make sure you are running supported versions of node and npm.

2. Accessories tab missing

If the Accessories tab is not shown then you are not running Homebridge in insecure mode. See the Enabling Accessory Control wiki for details. If you have just enabled insecure mode make sure you have restarted Homebridge and refreshed the page in your browser.

3. Running in Docker

This plugin supports the oznu/homebridge Docker image. You must enable the UI using the method described in the wiki.
