Does a stable release not always include Luci?

I read in several places that I should prefer a stable release of OpenWRT to a snapshot release because the snapshots don't contain Luci preinstalled. I therefore concluded that the stable releases always contain Luci. The other day I installed OpenWRT on the TP-Link EAP615 but could not access Luci on the APs IP address. I installed it manually and it works now.

Was my assumption wrong and not all stable releases have Luci preinstalled?

A stable release like 22.03.5 or 23.05.0-RC1 will always have LuCI installed unless you customize the image and do not include it yourself.

What image did you download?

The link in the Wiki is actually snapshot.

Try instead:

Then the wiki page is outdated, it's a matter of commenting and uncommenting a couple for rows in the template.

Indeed, I hadn't noticed "snapshot" in the table column title but only looked at the column "Current Release" which showed 22.03.5.
