Re: Could not open out file: permission denied

the directories ownership needs to be the same as the web server and Zoneminder user. There are several that need to be the same.

Re: Unable to connect to ZM db

I think your problem is as simple as the wrong permissions are set for the ZM configuration directory /etc/zm!

insure that
/etc/zm
/var/cache/zoneminder
/var/log/zm

all are owned by the webserver and ZM user! In my case it is www-data most of the time

Code: Select all

chown -R www-data:www-data /etc/zm

Re: Unknown Column ONVIF_URL

Hello Ic0n, once in awhile on some systems right after installing ZM and importing the zm_create.sql I also need to install the very last zm_update.sql manually and that fixes these errors. Only on some systems though and I thought since I'm mostly installing ZM on the outer fringes operating system...

Re: Cannot view events!

Hello! have you checked the system clock and looked at the setting for TimeZone in Options->Systems in Zoneminder? also a restart of the mysql server may be needed to sync the time between the servers. I may be way off but it's a start The time being correct is important for the way the events are n...

Re: New mobile app Surveillance Pro for IPhone

ZM 1.30.4 runs well in Bionic. Maybe try and email the dev's at Mediabridge Technology GmbH.

I've never tried out the app yet, looks interesting but sounds like it needs some love

Re: filter warning

no I don't think so, and I have seen this before as well.
Try in the mysql to import the /usr/share/zoneminder/db/zm_update-1.35.1.sql or /usr/local/share/zoneminder/db/zm_update-1.35.1.sql again.

also try

Code: Select all

zmupdate.pl -f
Did this appear right after the upgrade to 1.35.1 ?

Re: Error: Can't open '/var/lib/zoneminder/events/...'

interesting...I am seeing this as well on 2 different systems. Check the permissions for /var/cache/zoneminder/event/ and then each individual monitor directory which corresponds to the monitor number. In my case the permissions of the newly created directories end up starting out as 440 but should ...

Re: No interface access after upgrade 1.30.4 to 1.34.5

Using /etc/zm/conf.d/zmcustom.conf is the correct solution in this case. I also use https://zmserver/cgi-bin instead of https://zmserver/zm/cgi-bin and I am using 'webuser' instead of 'www-data' so using the configuration file, which remains static and unaffected by updates and upgrades of ZM, is th...

Re: ZoneMinder 1.32.3 Freenas API Failure

the url http://<myserver>/zm/api for checking the API function is not correct and will not work.

In a browser login to ZM open another tab and enter the url

Code: Select all

http://<myserver>/zm/api/host/getVersion.json
you should see the API and ZM version as a reponse

Re: Login validated but API failed

I see, I think in the docs on the API the authorization methods are updated. Do you have the Options->System->OPT_USE_LEGACY_API_AUTH enabled?


Have you checked out https://zoneminder.readthedocs.io/en/1.32.3/api.html? It has some good tips for communicating with the API
