Re: Edit login page for zoneminder?

Try

/usr/share/zoneminder/www/skins/classic/views/login.php

If you are using a different skin then "classic" in the above line may be something else.

Re: Amcrest PTZ functionality

Hey alabamatoy, can I assist you in getting this into ZoneMinder? Do you have plans to do so, or can I just grab the script and make a PR in your name? This code apparently never made it into the repo. My new 1.32.3 install has no amcrest control scripts. Oh well, I know yall got a lot going on.

Re: Storage question

I changed the storage location under each camera, and it worked. Thanks for pointing this out, I had not noticed the storage setting within each monitor. I have now changed all the monitors to point to the new storage area. I hope this eliminates some of the weird errors Im seeing in the log. One w...

Re: Storage question

I'll answer my own question, may be helpful to someone else. Apparently changing the values in OPTIONS/STORAGE has no effect on where storage is actually written/read. One must create and edit a .conf file in /etc/zm/conf.d as described here . This leads me to wonder what value the "storage" paged u...

stupid question: State?

Why is state not displayed on the console? Am I blind and just missing it? I can change the state by clicking on "RUNNING" in the top right corner, create and save states, but the console seems to display only "RUNNING" and doesnt display the current state anywhere. The state functionality seems ver...

ZM 1.32.3, firefox 70.0.1 on W7

Within an event, clicking on "download MP4" just plays the event, no file download occurs or is offered.

Is this a browser configuration issue?

documentation issue...

I just did a new install of 18.04LTS Ubuntu and proceeded to use the Zoneminder documentation to install ZM, and there is a minor issue. The changes that are suggested for mysql come *before* the install of ZM, so in bare Ubuntu 18.04, there is no mysql, so none of those commands work. On this page ...

User issue

Why does a user set to "view" monitors get the ability to create a new monitor? Shouldnt the "add new monitor" be unlinked (not clickable)?

This same user is precluded from the "montage review" link....why?

Re: 30+ cameras

Should the SQL perhaps be on a separate machine?

I guess it depends on how much user interaction is expected, and whether or not any motion detection/alerting etc.

Re: Change Running state via URL

The API supports this but not using username and PW, have to do auth using something like CURL. See https://zoneminder.readthedocs.io/en/st ... state-apis and https://zoneminder.readthedocs.io/en/st ... i-security
