Re: 1.30.04-> 1.32.3 Ubuntu 18.04: "Upgrade", or de-install re-install?

I'm running Debian (have to upgrade to the development fork, "sid, to rn ZM 1.32") and after numerous stability problems I can say that I wish that I'd never tried 1.32. Right now I have NO system because I have zero confidence that it can be stable (I'm on my third system rebuild and am just burned...

New install on Debian, question

After dealing with numerous problems I've decided once again to do a fresh install of everything. I am not sure if my problems to-date have been due to running bits from Debian sid, so before I continue with the install of ZM I'd like to get some clarification.

Re: Unable to connect to Logs table

Dropping and recreating the Logs table and, for now, things seem to be working as expected.

Interesting is that removing the innoDB log file allowed zm to start, but I was only getting one of my four cameras to come up (stream) and nothing was showing in the zm logs.

Re: Database upgrade fails

I ended up dropping the Logs table and recreating (using code from zm DB create script).

Re: Database upgrade fails

Not certain if my situation has any connection with th OP's, but I'm going to toss it in here in case it may. MY issue isn't due to an upgrade (full, fresh install, Debian sid). Due to who knows what, my computer keeps becoming inaccessible (headless, so I have to resort to resetting power to then b...

Unable to connect to Logs table

This combo, Debian sid & ZM 1.32.3, is tending to be extremely frustrating/unstable. Can only run a couple of days before something causes zm to no longer be accessible. I loose the ability to connect via internet (no web access or other), so no ability to diagnose (system is headless). I can only f...

Re: Zoneminder Idle Usage

I've seen very little difference with system loads between 1.30.4 and 1.32.3. If anything, 1.32.3 seems to drop to a lower load level: I've seen system load drop below 0.30 (quad core); under 1.30.4 it seems that lowest was more around twice that. When very active, however, 1.32.3 is loads are highe...

Re: Improving motion detection

Start with the predefined settings and then tweak. Working with percentages rather than pixels also seems easier.

These things just take time.

Re: No display in Montage - or ability to see recordings

What documentation did you use for your install?

Might be an underlying directory link level issue.

Re: ZoneMinder integration with Home Assistant

Is this a mobile app? (f so, then refer to the Mobile Apps forum section).

Sounds like an API issue. Look around for how to test if you've properly configured API use on ZM (web server is more so the issue).

Re: ZMninja - Video is not playable on Events

Are you having issues via web browser on your phone? What about via web browser on a computer? If only on the phone then you're most likely going to have to use ADB to trace things down. Am assuming that it's not a basic API problem (which would show as problems logging in and such; a problem that I...

Re: ZmNinja does not play event footage

Check your cameras' resolution.

Here's a thread on this (NOTE: this issue should be addressed within the apps forum section as it really only seems an issue with apps/smart phones):

Re: What version of mariaDB to use (Debian [sid])?

Installed version 10.1.37 (was running 10.3.11 when I had a corruption, and then attempts to reinstall was trying, unsuccessfully, to install version 10.3.12). Only been running for a couple of hours now but I figure I'll sign off on it.

Re: InnoDB: Corruption of an index tree: table `zm`.`Logs` index `GEN_CLUST_INDEX'

Not sure what was the source of all this, but I suspect it might have been due to running mariaDB 10.3 (had 10.3.11 running and after doing an update it tried pulling in version 10.3.12 after which the config and install would fail no matter what I did; so, I ended up installing mariaDB 10.1.37 and ...
