Upgrade to 1.26.4?

Post by Magic919 » Mon Oct 07, 2013 1:50 pm

My UI seems to be prompting this, but there's no actual download available. I can grab it from Git, but is this the intention?

I'd be interested in knowing the procedure here too.

I'm using a Puppet install of Zoneminder, but I have tweaked some of the Puppet configured apache config for my own system.

Do you just pull the latest repo, re-run the full Puppet install and Zoneminder itself will get re-built without upsetting anything else?

I just went to my fresh install of ZM by clicking on the "v1.26.3" version number at the top of the main page and I got:

"You are running the most recent version of ZoneMinder, v1.26.3.
No update is necessary."

SO I wonder how you guys got a notification that a new version was available?!

I was getting the 1.26.4 upgrade notice as well, so I just downloaded the latest git branch and re-compiled from source.

I'm using Issac Connor's ZoneMinder PPA repo on Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS and upgraded from 1.26.3 to 1.26.4 successfully, however there were a few issues during the upgrade process I thought I would mention here to assist others.

1.) The upgrade may fail initially because the 'db' directory cannot be found in /build/buildd/zoneminder-1.26.4. Create a symbolic link named 'db' in /build/buildd/zoneminder-1.26.4 pointing to /usr/share/zoneminder/db.

2.) It appears the upgrade script that's executed when installing the new zoneminder package via 'apt-get upgrade' changes your 'zmuser' database user password to the default 'zmpass'. I would suggest backing up your zm.conf file before installing the newer zoneminder package from the PPA repo and allow your zm.conf to be replaced with the newer version when prompted during the upgrade. After the upgrade has completed successfully, stop ZM, edit the new zm.conf to reflect your original DB user pass you set, change the DB user's password to the same and then start ZM again.

Hope this helps!
