Can't start ZoneMinder

Post by daspug » Fri Aug 21, 2015 1:02 pm

Hi All,
Hoping you can help...

Today our ZoneMinder server failed, and I'm having to rebuild it from scratch.

I've installed Debian Jessie, and followed the guide at terminal28 (it won't let me paste the link).

I'm having a problem though where ZoneMinder won't start with the following error:

Starting ZoneMinder: Can't exec "/usr/bin/zmsystemctl.pl": No such file or directory at /usr/bin/zmpkg.pl line 180.
Success

Even though it says success, the ZM web interface shows the service as stopped, and can't start it.

I get no errors when running "service zoneminder start", only when I use the "/etc/init.d/zoneminder start" method... but either way, the web site states that it's stopped.

I've checked that /usr/bin/zmsystemctl.pl exists (which it does), yet I consistently receive the above message.

Any ideas on how to fix this? I need to get the CCTV back up and running ASAP!

Thanks,

DaSpug
