Can I get zoneminder explained a little?

Post by jyanscole74 » Wed Oct 28, 2020 6:30 pm

Hello, I'm running Ubuntu 19.10 and installed Zoneminder (1.32) with Docker (19.03.3) and using Kitematic for GUI

Anyways I'm kind of a noob to everything minus a little Ubuntu and I'm stuck trying to get Zoneminder to give me a web UI but all I get is an Apache starting page that tells me Apache server is working. I'm just trying everything out to see if it'd be useful for a simple security camera setup and was going to try it with a webcam first

Anyways, can anyone tell me how to get a login screen so I can make an account and get started? I keep googling and get info on editing Apache but they're also doing direct installs and not with docker so I'm not sure how that transfers between each other

Use this as a guide and reference where you get stuck (if you do).

See dummies guide in sig for explanation.

The install guides for debian / ubuntu might help. Review a few of them.

Even though you use docker, the configs are similar. Almost all questions on ZM have been answered in this forum. Search here.
fastest way to test streams:
ffmpeg -i rtsp://<ipaddress>:554/path output.mp4
from terminal, and run through paths on ispydb or in zm hcl
