API not working correctly

Post by Figge71 » Sat Nov 02, 2019 7:29 am

I badly need your help, I’ve tried to find a solution for a long time.

I have installed Zoneminde 1.32 on Centos 7.
And it seams to work fine, I get som error messages, but they seam to come because of the cameras.

When trying to start up ZMninja I can see everything except for the live view.

When reading
https://zmninja.readthedocs.io/en/lates ... s/FAQ.html

I get stuck on the part where I’m suppose to test that the api is working, see below. I can’t find a solution.

I’ve tried to reinstall everything a few times, but I get the same result. Am I missing something when installing, shouldn’t it work on a clean installation?

I appreciate all surgeries that could help me 😊

You think your APIs are working, but they are really not. If you open a browser and type in https://yourserver/zm/api/monitors.jsonand you see some text on top followed by monitor data, your APIs are not working. You need to search the forums and figure out how to get rid of that text.

I am getting the same with 1.32.3 on Raspian Buster on a Pi 3B. The console is working and zmNinja can find the portal but not the API. http://(myserver)/zm/api/events.json just gets: The requested URL was not found on this server. Apache/2.4.38 (Raspbian) Server at pi3one Port 80

Console options has opt_use_api checked on.

If anyone has suggestions what to check figge71 and I would greatly appreciate!

If you are running apache, I would look at the logs for errors there. I bet you have either some path issues (the webserver cannot get to the files) or else the permissions are not allowing it to read the files. On Debian-based systems, the logs should be in /var/log/apache2 There are access logs and error logs and CGI logs etc.

Thank you!
I really appreciate the suggestions. It sounds likely, especially sins I have hade problems with permissions before.

I’ll try it when I get som spare time :)

All of my error logs are mostly harmless :(
After rebooting, it's just:

cat error.log

Is there anything occurring in syslog at the same time?

I have recently had to correlate between Apache logs and syslog and Zoneminder to figure out what's happening. If that doesnt help, I am pretty out of suggestions.

After the update to 1.34.6 the APIs suddenly started working without needing to do anything. I installed the update then checked zmNinja and it was able to connected and show the cameras. Several other things that were not working also are now fine.
Thanks to the dev team!
I have sent some paypal donation funds. Keep up the great work!
