Fresh install from wiki doesn't start

Post by xerox » Thu Apr 02, 2020 9:51 am

After fresh install of Debian10.3 , following step by step:
https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Debian_10_B ... -1.34_Repo

including https://www.digitalocean.com/community/ ... -debian-10

All installed by root and NOT by user with sudo

once "systemctl start zoneminder"

Job for zoneminder.service failed because the control process exited with error code.
See "systemctl status zoneminder.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

I realized the whole system is already running fine, probably the apt install starts zoneminder at the end, and , following wiki, I was trying to manually start an already started session....

Sorry for wasting time... :?
