Zoneminder not starting

Post by jimkoh » Tue Apr 28, 2020 8:41 pm

I was running ZM 1.32 on Debian 10 and everything was working fine. I then tried to upgrade to 1.34 and it said I was already running the latest version. So I removed ZM so I could do a fresh install. Now I get the following error when starting the zoneminder.service. Any suggestions?

ZM used to have some install steps executed by the user (creation of mysql db, permissions for db, apache enables, etc) but these are now handled by the dpkg install script and (the controversial) init. These steps are still in the .deb file, and if you download the package and extract. you will find install / uninstall steps. Unfortunately, for the average user, if something goes wrong during install, they don't always get a clear reason why the install failed.

From your error message it looks like you need to recreate the DB or update it again. # zmupdate.pl should run update scripts on the DB, if they failed.

EDIT: deleting edit due to response while editing post.

I thought the database was created during the install process. How do I recreate it?

After reading your post again, I see you were only updating, not installing. Disregard what I said about the install steps.

Occasionally the update db script will fail halfway. It's common. Just run the update command manually. It can take a while for large DBs.

Code: Select all

# zmupdate.pl
edit: this is wrong, see below.

I initially tried updating but it didn't work. So I uninstalled ZM and tried to do a fresh install per the wiki and the result is what I posted.

Ok, in that case unpack the .deb file and review the installation scripts. One of those steps failed.

Alternatively, you can review wiki install steps (go to the history, as the old ones get updated) and you should find the manual creation steps needed there.

Something like (this is an example of the steps, don't enter all of these in):

Code: Select all

apt-get install zoneminder  vlc-plugin-base php7.0-gd
adduser www-data video
apt-get install zoneminder
a2enmod cgi
a2enmod rewrite
a2enconf zoneminder
chmod 740 /etc/zm/zm.conf
chown root:www-data /etc/zm/zm.conf
mysql -uroot -p < /usr/share/zoneminder/db/zm_create.sql
mysql -uroot -p -e "grant all on zm.* to 'zmuser'@localhost identified by 'zmpass';"
mysqladmin -uroot -p reload
My guess, is you need to create the DB again. You can review mysql/mariadb to see if the db is there.

Code: Select all

mysql -u root -p
	show databases;
	use zm;
	show tables;

My ZM database had been deleted so I removed ZM again and did an install from the 1.34 deb file. It looks like the database wasn't created.

Please post debug output in code tags.

Try:

Code: Select all

mysql -uroot -p < /usr/share/zoneminder/db/zm_create.sql
mysql -uroot -p -e "grant all on zm.* to 'zmuser'@localhost identified by 'zmpass';"
mysqladmin -uroot -p reload
Note that this makes the pw zmpass. Your configs for zm should also have these credentials.

I typed the commands you suggested and now the console comes up, but the version says 1.32.3 and I'm getting errors when trying to stream from a camera. How can I upgrade to the latest version so I can start with a clean slate? I don't mind reinstalling everything, but I don't want to wipe out MariaDB because I have other db's is use.
Thanks
Jim

Installation docs are on the wiki

Backup any dbs and restore afterwards w/mysqldump.

I've followed the steps in the wiki but I only get version 1.32.3 which is what I was running before. The whole problem is it won't upgrade. This is what I get when I click the version number in the console.

You are running the most recent version of ZoneMinder, v1.32.3.

No update is necessary.

These install steps for 1.34 w/debian should work: https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Debian_10_B ... om_ZM_Repo

Then add the old db back into mysql/mariadb and # zmupdate.pl to get the db to 1.34

Are you adding the external repo?

What is the contents of /etc/apt/sources.list?
What do you get when you run # apt-cache show zoneminder?

What do you mean by: Then add the old db back into mysql/mariadb and # zmupdate.pl to get the db to 1.34?
At any time in your old ZM you can make a backup with mysqldump. For more details on backup and restore see https://wiki.zoneminder.com/MySQL, See the link in the backup/restore tip.

If you have a backup of the previous DB, you can reinstall, and then # mysql -u root -p < mysqldump_zm.sql should anything go wrong with the update.

That should load the DB back into mysql. After you do that, you should update the DB, therefore you can run zmupdate.pl (as root), which is a perl script that will run all update routines on the zm db (make sure you've configured the ZM db user, ZM mysql password, and db name. Defaults will be zmuser / zmpass, and zm for db name.). Sometimes the update can fail, but just run it again if it does. It will eventually complete (and can take a while on large DB).

This is the guide you should follow: https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Debian_10_B ... om_ZM_Repo
Which is listed at https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Debian

Bullseye is not mentioned in that guide. Also deb-multimedia is not in that guide either. I'd recommend you don't add those two repos. You may want to start over from scratch, or you can try to prioritize one repo over another (I think that can be done with apt pin priority in a config somewhere... Have to look it up).

It appears that deb-multimedia is taking priority over the other repos, although I might be wrong.

You might be able to just comment out deb-multimedia and bulleye, and apt-get update, then install ZM, however if you installed packages from those repos, things could very well break.

I don't have a back up of the DB. It was dropped when I uninstalled ZM the first time. It sounds like things are a mess, so moving forward, what is the best way to wipe out ZM so I can start fresh? I used dpkg -r zoneminder and dpkg --purge zoneminder but I'm not sure that's enough. I also don't want to wipe out MariaDB if I can help it because I have other db's in use.
After ZM is removed, I will follow the rest of your instructions and reinstall from scratch omitting bullseye and multimedia from my sources.list.
Thank you for all your help.
Jim
