Re: Paths and disappearing events

Change this: ScriptAlias /cgi-bin-zm "/usr/libexec/zoneminder/cgi-bin" To this: ScriptAlias /zm/cgi-bin "/usr/libexec/zoneminder/cgi-bin" At least as a start...at lunch now so I didn't take a very close look, I can look again in a bit. Be sure to reload or restart apache once you make the change. ed...

Re: Paths and disappearing events

MariaDB is fine, no worry there.

Can you post the contents of /etc/httpd/conf.d/zoneminder.conf and any configs in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/?

Re: Paths and disappearing events

What do you see in the Apache error log if you wail it while repeating your actions? That error can be caused by a few things but its often related to the Apache config for the cgi-bin path although it sounds like you might have a couple issues. The Apache log is a good place to start though.

Current state of inexpensive PTZ outdoor cams?

Its been years since I have shopped for IP camers since mine have been working well but I have always wanted a PTZ camera for one side of my house and it looks like some interesting sub $200 units exist now, some of them with optical zoom are even sub $150, so I think its time to integrate one into ...

Re: What OPTIONS_FFMPEG are supported by libav/ffmpeg?

I started to use "allowed_media_types=video, bitrate=2048" for my cams a while ago, not sure if they are still supported, but they still work very well. If I remember correctly I was getting some odd errors without using the allowed_media_types set to 'video' and setting the cams to a fixed bitrate ...

Re: Email Notifications are failing

Its been a while since I messed with emailing from ZM so I don't remember if it uses 'mail' to send email but you might want to make sure that you have the 'mailutils' package installed.

Re: What a piece of shit!!!

I have several large ZM systems running with no issues and they have been for years. It works well when properly configured but it requires knowledge of Linux and a bit of tinkering for your environment to get going. It is good software, if you can get it to work the problem exists between the keybo...

Re: Zoneminder Version v1.27.99.0

I still have a couple analog cams but after discovering a good source of outdoor HD IP cams for under $40 I have replaced most of them. The only two analogs I still run are only still in service as they have 1.6 or 1.8MM lenses (cant remember) and are perfect for our front and rear door as they have...

Re: Ubuntu 14.04.1 and zm 1.27.1 issues

Yesterday I installed the latest version (1.27.99+1) and seems that is working fine, except for a RTSP camera, that is hanging after 10 seconds watching live video with an already reported. Are you setting a max and min FPS setting for that cam on the ZM side? If so, remove them and try it out. Tho...

Re: Zoneminder Version v1.27.99.0

Its always funny how quickly you can just re-do everything from scratch after hacking on ZM for a while, and often when building software with a lot of specific dependencies its a good move when you hit a wall especially if you might have some old libs lurking around. For DB issues I will usually ju...

Re: Zoneminder Version v1.27.99.0

I just double checked my home system as I just built .99 on it a few days ago and had not really paid much attention to it. I am getting motion events but I run 'mocord' on everything as I prefer to have 24x7 video with highlighted events.

Re: Streaming video doesn't work.

I haven't messed with Slackware in probably over a decade so I am not sure of its current state, but does it need the cgi module enabled for Apache? What do you get in your Apache error log when you try to view events?
