Re: no thumbnails

Just a shout for those still having issues... check your enabled PHP version. I had version 7.0 enabled as well as 7.2 enabled. Had to disable version 7.0 before my thumbnails would pop up.

Check by seeing what versions you have in:/etc/apache2/mods-enabled

Re: Re-purposing a dvr

I fear that this will most likely be impossible. Most off-the-shelf DVRs are simple devices. They use SoCs, and are ARM/MIPS based processors. Yes, they are running linux most of the time, but writing new software to the SoC would be as difficult (if not more) than trying to install a custom ROM on ...

Re: Automatically Set States via Tasker for Android (WORKING!)

Glad you got it working-ish? I haven't been using this setup in quite a while... but if I remember correctly, I just told Tasker to "GET" a webpage at the address with the corresponding .php file. Unfortunately this is a HUGE security risk, as anyone on the outside can then trigger this php file. He...

Weatherunderground Upload Script / Timelapse Video

NOTICE: Weatherunderground has stated they are pulling their webcam feature. This post now serves for auto FTP uploads for whatever reason. That and timelapse. For those of you on 1.30.x who doubly use your DVR for both security, and posting an image up to Weatherunderground (all... 2 of you?) This ...

Re: Zoneminder server locking up.

I bumped my memory settings to 1GB. With all 8 analog cameras going at once, Zoneminder will lock up the computer. Running 5, I am okay. I honestly don't know what more to do.

Re: Zoneminder server locking up.

I recently did a re-format of my OS drive (well, got a new one since my second old drive failed) and installed Ubuntu 10.04.3 64bit server. So far so good. Seeing I have 8 cameras, I kept getting "Not enough ring memory" type errors. I increased the kernel.shmall & kenrel.shmax to 512MB each (I have...

Re: Zoneminder server locking up.

For the time being, I downgraded to 1.24.4. So far, no issues. Nothing else changed.

Re: Zoneminder server locking up.

Having the same issue here. ZM works for a few hours, then locks up. I was able to SSH into the computer right before it totally locked hard, and reported that the CPU was over 2.0 usage (on a dual core). Maybe there's a process somewhere that keeps stealing resources? I already bumped up the memory...

Re: Automatically Set States via Tasker for Android

It Works! I created a script called control.php in /var/www/zm with chmod 755 on it. <?php $output = shell_exec('/usr/local/bin/zmpkg.pl *YOUR RUN STATE NAME*'); ?> This successfully works with Tasker! Having it do an HTTP Post to the file with no data passed to it, makes it work. So, the next part ...

Re: NOOB with working ZM, now 2 house-keeping questions plea

Bear with me on this, but when you say, build 1.24.4 from source code , what exactly does that mean? I'm still learning & getting used to such lingo. :) It means that you are going to be taking the raw code that the programmer typed, and making the computer turn that code into the actual program. T...

Re: Triggereing an email from events

It may be your ISP. I had that issue on my box. Following the Postfix portion of the following guide (its at the bottom) worked for me. Basically, you'll pump your e-mails through your ISPs SMTP server. http://www.zoneminder.com/wiki/index.php/Ubuntu_Server_11.04_64-bit_with_ZoneMinder_1.25.0_Previe...

Re: NOOB with working ZM, now 2 house-keeping questions plea

As far as I know, there are no 1.24.2 packages (.deb files) in the repositories for Ubuntu. You will need to build 1.24.4 from source code. There are several Wiki pages here that explain how to do that.

Re: Automatically Set States via Tasker for Android

I got login via URL! Great for those with cell phones!
But it appears I can't chain it with the state change.

Re: Automatically Set States via Tasker for Android

The last bits work properly, however, they need root permission to run the zmpkg.pl. Not sure how to lock that bit down, let alone having Apache call the script from an HTTP Post.

Automatically Set States via Tasker for Android (WORKING!)

This is more of a request, and process post than anything. I am trying to make a setup that once my cell phone (Android) connects to my WiFi at my house, it will tell Zoneminder to switch off some of the cameras via changing the Runstate of Zoneminder. I have two profiles, one called "Away" and the ...
