Re: Purge disk when full 50/80/95% ?

Is there a "normal" place where zoneminder really wants me to make these mount points? Quick answer - No However, the "mount points" need to be within the OS file system and have read write permission for www-data (Ubuntu/Debian based systems). For other distros the web server, Apache2, user need t...

Re: ZM kills my computer

You should not be using Zoneminder on a computer that you need for other things.
Also recommend to install Zoneminder on a "server" version of Linux without a GUI desktop.
Running the development version, 1.35.x, is not for the faint of heart or someone who doesn't have a working knowledge of Linux!

Re: Zoneminder-Master v-1.35.18 on Ubuntu Server 20.04 Install Failed with ERRORS

You may be better off using Mariadb vs. MySQL.
See: https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Ubuntu_Serv ... der_1.34.x
Yo can use "add-apt-repository ppa:iconnor/master" in place of "add-apt-repository ppa:iconnor/zoneminder-1.34"

Re: Images not deleted when using filter Purge when disk full

Older versions of Zoneminder ran zmaudit periodically to check and clean the database and stored events. While I have not done an update to an older running version of Zoneminder I do know that 1.35.x has RUN_AUDIT disabled by default. OPT_FAST_DELETE should be disabled. You can clean out the old ev...

Re: Stuck on Privacy Page after installation on Ubuntu

You should not have to log in on initial access to http://ipaddr/zm
Accept or reject the privacy option in the lower right corner and you should go to the Zoneminder Console. Configure from there and remember to set the timezone in Options/System/Timezone

Can't you enter those values manually?

Re: Unable to access 2nd HDD for storage

Your 2nd hard drive should be mounted in the Linux file system. The easy way I do that is to set up the mount for both hard drives when I install Linux. The first HD is mounted as "/" and the second hard drive is mounted as "/zmstore" It is possible to add the 2nd drive afterwards and here is one wa...

Re: Sudo Return Location

Preset what? Changing the function can be done with multiple run states controled by cron. If you mean preset direction of a PTZ cam that might be able to be done with the cam firmware. ZM is supposed to have a return location to move the cam back to after a preset time. Have never got that to work.

Re: Separate ZM server for viewing events

Sure it is possible but would be a lot of config and likely not real time as the events, images and database, would have to be copied over from time to time. You can give users specific permissions to view monitors and events but not change them. You can also set up a web page to view the monitors r...

As an alternate you may use MySQL in lieu of MySQL.
Should read: As an alternate you may use MySQL in lieu of Mariadb.

Re: Iso file available?

There have been some pre-packaged Ubuntu systems with Zoneminder. I had one with Lubuntu and ZM 1.30.? several years ago but it was deleted from my archives a while back. There is a prepackaged install for armhf, 32 bit Raspberry, on the zmrepo. You may just be out of luck. Sorry.

Re: NFS?

Sure, you can use a NFS mount. However, the drive on the remote device need s to have a "NIX" format (EXT or XFS). NTFS will not work. MAC might. That how-too is a bit aged but still should work with NFS. An easier way is to mount the NFS device in the ZM server file system then use Options/Storage ...

Re: Lots of Filesystem Writing

Check for /etc/apache2/conf-avaliable/zoneminder.conf
Should have been removed with apt remove zoneminder
Check the database server that zm database is gone
