Re: Server OS Upgrade Performance hit (Ubuntu 18.04)

Good one! I should have thought of that, I remember when we patched Spectre at work and seeing up to 15% performance hits, but those are proper enterprise servers, not my flogged out consumer level already high I/O ZM server - credit though it's run for about 6 years 24/7 smashing camera feeds witho...

Server OS Upgrade Performance hit (Ubuntu 18.04)

Hi Folks, I spent the weekend upgrading Ubuntu 17.04 now quite long out of support to 18.04 LTS. To give myself time and ease of rollback, I grabbed a new SSD and started fresh knowing I can plug in the former build and get the server is back online. So I followed the wiki https://wiki.zoneminder.co...

Re: Can't view stream over the web

Just to thank you again, now all is working 100% - Quick update on the last ironing out of kinks in case someone else does the same stupid thing I did quite by accident. FIX Once I removed the servers and checked the server table was empty I was getting errors in the log: Unable to load Server recor...

Re: Can't view stream over the web

Aha, thanks! As mentioned I'd changed over from my old build, which was years old and had many ZM upgrades starting at maybe 1.23 or 4... Being a lazy sod and figuring I'm going from 1.30 to 1.30: I migrated the database + all the settings in which the server had been set on the old build (less even...

Re: Can't view stream over the web

Thanks for getting back to me. I've tried a bunch of tests, I noticed it didn't work on iPhone, so tried Chrome and firefox on my lappy. Firefox has the browser fixes already as I'm a long time ZM user. Ran my laptop with a 4G wireless connection. It's not a Http or Https issue as I forwarded both s...

Can't view stream over the web [SOLVED]

Hi, I recently decided to switch my older Centos 6.7 for a new Ubuntu 16.04 build, ZM 1.30 iconnor/zoneminder repo installed without a hitch, or at least I thought. Fairly certain this is an apache setup issue, but I can't pin it down. I have montage view working inside my own LAN but via the web it...

Re: Upgrade fail on CentOS 6.8 1.29 - 1.30

Excellent works a perfect now. Had to flip the resolution settings on a few 720p cams which I'd previously rotated left or right. I see the resolution height and width are now rotated automatically, fixed the corresponding zones. Looks to have a good performance improvement too, load levels are down...

Re: Very long duration events

Not a config item I've seen before, updated to 4 as no events in the last month have more than 4500 frames.

No ill effects after a restart, will monitor ongoing.

Thanks for the tip!

Re: How To import new PTZ control script info to an existing

After a bit of mucking around I got this to work. Checking the bundled FI8908W.pm it takes a different string for the Control Device: user and password, in this case delimited by a colon : rather than an ampersand in my existing script... I've started work on re-writing my FI8910W script using lesso...
