Re: zmcontrol-3.sock error

I changed the name of the file when this script was installed.

I hope to upgrade to 1.34 ASAP. I hope it fixes this socket issue.

Re: API not working correctly

Is there anything occurring in syslog at the same time?

I have recently had to correlate between Apache logs and syslog and Zoneminder to figure out what's happening. If that doesnt help, I am pretty out of suggestions.

Re: Warning on camera selection

It's not just spiders. In fact, all manner of flying bugs are attracted to them here in the US South. Interesting, but not universal. I have several IR cams on one zoneminder setup in North Alabama, multiple on one in SE Tn, and multiple on one in N Fl, and none have had issues with spiders. You ne...

Re: API not working correctly

If you are running apache, I would look at the logs for errors there. I bet you have either some path issues (the webserver cannot get to the files) or else the permissions are not allowing it to read the files. On Debian-based systems, the logs should be in /var/log/apache2 There are access logs an...

Re: Edit login page for zoneminder?

Try

/usr/share/zoneminder/www/skins/classic/views/login.php

If you are using a different skin then "classic" in the above line may be something else.

Re: Amcrest PTZ functionality

Hey alabamatoy, can I assist you in getting this into ZoneMinder? Do you have plans to do so, or can I just grab the script and make a PR in your name? This code apparently never made it into the repo. My new 1.32.3 install has no amcrest control scripts. Oh well, I know yall got a lot going on.

Re: Storage question

I changed the storage location under each camera, and it worked. Thanks for pointing this out, I had not noticed the storage setting within each monitor. I have now changed all the monitors to point to the new storage area. I hope this eliminates some of the weird errors Im seeing in the log. One w...

Re: Storage question

I'll answer my own question, may be helpful to someone else. Apparently changing the values in OPTIONS/STORAGE has no effect on where storage is actually written/read. One must create and edit a .conf file in /etc/zm/conf.d as described here . This leads me to wonder what value the "storage" paged u...
