Re: Zoneminder not starting

I don't have a back up of the DB. It was dropped when I uninstalled ZM the first time. It sounds like things are a mess, so moving forward, what is the best way to wipe out ZM so I can start fresh? I used dpkg -r zoneminder and dpkg --purge zoneminder but I'm not sure that's enough. I also don't wan...

Re: Zoneminder not starting

What do you mean by: Then add the old db back into mysql/mariadb and # zmupdate.pl to get the db to 1.34? Yes I added the external repo. /etc/apt/sources.list # deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 10.0.0 _Buster_ - Official amd64 DVD Binary-1 20190706-10:24]/ buster contrib main deb http://deb.debian.org/de...

Re: Zoneminder not starting

I've followed the steps in the wiki but I only get version 1.32.3 which is what I was running before. The whole problem is it won't upgrade. This is what I get when I click the version number in the console.

You are running the most recent version of ZoneMinder, v1.32.3.

No update is necessary.

Re: Zoneminder not starting

I typed the commands you suggested and now the console comes up, but the version says 1.32.3 and I'm getting errors when trying to stream from a camera. How can I upgrade to the latest version so I can start with a clean slate? I don't mind reinstalling everything, but I don't want to wipe out Maria...

Re: Zoneminder not starting

My ZM database had been deleted so I removed ZM again and did an install from the 1.34 deb file. It looks like the database wasn't created. -- The job identifier is 71167.

Re: Zoneminder not starting

I initially tried updating but it didn't work. So I uninstalled ZM and tried to do a fresh install per the wiki and the result is what I posted.

Re: Zoneminder not starting

I thought the database was created during the install process. How do I recreate it?

Zoneminder not starting

I was running ZM 1.32 on Debian 10 and everything was working fine. I then tried to upgrade to 1.34 and it said I was already running the latest version. So I removed ZM so I could do a fresh install. Now I get the following error when starting the zoneminder.service. Any suggestions? zoneminder.ser...

Re: Only recording current day

I found the problem. I had to change the storage setting for each camera under the General tab to my dedicated hard drive. I thought just changing it under the options/storage tab would be enough.

Alarm Frames Not Working

I had to reinstall zm 1.32.3 on Deb 10. I followed the steps from the wiki for adding a dedicated hard drive but nothing is being recorded unless I force an alarm. The web console shows capturing and all camera's are set to mocord.
Thanks for any help

Re: ZoneMinder filling my boot drive

Another program was saving files to my boot drive, so I fixed that problem and now have plenty of space. So now I just need to know how to fix this error: Unable to connect to ZM db.SQLSTATE[HY000] [2002] No such file or directory.
Thanks

Re: Classic Skin/Storage

Everything seems to be working fine now except the Classic Skin. Changing those settings still has no effect.
