Re: Web browser and backup

I get this error. I enabled opt_use_auth and maybe it causes it. mysqldump: got error: 1698: “access denied for user ‘zoneuser’@‘localhost’” when trying to connect I get the same if I use the username and password from /etc/zm/zm.conf, but the credentials in /etc/zm/conf.d/db-user.conf work.

Re: Web browser and backup

Is this really easiest way to backup db, just db not images etc? I'm not sure how to run this code. Maybe, but this will work... mysqldump -u zoneminder -p --opt zm > zoneminder_backup.sql Enter the zoneminder database user's password when prompted. To skip the prompt, such as for automated cron jo...

Re: H264 Pass through VS X264 Server Load

If you have values set for "Maximum FPS" and/or "Alarm Maximum FPS," try clearing them.

Re: H264 Pass through VS X264 Server Load

Surely decoding always happens anyway, passthrough or otherwise, so that the streams can be analysed for motion, etc.?

Decoding H264 is relatively cheap though - it's the encoding that's expensive, and passthrough avoids that step.

i did sudo chown -R 755 /media/3tb/zoneminder and restarted zoneminder and apache
Did you also try...

Code: Select all

sudo chmod 755 /media /media/3tb
It's the folders above zoneminder that need 755, not those under it, and I think the -R option works down from the specified folder, not up.

Re: Changing the port from 80

OK, it looks like ZM forces HTTPS after the initial connection, so you'll have to change the Listen port in /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf. Use a different port to the one in httpd.conf. You'll also have to edit the <VirtualHost> line in ssl.conf and change the port number there as well. <VirtualHost _d...

Re: Changing the port from 80

On a stock CentOS/Apache installation you can edit /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and change the line that says "Listen 80" to the port you want.

For SSL, edit /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf

Restart the httpd service after the change.

Re: Adding Storage Drive, Help Please

I did it the 'easy' way... Stop ZM Mount the new drive somewhere... mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/ Copy the existing data to the new drive... cp -pR /var/lib/zoneminder /mnt/ Mount the new folder over the old one... mount --bind /mnt/zoneminder /var/lib/zoneminder Restart ZM Make it all remount automatically...

Re: Storage Issues

Are the folders above the storage folder accessible to the ZM user as well as the Apache user?

Using the example from another post, if the storage is at '/data/zoneminder' then the folder /data/ would need permissions of rwxr-xr-x or 755.

Re: Help connecting ACTI KCM5211

Like this?

Source Type: Ffmpeg
Method: TCP
Source Path: rtsp://ip.add.re.ss:port

That works with my cheap Chinese cameras. Well close enough anyway - Mine need '/1/' or '/2/' added on the end to select the desired stream.
