Re: Date Format differs

So, even if we have to edit after every update, is there a way to get the Date string in the various views to be Day/Month/Year? Changing the definition of STRF_FMT_DATETIME_SHORTER in /usr/share/zoneminder/www/includes/lang.php from '%m/%d %H:%M:%S' to '%d/%m %H:%M:%S' worked to give me DD/MM inst...

Re: Error starting Mysql after power outage

That looks better :) But it doesn't look good :( Subtracting the the 673GB on /mnt from the 699GB total leaves only about 26GB used, and as that's nowhere near the supposed 196GB capacity of that volume I'm going to suggest that there's some sort of file system error and that you need to run fsck on...

Re: Error starting Mysql after power outage

So how to fix it? Wait until it completes and the command prompt reappears. It looks like /mnt would be next and you have a large drive with a lot of data mounted there (/dev/sda1 2.7T 673G 1.9T 26% /mnt/83f83fe3-4044-493f-aa74-ed86345d5d9c) which may take a while to calculate. If it stops by itsel...

Re: Error starting Mysql after power outage

The video storage should be on the LVM Array, as its I think three disks, the root file system for the OS should be on its own SSD for speed... ifI recall how I set it up correctly... The LVM is about 3TB or so... specifically for storing the video files from ZM... joe@camera:~$ sudo du -shc /* [su...

Re: Error starting Mysql after power outage

how did / get to 95%? You could try the du command to find out what's using the space: sudo du -shc /* You can then drill down by extending the path to be examined, such as du -shc /var/* You'll probably get a bunch of "cannot access..." error messages but I tend to ignore those as they'r...

Re: API not working after install on fresh Buster system

Make sure that overrides are enabled in the httpd/Apache config file - They aren't by default in my copy here on CentOS. Make a backup of the current conf: cp -p /etc/zm/www/zoneminder.conf /etc/zm/www/zoneminder.conf~ Open the original in a text editor and look for this block: Alias /zm "/usr/...

Re: Recover bricked ANPVIZ IPC-D250W-S camera

Yeah, very weird. But what if you did reset it it? Or what if it reset itself somehow? I'd try the search tool linked above to see if that can find it. I'm kind of under the impression that these tools use MACs rather than IP addresses so that they'll work even if there's a network/mask mismatch. If...

I think you may be right about the PTZ option - This looks like a motorised-zoom version so there might be others: https://anpvizsecurity.com/https-wwwamazoncom-dp-b07n3y4hs6-p00473p1.html The manual for that model is here: https://anpvizsecurity.com/?do_action=action.products_download&Path=2&am...

If you have mysql/mariadb installed then you could try: - Stopping zm and mysql/mariadb systemctl stop zoneminder systemctl stop mysqld systemctl stop mariadb - Renaming or moving the folder /var/lib/mysql to keep it safe mv /var/lib/mysql /var/lib/mysql.bak - Copying the old /var/lib/mysql folder o...

Re: VAAPI HW Encoding and Storage issues

I had a similar problem after one of the upgrades a little while ago (although not VAAPI related) and it was caused by some of the option parameters changing with use of libx264. The alternative syntax can be found here: https://ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg-codecs.html#Options-31 I also had to remove the #comm...

Re: noob: recording on raspberry

I don't know how things are set up there but you'll probably want to set the Video Writer to Camera Passthrough to avoid decoding/encoding the video stream and use a separate low-resolution stream for any detection or analysis, triggering a higher-resolution stream to record any events. Also check t...
