Re: error opening events folder

@rockedge My initial suspicion was that it had something to do with the fact that clicking on the live view links from the ZM console makes ZM look for the poly files via the symlink rather than going to the monitor number, no matter whether you clicked the monitor number or the camera "nickname" on...

Re: error opening events folder

looking at my notes the issue seemed to be a time stamp problem. My problem was the time on the mysql/mariadb was different then the system, apache2 and PHP time. This is important because the paths for the events (export, video creation) are built using the time the event is originally alarmed. So...

Re: error opening events folder

The four drives in this system were created and formatted at the time of the OS install. They are part of the original system, and not add-ins. I haven't moved any databases, migrated any data, or moved anything since system install or since zoneminder install. The only "drive" that has been added s...

Re: error opening events folder

while experimenting running ZM with other operating systems I have run across this error occasionally. I think it was a path and permissions problem. Somehow this was related to an event Export function failure where ZM could not write to the /var/cache/zoneminder/temp folder. Corrupting the path c...

Re: error opening events folder

Also, clicking on the "zone ID" number instead of the zone name gives the same error. It's almost as if ZoneMinder is hardcoded to use the symlink instead of going direct to the numbered zone. This *might* be the cause of the errors. This is on v1.30.4, by the way. As the OP posted this question in ...

Re: error opening events folder

Also: using Chromium-browser on Ubuntu, and those cache/connection settings don't apply to my setup.

Re: error opening events folder

Again... Let me make this clear... I. DO. NOT. HAVE. AN. EXTERNAL. DRIVE. These errors are occurring on the internal drive(s) in the machine. All the drives are formatted EXT4. The errors in question seems to be Zoneminder not being able to find a file that actually does exist, and it is attempting ...

Re: error opening events folder

Interestingly, the events folder that it's attempting to go through is a symlink... as per this: drwxr-xr-x 8 www-data www-data 4096 Jan 11 14:54 . drwxr-xr-x 5 www-data www-data 4096 Dec 22 17:27 .. drwxr-xr-x 4 www-data www-data 4096 Jan 1 14:12 1 drwxr-xr-x 4 www-data www-data 4096 Jan 1 00:30 2 ...

Re: error opening events folder

I installed using those instructions, followed them to the letter. Permissions were also set in /usr/share/zoneminder per both the instructions and your suggestion above. No effect; the error still appears when a monitor's stream is viewed. /var/cache/zoneminder (subdirectories of which contain the ...

Re: error opening events folder

Furthermore, changing PATH_SWAP did nothing to fix the issue.
Any other suggestions, please?

Re: error opening events folder

My log is filled with zmu and zms err messages saying: "Can't open events/monitor-3/diag-0-poly.jpg: no such file..." But ZM is writing to it and saving events. I see live video and can see stored events. I followed the instructions for moving the events and images folders to an external hard drive...
