Use 20.04.

Only install on distributions from these guides if you want it to work without advanced knowledge.

Re: Server required for 24 IP cameras registration

Small X86 boards are only good for a few cameras.

Why don't you install ZM and see how it performs? It's free software. Try a core duo. $50 online, or at your local recycler.

I don't recommend multiserver unless you know what you are doing.

Re: How Do I Delete Over 2M Log Events

IIRC ZM will handle logs automatically with default settings. It's hands off. It doesn't ever need maintenance. There's no requirement to truncate transaction logs or any of that nonsense. If for some reason, you had the logs fill up, you could manually truncate them, but for most people it isn't ne...

Re: Events records disappeared

Are you sure you removed the DB? Just uninstall ZM via apt-get might not remove the DB. Regardless, you didn't specify which installation guide you followed. A common problem is that users did not install correctly or used an unsupported OS (for some reason, lots of folks want to use proprietary unr...

Re: Video Record lengths

If the CPU is maxed out, it's possible to get recordings of short lengths (e.g. w/RPI, and or high res/FPS cameras) as zm can't keep up.

In that case, it's managed by lowering FPS / res.

Re: Events records disappeared

Ok, it looks like the query is failing. Have you tried any more troubleshooting to track down why that query failed?

Does the ZM db and the table its referencing exist per the query? https://wiki.zoneminder.com/MySQL Recreate db if necessary. Upgrade it if necessary.

Re: Events records disappeared

Events are handled by db, and on filesystem. If events are not on the filesystem (say you have incorrect hdd permissions) then they will not be accessible, but may show up in db. If events are not on db, but are on filesystem it could be a db issue. Check logs. Any events that are not found on the f...

Re: Axis M3065-V

It's very likely that ZM will work with it. Axis typically have MJPEG and RTSP streams, so if one doesn't work (although they both probably will), you can use the other. But, to be 100% sure, you'll have to buy one. See: https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Hardware_Compatibility_List https://wiki.zoneminder...

Re: Is there an explanation of the filter conditions?

I am setting up some filters, and I believe there is no documentation regarding how to use many of the non-obvious conditions. For example, "Disk Space". This is the one I want to use - my use case is that I have a 6TB hard disk, but I only want Zoneminder to occupy 1TB of it. So, I would like some...

Re: Pi3Plus with Buster, ADD source broken

It seems to me there should be more logs than that. Either a different file (apache access log), but maybe I'm wrong. The posters here tend to cherry pick logs, and leave out important stuff.

We could try to troubleshoot it by reviewing the settings for ZM.
