Okay, I see. Given you now know that with ZM set to remote authentication your HTTP authentication credentials get sent right through you might as well use HTTP AUTH for WAN and LAN access now? It'd certainly minimise the potential for future 'gotchas' to creep in which give rise to problems only af...

We're all guilty of that!! :)

Is your LAN-access working fine now also? I'm intrigued as to why your LAN clients weren't being requiring authentication yet WAN clients were. That is certainly an Apache configuration issue. Or is that now sorted?

Re: WAN/internet access to ZM 1.22.3 monitors page (CentOS)

I get the Apache/HTTP logon prompt (as expected as authorisation is defined in the httpd.conf) and I enter that Apache username/password combination fine: this takes me to the expected ZoneMinder user account logon screen. Is this how you wanted/expected it to work? As you're using HTTP AUTH you ca...

I agree it's far from being an urgent requirement.

An easy workaround if it bothers anyone is of course to simply change the default path/file-names or, with a bit more effort, use http auth (which can easily be applied to the entire tree).

Thanks Phil. Sigh... It is exactly what I'm after. And it does of course allow streaming if required (just not by default). Here's me thinking I'd thought of a novel idea/change! (give me time, I'll find something! ;)) And to think I started modifying the php code to change the behaviour (by specify...

Possible to set the default live monitor view to 'stills'?

Sorry if I've overlooked a config setting on this one... I'm wondering if it is possible to set the default 'live monitor view' to show in stills mode (auto-refreshing as per the bandwidth settings) by default as opposed to live streaming? I would like to do this given that a) my upload bandwidth is...

Try disabling ZM_OPT_FRAME_SERVER in Options > System (something JamesWilson suggested to another user so credit to him if it works!).

Remember to keep restarting the server when making changes - whilst not necessary for all cases I find it's a safe measure just in case.

You really ought to be quoting logs all from the same time period - mixing and matching from different times (and days!) is only going to cause confusion.

What is the current situation? What is/isn't working? And what are your logs currently saying?

you might want to leave the options indexes out tho once you are happy its all working, this would stop any one accsing ZM webpage from viewing the events folder Unless they know the full path, which if you haven't changed the default settings is not too difficult to derive (e.g. /events/1/4/001-ca...

Click on Stopped and you'll get a popup where you can start it up.

The shared memory problems can often persist if you don't stop/start ZM - that could be why that particular error hung around. Have no idea about the SQL problem though.

That's great - many thanks for the speedy follow-up. I hear what you're saying re the lack of ZM_PATH_BUILD - I didn't realise at the time but I guess it makes sense that on a packaged build it would have all the necessary files to hand that I had (temporarily) in /usr/local/src. Given they've now g...

I've just ran these scripts on my Ubuntu installation however hit a slight snag which I circumvented, but would appreciate some clarification as to a) what a particular line is doing, and b) whether my 'fix' was correct (it seemed to do the job!). The line in question is the following from zm_db_res...

Thanks Peter for the update.

I'm quite comfortable manuall installing (although only by following the Wiki!) but it would still be nice to have a packaged version if only to simplify updates as per the rest of my machine.

Cheers,

Thanks for that James - most helpful. I'm glad it is percentages of the zone as I'm finding it much easier to work in percentages when visualising a particular zone, particularly as I'm likely to require settings sufficient to ignore my cats. And I've never measured my cat in pixels.... ;) The secon...

The zone is calculated to consist of a number of pixels. The percentage relates to THIS number of pixels (Not of the whole image). So if you had a zone that covered 5% of a 320x240 image, then that zone would be 3840 pixels in size. If you set your min alarm pixel threshold to 8%, then you would ne...
