Power failure: Zoneminder won't start

Post by codeking2011 » Fri May 10, 2013 2:54 pm

Hello all,

We had a power failure and the ZoneMinder server was improperly shut down. After I have restarted it again I got the following error: -

#service zm status
httpd (pid 1858 1857 1856 1855 1854 1853 1852 1851 1850 1833) is running...
mysqld (pid 1719) is running...
DBD::mysql::st execute failed: Table './zm/Logs' is marked as crashed and should be repaired at /usr/local/share/perl5/ZoneMinder/Logger.pm line 609.

While I tried to http the server I got another error: -

Can't write log entry 'insert into Logs ( TimeKey, Component, Pid, Level, Code, Message, File, Line ) values ( 1368195917.303554, 'web_php', 1856, -3, 'FAT', 'SQL-ERR \'Table \'./zm/Logs\' is marked as crashed and should be repaired\', statement was \'select Level, count(Level) as LevelCount from Logs where Level < 0 and from_unixtime(TimeKey) + interval 900 second > now() group by Level order by Level asc\'', '/home/www/html/zm/includes/database.php', 78 )': Table './zm/Logs' is marked as crashed and should be repaired

How can I repair this issue??
Any advice/help would be appreciated
Thanks

Because Internet is magic, and because life shall never be easy ... the indicated page is dropped. And of course, no proper redirection have been set.

But, let's dig using spells ...

https://web.archive.org/web/20140320151 ... ex.php/FAQ

(well, the page redirects to http://zoneminder.readthedocs.io/en/latest/faq.html ... which contains invalid commands; so, it's useless)

It states:
How do I repair the MySQL Database?

There is two ways to go about this. In most cases you can run from the command prompt ->

mysqlcheck --all-databases --auto-repair -pyour_database_password -u your_databse_user

If that does not work then you will have to make sure that ZoneMinder is stopped then run the following (nothing should be using the database while running this and you will have to adjust for your correct path if it is different). ->

myisamchk --silent --force --fast --update-state -O key_buffer=64M -O sort_buffer=64M -O read_buffer=1M -O write_buffer=1M /var/lib/mysql/*/*.MYI


How do I repair the MySQL Database when the cli fails?

In Ubuntu, the commands listed above do not seem to work. However, actually doing it by hand from within MySQL does. (But that is beyond the scope of this document) But that got me thinking... And phpmyadmin does work. Bring up a terminal.

sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin

Now go to http://zoneminder_IP/ and stop the ZM service. Continue to http://zoneminder_IP/phpmyadmin and select the zoneminder database. Select and tables marked 'in use' and pick the action 'repare' to fix. Restart the zoneminder service from the web browser. Remove or disable the phpmyadmin tool, as it is not always the most secure thing around, and opens your database wide to any skilled hacker.

sudo apt-get remove phpmyadmin
Here is what it becomes for me:

Code: Select all

# cat /etc/zm/zm.conf | grep ZM_DB
ZM_DB_TYPE=mysql
ZM_DB_HOST=localhost
ZM_DB_NAME=zm
ZM_DB_USER=zmuser
ZM_DB_PASS=zmpass

# mysqlcheck --all-databases --auto-repair -pzmpass -u zmuser

myisamchk: unknown option '-O'

(the new tuto is missing stars in the last argument).

In the end, I am stuck.

If the only way is to reset mysql completely, and loose all events and all configuration every 3 months, I really prefer using any other more expensive solution. I have spend dozens (hundreds ?) of hours trying to make ZM work. Author refuses to listen to the fact it has bugs, and all bugs have been closed within MINUTES WITHOUT FIX. He is just too proud to accept he is not god, and he may make typos.

But, having to reset the main DBs, and loose events, and monitors and zones ... that's too much for me. I will buy a high brand hardware recorder.

FYI Mysql crashed tables is not a Zoneminder issue, can happen to any mysql database in sudden power loss.

Your tables are using innodb not myisam. If you search "mysql innodb table crash" you will find answers. I think I lost a Logs table and it was easier to just dump and recreate it. As I didn't have backups in place at the time and I will assume you are in the same boat.
Maybe something in this will assist you.
