zmeventnotification.pl: connect: Connection refused

Post by Kilonga » Tue Jun 23, 2020 2:28 pm

Hi,

I have zoneminder working propertly and wanted to use zmNinja with it with notifications. I followed the instructions to install and configure zmeventnotification and when running it I get the following error and cannot find what is causing it:

Code: Select all

1. make sure multiple instances of the server are not running
2. To start with, don't run it as a daemon, run it manually
3. Enable debug logs for the ES so I get to see debug logs of what is happening when you run it (also make sure you are running it with -u www-data)

I made sure no other processes are running. No longer running it as daemon. I am still getting the same error. I ran it with -u www-data and logs enabled and this is what I get:

It seems mosquitto had crashed and it couldn't connect. I restarted it and it now seems to work (at least I don't get any more errors). How do I do a quick test to prove it is working?

Got it to work. It was missing a few python modules. So far I love ZoneMinder and zmNinja.
