I have just updated my Ubuntu 14.04.4 LTS, Zoneminder install from 1.28.1 to 1.29.0.
Everything went smoothly or so I thought, but the system is no longer recording to disc.
Looking at the Zoneminder logs I am just getting loads of errors like the following.
Everything was working and recording just fine before the update to 1.29.Can't symlink events/2/16/04/02/.15586 -> events/2/16/04/02/09/53/48: Permission denied
I have checked the folder ownership at /var/cache/zoneminder, this and all subfolders/files are owed by www-data:www-data
It seems that Zoneminder is creating the folders, but is not creating any files.
## EDIT ##
It seems that Zoneminder is only creating the camera id folder "2", then fails to make any additional folders.
The folder permissions don't look right to me, but then I can't remember what is was before the upgrade.# ls -l /var/cache/zoneminder/events
drw-r--r-- 2 www-data www-data 4096 Apr 2 10:15 2
lrwxrwxrwx 1 www-data www-data 1 Apr 2 09:53 Camera-2 -> 2
Thanks for your time.
