Thanks, running that command gave me a huge amount of errors.
Ended up purging php* and libapache2, and reinstalling both. Now it works.

Thanks for your time!

Update:

after a few minutes ZM stopped working. I cant start the service via console NOR web.
The website shows me that ZM is stopped, via console:

Code: Select all

root@dvr:/home/kamera# service zoneminder start
Job for zoneminder.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status zoneminder.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

Looks like you need to start over...again

https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Ubuntu_Serv ... e_easy_way

Follow the instructions to the letter! Make sure you install the server version of Ubuntu 16.04 and include LAMP (from tasksel) which will get Apache, PHP and MySQL set up and running from the start. About the only choice you have to make is to use MySQL or Mariadb and I've covered the steps for both. If you get to the end and can't see the Zonemnder web page you did not follow the instructions. Setting up the cameras could give you problems but remember Google is your friend...

It looks like permissions issue - check that /tmp/zm is owned by www-data.

Reinstalled again and it works. It looks like I missed something.
Even the cameras work ;)

Will these install instructions work with 16.04 desktop version?

Hi Philip,

Try this :
nano /etc/php/7.0/apache2/php.ini
Search for [Date] (Ctrl + w then type Date and press Enter) and make changes as follows for your time zone. Be sure to remove the ; before date.timezone

[Date]
; Defines the default timezone used by the date functions
; http://php.net/date.timezone
date.timezone = America/New_York
Ctrl+o Enter to save

CTRL+x to exit
