Dependency issue with php-apcu-bc when installing zoneminder on 16.04.5

Post by pennyzm » Wed Oct 10, 2018 8:20 pm

Hello,

We are trying to install Zoneminder 1.32 on ubuntu 16.04.5.
Zoneminder will not install because php-apcu-bc is not installed. However, php-apcu-bc will not install.

We've followed the Zoneminder documentation:
- the ppa and the key has been added
- apache is on
- mysql is on
- we're updated to the latest on ubuntu 16.04.5

But we keep getting the message:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
zoneminder: Depends: php-apc but it is not installable or php-apcu-bc but it is not installable
Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages

What do we need to install php-apcu-bc and get zoneminder up and running?

Kind regards,
pennyzm

what I do is look for php-apcu-bc and the php-apcu for version 16.04 and install that. Make sure the modules are then enabled in PHP and to restart Apache.

Hi Connor and All,

I'm experiencing the same dependency issue, when I try adding iconnor/zoneminder I get this error:

> add-apt-repository ppa:iconnor/zoneminder
Cannot add PPA: 'ppa:~iconnor/ubuntu/zoneminder'.
The user named '~iconnor' has no PPA named 'ubuntu/zoneminder'
Please choose from the following available PPAs:
* 'zoneminder-1.32': ZoneMinder 1.32
* 'zoneminder-1.34': ZoneMinder 1.34
* 'zoneminder-1.36': ZoneMinder 1.36 The Memory Remains
* 'zoneminder-master': ZoneMinder Master Snapshots
* 'zoneminder-master-wsl': ZoneMinder Master for WSL

We are not going to continue supporting REALLY old versions of ZM. We are not paid to do it, and it is not a good idea.

So the /zoneminder ppa is gone.

Use one of the newer ones. /zoneminder-1.32 or /zoneminder-1.34 should work fine.
