Why ZM save data in 2 places?

Post by Lucas_Poland » Sat Nov 02, 2019 2:47 pm

Hello,
I have fresh install v1.32.3 and one camera Reolink RLC-210 5MP.
There are 2 folders where there are the same data:
/var/cache/zonemonder/events/1 - ???
/var/cache/zomeminder/420 - name of my camera

For what is folder called 1? It's backup?

There is only one directory, the other one is a symbolic link -- it means you can access the directory via the camera name, or the camera ID number.

It's normal, and isn't taking up any extra space.

e.g.

Code: Select all

drwxr-xr-x  4 apache apache 4096 Jan  1  2019 5/
lrwxrwxrwx  1 apache apache    1 Mar 25  2013 CAM01_FRONT_CZ -> 5/
First is the ID number, second is the name.
