/etc/zm/secrets.ini is missing

Just installed zoneminder with all prereqs etc and everything works great. Decided to give zmeventnotification a try and when starting it looks for "/etc/zm/secrets.ini" which I don't even have.
Tried searching for ZM docs / wiki and there is nothing on that file. I do have /etc/zm/ dir:

Code: Select all

tree /etc/zm/
├── conf.d
│   ├── 01-system-paths.conf
│   ├── 02-multiserver.conf
│   └── README
└── zm.conf
Any ideas?

Thank you!

You need to follow the ES install guide at
If you used to install, it would copy a sample secrets.ini file

Got it! Thank you!

Btw, I was following that guide but the "Making sure everything is running (in manual mode)" is before the running the part so it's a bit confusing because would actually copy that file.

All good now, thanx again!
