Zoneminder 1.33.X Debian 9

I currently have Zoneminder 1.30.4 installed on Debian 9 and was wondering what the easiest path would be in upgrading it to 1.33.X? I looked at Zoneminder Repo but you all seem to only support Fedora and Centos builds. Will you eventually add Debian to the mix? Thanks in advanced

I think there is a Debian package that is maintained. There is more info about it in this forum. I'll see if I can find more out and I'll post what I find

How would this work for an existing 1.30.4 installation running MariaDB? Does it upgrade automatically if I add the repository?

I have sudo.
I have Apache running and configured.
I have MariaDB running.
PHP is configured.
Zoneminder service is enabled.

Can I just?:

Code: Select all

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
adding
# ZoneMinder repository
deb https://zmrepo.zoneminder.com/debian/release stretch/

Code: Select all

sudo apt install apt-transport-https
wget -O - https://zmrepo.zoneminder.com/debian/archive-keyring.gpg | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt update
sudo apt install zoneminder

you may have to remove the installed zoneminder and then install the new one from zmrepo. We use a different versioning convention. I might be wrong though.

I havn't built a package for debian recently, but will do so now.

Thanks, I'm trying to avoid a complete reconfiguration.

You should be fine, just be ware that your apache config will need a new line or two.

Should I wait for the results of your build?

As a test I fired up a Debian 9 machine, updated it, installed Apache, Mariadb and PHP.

Added source:
# ZoneMinder repository
deb https://zmrepo.zoneminder.com/debian/release stretch/

Except for the Zoneminder source I followed the install instructions at: https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Debian_9_64 ... e_Easy_Way

Ended up with an operating Zoneminder 1.32.3 on my Pi 3 B+

Switching to the above source you should be able to upgrade with no issues.

Thank you for a near painless upgrade.

I did need to change all my cameras (4 reolink, 1 wansview) from remote to FFMPEG but that is what I was planning on doing anyway. System is stable, load is about the same, and I'm not getting errors from the RSTP wifi cameras the way I used to.

All I did was add the repository, get the key, and "sudo apt update" then "sudo apt upgrade".


Once again, I appreciate the effort and support of the developers. Thank you!

I essentially did what bbunge did to upgrade from 1.30.4 to 1.32.3.on two separate systems running 8+ cctv cameras each. So far so good. Thanks for all the advice.

Hi,
I was looking to test 1.33 beta release, but I didn't find any 1.33 package in the repository in the stretch branch, and/or no buster branch.
(deb https://zmrepo.zoneminder.com/debian/release stretch/ as mention in a previous post)

Is there any way to test beta release on debian (buster or stretch ?)

Thanks by advance,
Regards,
Benoit
