Attempted to reinstall 1.34 after installing 1.36

Post by Sean298 »

For some reason I wanted to upgrade to 1.36, I had no reason to, it broke things and has an interface I less prefer.

I don't know much about how all of this goes together, I tried my best to get everything deleted and get back to 1.34. I'm having issues with viewing events, they show errors in the log, I visited the link provided but I do not know how to go about fixing things so apache and zoneminder play nicely, I gather that is the problem.

In the beginning I simply installed via this link https://zoneminder.readthedocs.io/en/st ... -04-bionic after removing things, I just ran the apache and zoneminder commands, it worked, but with these errors when attempting to view events.

Thanks much for any assistance, the system has worked very well for us up until I decided to screw with it.

Code: Select all

If you are trying to view a live stream and the capture process (zmc) is not running then zms will exit.

You could try sudo apt remove zoneminder
Then sudo apt install zoneminder
That’s usually all it takes, at least it’s worked for me.
