Something is clearly wrong, since zm thinks the service is not started correctly, for which it tries to restart it over and over again.

It can be worked around, by removing the restart=always in the systemd file.
/lib/systemd/system/zoneminder.service

Code: Select all

#Restart=always
then
systemctl daemon-reload

Still needs to figure out, why the start/restart is not working properly.

Enabled debugging..

Code: Select all

 9 12:21:03 zoneminder zmpkg[29737]: DB1 [Testing "sudo -u www-data true"]
Jun  9 12:21:03 zoneminder zmpkg[29737]: DB1 [Test failed, 'No such file or directory'
So apperently sudo needs to be installed, so it can do its selfchecks.

fixed by installing the sudo package.
