ZoneMinder (1.32.2) on Slackware 15

Post by timcowchip »

https://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.2 ... oneMinder/ with documentation here> https://slackbuilds.org/slackbuilds/14. ... .SLACKWARE

Though it was packaged for Slackware 14.2 it builds and runs on the latest version. I was getting Apache errors at first when I tried going to http://localhost/zm/. Then I completed web address to include index.php. http://localhost/zm/index.php and was looking at the zm console.

The problem now is I can only add one camera and view it. All subsequent cameras that I add, won't connect. I believe it shouldn't be necessary to use the complete http://localhost/zm/index.php address to open the zm console in a browser and that has something to do with my not being able to add more than one viewable camera. I should get the zm console when pointing my browser at http://localhost/zm/

The apache config seems to be missing a bit:
https://www.slackbuilds.org/slackbuilds ... pache.conf

Compare that to Debian 1.34.
fastest way to test streams:
ffmpeg -i rtsp://<user>:<pass>@<ipaddress>:554/path ./output.mp4
in terminal, and find paths on ispydb or in zm hcl

"DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.pl index.php" added to /etc/httpd/httpd.conf and localhost/zm/ gives me the zm console

Reinstalled and reconfigured mariadb and ZoneMinder works as advertised. \0/

Hi, can you share the slackbuild ? I have the slackbuild for 1.36.x series, but I have troubles with the apache configuration.
From some time ago it does not work as expected. Seems its missing some symlinks.
