HELP - recent ubuntu update uninstalled zoneminder

Post by barrydocks » Fri Sep 24, 2010 8:01 pm

just ran an update on ubuntu 8.04 LTS and the apache update has uninstalled zoneminder and dropped the mysql databaser. What is worse is I can't get apche to run after the reinstall Here are the errors:

Code: Select all

root@Fileserver:~# apache2ctl restart
Syntax error on line 4 of /etc/apache2/conf.d/zoneminder:
Invalid command 'php_flag', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration
Also there is no zm directory in the www directory anymore!

Thanks :cry:

End-Date: 2010-09-25  20:05:55
After this I've tried to reinstall zoneminder with apt-get:

Code: Select all

There shouldn't be.. at least with 1.24..
