Thanks for the feedback.
I've read through a few references to this issue, but the strange thing is that I can't reproduce it on my 64bit CentOS production server nor on my development virtual machine. zmfilter appears to be working fine and there are no zmfilter errors in any of the log files.

What version of perl is on your system?
Are you using the version from the base repo?
Hi! Sorry for the huge delay in my answer but i was waiting for an email telling me there was a reply in this thread..
haha

well, answering your question yes i am using perl from centos base repo, here is my output if helps:
perl -v

This is perl, v5.10.1 (*) built for x86_64-linux-thread-multi

Hello:

Just installed zoneminder in CentOS 6.5 following this topic instructions and everything went just fine.

The service can be started in the console and no error messages are displayed.

When I open the web interface and click "stopped" in order to start, I get the following error msgs in the logs:

2013-12-25 14:42:56.576560 zmpkg 12065 ERR Unable to run "/usr/bin/zmdc.pl startup", output is "Starting server" zmpkg.pl
2013-12-25 14:42:56.557590 zmdc 12074 FAT Can't connect: Permission denied zmdc.pl
2013-12-25 14:42:48.645770 zmdc 12076 FAT Can't bind: Address already in use zmdc.pl

Any ideas?

Thanks a lot.

Just found out. Disabling SELINUX has solved it.

From another thread, you stated that that you are running Zoneminder 1.25. Try upgrading to the latest 1.26.5 RPM at the beginning of this thread. You should not experience any selinux or zmfilter issues with these.

No, I'm sorry. If I stated that, I've mistyped it. I'm running the latest 1.26.5, the one kindly provided in this thread via rpm package.

* BUMP *
Special bugfix release of perl-sys-mmap has been added under Prerequisites. This fixes an issue with zmtrigger and the x10 module.

Just did a zoneminder 1.26.5 install on Centos6, and had the exact same issue. Web interface reports the service stopped even though "service zoneminder status" shows running. Disabling selinux does allow the web interface to connect correctly.

I'll attempt to sort the selinux issues and report back here if I discover anything helpful.

Please provide the relevant AVC messages from your system log files.

Edit: Here is the link to the full logs:

pastebin jX3BR1tf

Leaving out a bunch of the repeated messages, but here are the relevant.

When restarting the service and attempting to use the web interface, I see these lines:

Excellent. I will integrate that into the existing local security policy and have it ready for the 1.27 release:

* BUMP *
ZoneMinder 1.27 Release Candidate RPMs are available for download now.
The repository configuration has changed so it is very important for existing users to follow the new instructions.

Gonna try to get the 1.27 installed today or tomorrow after work. I really should do a fresh clean install first though. I've done enough jiggery-pokery on the system that it most likely has a good amount of kruft hanging around.

One question: I use predominantly Scientific Linux at work so I've been using it at home as well just for consistency. It also helps with updates for my systems since a lot of packages end up in squid, so they don't get downloaded for all my systems, just the first one. I can't think of any reason that using your CentOS instructions should have any problems on an SL 6.5 system. Can you?

If SL 6.5 maintains a binary equivalence to RedHat like CentOS does then I would not expect any problems. On the other hand, I've never used SL 6.5.
