Zoneminder 1.33.X Debian 9

Post by dabeast1973 » Sun Jun 09, 2019 1:27 pm

I currently have Zoneminder 1.30.4 installed on Debian 9 and was wondering what the easiest path would be in upgrading it to 1.33.X? I looked at Zoneminder Repo but you all seem to only support Fedora and Centos builds. Will you eventually add Debian to the mix? Thanks in advanced

I think there is a Debian package that is maintained. There is more info about it in this forum. I'll see if I can find more out and I'll post what I find

How would this work for an existing 1.30.4 installation running MariaDB? Does it upgrade automatically if I add the repository?

I have sudo.
I have Apache running and configured.
I have MariaDB running.
PHP is configured.
Zoneminder service is enabled.

Can I just?:

Code: Select all

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
adding
# ZoneMinder repository
deb https://zmrepo.zoneminder.com/debian/release stretch/

Code: Select all

sudo apt install apt-transport-https
wget -O - https://zmrepo.zoneminder.com/debian/archive-keyring.gpg | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt update
sudo apt install zoneminder

you may have to remove the installed zoneminder and then install the new one from zmrepo. We use a different versioning convention. I might be wrong though.

I havn't built a package for debian recently, but will do so now.

Thanks, I'm trying to avoid a complete reconfiguration.

You should be fine, just be ware that your apache config will need a new line or two.

Should I wait for the results of your build?

As a test I fired up a Debian 9 machine, updated it, installed Apache, Mariadb and PHP.

Added source:
# ZoneMinder repository
deb https://zmrepo.zoneminder.com/debian/release stretch/

Except for the Zoneminder source I followed the install instructions at: https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Debian_9_64 ... e_Easy_Way

Ended up with an operating Zoneminder 1.32.3 on my Pi 3 B+

Switching to the above source you should be able to upgrade with no issues.

Thank you for a near painless upgrade.

I did need to change all my cameras (4 reolink, 1 wansview) from remote to FFMPEG but that is what I was planning on doing anyway. System is stable, load is about the same, and I'm not getting errors from the RSTP wifi cameras the way I used to.

All I did was add the repository, get the key, and "sudo apt update" then "sudo apt upgrade".


Once again, I appreciate the effort and support of the developers. Thank you!

I essentially did what bbunge did to upgrade from 1.30.4 to 1.32.3.on two separate systems running 8+ cctv cameras each. So far so good. Thanks for all the advice.

Hi,
I was looking to test 1.33 beta release, but I didn't find any 1.33 package in the repository in the stretch branch, and/or no buster branch.
(deb https://zmrepo.zoneminder.com/debian/release stretch/ as mention in a previous post)

Is there any way to test beta release on debian (buster or stretch ?)

Thanks by advance,
Regards,
Benoit

Je reviens aux nouvelles concernant l'installation de la nouvelle version de ZM sur debian 9/10, un des développeurs m'informe qu'il lui est difficile de générer un package 100% fonctionnel sur cette distribution :cry: . Si j'ai du nouveau, je reviendrai ici :)
