dlandon's docker runs into mysql problems on fresh install

Post by SpikeyGG »

I've been trying to get switched over to dlandon's new docker hub repo (https://hub.docker.com/r/dlandon/zonemi ... e.learning) but I'm having a hell of a time. When I try to start from ground zero (I'm trying to build a fresh install) it fails with this:

Code: Select all

 * Starting Apache httpd web server apache2

   ...done.

Shouldn't the database creation happen automatically when the container is stood up? My command looks like this:

Code: Select all

docker run -d --name="zoneminder" --hostname="zoneminder" --net="bridge" --privileged="false" --shm-size="50G" -p 8080:80/tcp -p 9001:9000/tcp -e TZ="America/Boise" -e MULTI_PORT_START="0" -e MULTI_PORT_END="0" -v "/all_media/zm_data/config":"/config":rw -v "/all_media/zm_data/data":"/var/cache/zoneminder":rw dlandon/zoneminder.machine.learning
I did a NO_START_ZM="1" per the instructions to troubleshoot and it appears that the zm database doesn't exist in the mysql instance. I tried to create the database manually but got this error:

Code: Select all

MariaDB [(none)]> create database zm;
ERROR 1006 (HY000): Can't create database 'zm' (errno: 2 "No such file or directory")
MariaDB [(none)]>
Then I found this webpage that suggested clearing out `/var/lib/mysql` and restarting the service fixed it. I saw that inside the docker the `/var/lib/mysql` is a softlink that points to `/config/mysql` so I looked in there and there was a bunch of stuff including the 'zm' folder purportedly for the zm database and I thought maybe I'll just restart the mysql service and see what happens.

When I did that, I opened mysql again and looked at the list of DBs and zm was in there!! WTH? After that I did a `service zoneminder start` and everything is peachy! Maybe there just needs to be a `service mysql restart` as part of the dlandon docker to keep this from happening? I'm not sure how it gets into this funk but it's completely repeatable on my system.

I believe I got the same issue with the zoneminder.unraid docker image! I got this massive set of logs from the log output available through Unraid

Doing the same steps as you worked! Specifically, I shut-down the container and added the NO_START_ZM variable and restarted the container. Then I loaded up the console for the container (I am using Unraid, there's a button to do it) and performed service mysql restart after checking that there was a zm folder in that /var/lib/mysql directory and then loaded zoneminder with service zoneminder start and Zoneminder logged that it loaded successfully.

Thank you very much for this mate, it helped a lot!

Hello,
I keep having this issue. I delete and recreate the entire system and a couple of weeks later the same error.

When you say "I have applied a fix for this problem." what does that mean, is there something in particular that I need to do to get past this ?

I am trying to get this also to work and it crashes every single time. Ive asked many friends who all use UNRAID and they also cant get it to work. Ive tried to use the variable to stop it from booting and that never works.
