    Unhappy Zoneminder upgrade - 1.26 to 1.32

    Unable to get images to show and various errors in the logs Here's the primary issue I'm guessing ... i have a zmdc.sock= in the /tmp/zm folder and that's it..

    I updated on an ubuntu 14.04 workstation, from 1.26 of ZM to 1.32. ... the install when fine... DB got updated with no issues. But had various config issues with apache that got sorted out when i re-enabled the cgi, write, and such.

    Any suggestions other than starting with a fresh install? Are the camera properties i used under 1.26 compatible with 1.32 as is?

    Have you verified that zoneminder is running as suggested in the output you posted?
    Have you checked that the PATH_ZMS is set correctly?
    You might want to do a new install of Ubuntu as 14.04 has not been supported since April of this year.

    Re: Zoneminder upgrade - 1.26 to 1.32

    Thanks! as it turns out, I did indeed install 16.04 of ubuntu ... however, I ended up right back where I was. I actually ended up removing ZM and totally reinstalling (dropping the database etc). As it turns out, the whole problem was the typical path issue. Unfortunately, EVERY REFERENCE I COULD FIND re: how to ensure that the script alias and PATH_ZMS variable was set correctly, referred to a console OPTIONS ==> PATH setting that is NO LONGER present on 1.32 of ZM. which brings up a curious problem as to how to ensure folks new to this level of support can possibly find the correct answers online without having to actually make a post. When the actual functionality of the product changes like this, and the old docs are still readily accessible.. it makes it difficult to keep from pulling out your hair. I was unable to figure this out until I actually SEARCHED GOOGLE for "ZONEMINDER MISSING PATH_ZMS" at which point, i found the handy site that explained as how these path variables are now in zmcustom.conf as noted here (if this is allowed https://forums.zoneminder.com/viewto...=27722#p108059

    Once I realized that the path variables are now in zmcustom.conf in /etc/zm/conf.d the world was a much better place, and immediately the camera i had defined started working. I simply had to insert "/zm" in front of the default setting there. Getting a few other cameras to work was very difficult due to odd FOSCAM HD camera settings, but I finally got there. We're back in business - though i do have to re map my zone on the motion detection camera.
