Debian 10 Buster with Zoneminder 1.33.x from the ZM Master Repro

This install procedure was developed to use the Debian package developed by iconnor. This is from the Master development version of Zoneminder 1.33.x but is a bit more stable than Zoneminder 1.32.x version and, in my opinion, works better and is kept up to date better than Zoneminder on Debian repros.

To begin, install Debian 10 (Buster) along with Apache2, PHP and your favorite database (Mariadb recommended). See:

Add the repro

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

Add the following line to the end of the file

deb buster/

CTRL+o then [Enter] to save

CTRL+x to exit

Install the following and retrieve the key from the repro

sudo apt install apt-transport-https gnupg
wget -O - | sudo apt-key add -

Important - Make sure the above "wget" process completes without error! If it does not complete you will not get the most recent Zoneminder version this procedure is written for.

sudo apt update

Install Zoneminder

sudo apt install zoneminder

Enable and start Zoneminder

sudo systemctl enable zoneminder.service
sudo systemctl start zoneminder 

Enable Apache Modules

sudo a2enconf zoneminder
sudo a2enmod rewrite
sudo a2enmod cgi 

Restart Apache

sudo service apache2 reload
