Debian 11 Bullseye with Zoneminder 1.36.x
Updated 11AUG21 for Debian 11
Debian 11 Bullseye is being released with Zoneminder 1.34.23 and as usual for Debian the zm database needs to be created manually. This is not user friendly and 1.34 is considered old and unsupported. So we will be using the packages provided by the ZoneMinder development team hosted at zmrepo.zoneminder.com.
Note: We currently only package for amd64 and armhf so if your are running something else this won't work.
Debian, unlike Ubuntu, does not install sudo with the initial setup. While you can log in as root, a user with sudo authority is recommended.
To enable sudo: In a terminal,become root with su. Enter your root password. Install sudo with:
apt install sudo
Add the user account to the group sudo with:
/sbin/adduser username sudo
where username is your user account. Exit root then log out and then log in with the same user.
Timezone: it is recommended you set your specific timesone with:
sudo timedatectl set-timezone America/New_York
Of course use your timezone in place of America/New_York.
1. Install Debian 11 (Bullseye), desktop or server version, along with Apache2, PHP and your favorite database (Mariadb recommended). A quick way to install LAMP this is:
sudo apt install apache2 mariadb-server php libapache2-mod-php php-mysql
2. echo "deb https://zmrepo.zoneminder.com/debian/master "`lsb_release -c -s`"/" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/zoneminder.list
3. wget -O - https://zmrepo.zoneminder.com/debian/archive-keyring.gpg | sudo apt-key add -
4. sudo apt-get update && sudo apt install zoneminder=1.36.11-bullseye1
6. Additional steps:
sudo systemctl enable zoneminder.service sudo systemctl start zoneminder sudo a2enconf zoneminder sudo a2enmod rewrite headers expires sudo service apache2 reload
9. Open Zoneminder http://(IP-Address)/zm and remember to change the Timezone in Options-Timezone
