How to Install ZoneMinder-Master on UBUNTU 20.04 LTS (Focal Fossa)

Please note that master refers to the current development version of ZoneMinder. It may break at any time.

We first install MySQL/MariaDB so that the ZoneMinder database will be auto-created. sudo apt install mariadb-server

or

sudo apt install mysql-server

Now we add iconnor's ZoneMinder PPA:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:iconnor/zoneminder-master


sudo apt update


apt install zoneminder


Creating zm sql data base

The ZM database should have been automatically created for you. If for some reason it wasn't, the following line should do it.

mysql -uroot -p < /usr/share/zoneminder/db/zm_create.sql

The ZM user should been automatically created for you. If it wasn't, the following should do it: mysql -u root -p


CREATE USER 'zmuser'@localhost IDENTIFIED BY 'zmpass';


(If CREATE does not work try with ALTER)


GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON zm.* TO 'zmuser'@'localhost' WITH GRANT OPTION;


FLUSH PRIVILEGES ;


quit


mysqladmin -uroot -p reload


(Note:- Here use the 'yourpassword' created for 'root'@'localhost' earlier )


Configuring Zoneminder


chmod 740 /etc/zm/zm.conf


chown root:www-data /etc/zm/zm.conf


adduser www-data video


a2enmod cgi


a2enconf zoneminder


a2enmod rewrite


a2enmod headers


a2enmod expires


Starting Zoneminder and apache


systemctl enable zoneminder


service zoneminder start


service apache2 reload


Open zoneminder web console (http://localhost/zm/)
