20210528 - a Slackware upgrade causes the page rendering to fail. Apologies and I am looking for the cause.

Welcome to the Slackware Documentation Project


ZoneMinder is an opensource monitoring tool.



ZoneMinder is available at SBo.

ONVIF cameras

If you want to use ONVIF cameras

  • Install perl-Data-UUID (from Slackbuilds)
  • Install other Perl modules via CPan:
# perl -MCPAN -e 'install Class::Std::Fast, Data::Dump, SOAP::WSDL::Transport::HTTP, IO::Socket::Multicast'


# mysql -u root -p < /usr/share/zoneminder/db/zm_create.sql 
# mysql -u root -p 
      grant select,insert,update,delete,lock tables,alter,create on zm.* to 'zmuser'@localhost identified by 'zmpass'; #NOTE: zmuser and zmpass is found in /etc/zm.conf
      select User,Host from mysql.user;  #Check and make zmuser was created

The SELECT command (above) should reply:

  MariaDB [(none)]> select User,Host from mysql.user;
  | User   | Host       |
  | root   |  |
  | root   | ::1        |
  |        | localhost  |
  | root   | localhost  |
  | zmuser | localhost  |
  |        | zoneminder |
  | root   | zoneminder |

Web server

Change America/Chicago to your correct timezone.

# sed -i 's|#Include /etc/httpd/mod_php.conf|Include /etc/httpd/mod_php.conf|' /etc/httpd/httpd.conf
# sed -i 's|DirectoryIndex index.html|DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.pl index.php|' /etc/httpd/httpd.conf
# sed -i 's|;date.timezone =|date.timezone = America/Chicago|' /etc/php.ini

Then Add “Include /etc/httpd/extra/zm.conf” to httpd.conf

# sed -i '|Include /etc/httpd/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf|a Include /etc/httpd/extra/zm.conf' /etc/httpd/httpd.conf


# chmod 755 /etc/rc.d/rc.httpd; /etc/rc.d/rc.httpd start
# chmod 755 /etc/rc.d/rc.zm; /etc/rc.d/rc.zm start

Installation should be complete, open a web browser and go to:
