  1. I am really sorry. I was able to follow the instructions and received this when I tried to start ZM root@Tower:~# docker exec -it Zoneminder /bin/bash root@ef02f6c53378:/# service mysql start * Starting MariaDB database server mysqld [fail] root@ef02f6c53378:/# service zoneminder start Starting ZoneMinder: DBI connect('database=zm;host=localhost','zmuser',...) failed: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2) at /usr/share/perl5/ZoneMinder/Database.pm line 110.

  2. Hello, I keep having the same issue with the SQL database. I have deleted everything and started over from scratch 3 times and each time after a week of so Zoneminder fails to load and I get these warnings. DBI connect('database=zm;host=localhost','zmuser',...) failed: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (111) at /usr/share/perl5/ZoneMinder/Database.pm line 110.

  3. Hello, I am having the same issue although it had happened on two different installs. I am running unraid 6.9.2 This started a week or so ago, I read everything I could find and tried different things and nothing worked. I removed the zoneminder docker, deleted the zppdata/zoneminder folder, deleted everything in the storage share, deleted the share. Next I created a new storage share, named it ZMData72, installed the zoneminder docker but named the appdata folder zoneminder72, created all my cameras and set up my zones, then created my filters. All worked well for tw
  4. Not sure if this is an example of correlation not equaling causation, or not, but system crashed twice while deleting and I lost one of the HDDs in my system. Currently doing a data-rebuild on a new HDD.
  5. Thank you, since they aren't known to zoneminder, I am using Midnight Commander to delete, it is slow but seems to be working. I will update. Chas
  6. Hello, this worked but unfortunately I used the same share for data hoping that the new install would find the old events and images. This didn't work out so well. All of the old images are still on the share but ZM doesn't see them so I can't delete them with a filter. Unless I am completely failing to comprehend something here. I can't find a way to delete the terabytes of data from the drive, quickly and or easily. Any suggestions are appreciated. Chas
  7. The database fails to start, zoneminder fails to start. Do I need to delete the folder and start over?
  8. I am having a real hard time with this. I did service mysql start, it failed. I posted the error messages, and searched them on the ZM forum but I make very little sense out of what folks are saying there. Most of the issues were months ago, mine started with the update two days ago. If anyone has any ideas of where to look for the answer, id appreciate it
  9. Thank you for the directions. I followed them and, of course it worked. MySql and Zoneminder not started. *** Running /etc/my_init.d/999_advanced_script.sh... *** Booting runit daemon... *** Runit started as PID 723 Apr 10 10:19:59 c79345477ec2 cron[726]: (CRON) INFO (pidfile fd = 3) Apr 10 10:19:59 c79345477ec2 cron[726]: (CRON) INFO (Running @reboot jobs) Apr 10 10:21:35 c79345477ec2 zmpkg[1221]: ERR [Error reconnecting to db: errstr:Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2) error val:] Apr 10 10:21:35 c79345477e
  10. I have found some info that directed me to https://github.com/dlandon/zoneminder.unraid but I can find no instructions on how to Create an environment variable: NO_START_ZM="1" Being a complete rook, I tried, No Joy whatsoever. Any directions/suggestions would be appreciated.
  11. Hello, My zoneminder updated today, and the updated docker failed to start. Anyone have any suggestions, Zoneminder has been working for me really well for a couple of years.

  12. Thank you for your help, that worked perfectly.Server booted with the GUI first try.
  13. Thanks, what am I missing? I am running a dell R710 with an onboard chip: NamePowerEdge R710 MGA G200eW WPCM450 ManufacturerMatrox Electronics Systems Ltd. and a Nvidia P2000. My monitor is connected to the onboard vga. I see the screen up until the gui loads and then it is just a blank screen, no curser. OS Version 6.9.1 2021-03-08 Nvidia plugin 2021.03.22 v460.67
  14. Ich777, any movement on this issue? I have been quietly monitoring looking for a response but it's been quiet for a while. Chas
  15. I've got as much time as it takes, the system is working fine, it is just that the server is now headless and that is not an issue at all. Thank you for what you are doing and for any assistance that you can give me. I just wanted to update this so that you have all of the info possible. I was able to get access to the display ports on the nvidia card and I am not getting the unraid gui via the display port on the nvidia card either. Chas
