Zoneminder API not working

#1 Post by toquinho »

Hello,

I installed the zoneminder package a) on a fresh install of bullseye and b) on a fresh install of buster. For the buster installation, I did a backport of the Debian zoneminder package: https://packages.debian.org/bullseye/zoneminder
For the installation, I followed the descriptions on https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Debian_10_B ... om_ZM_Repo and https://zoneminder.readthedocs.io/en/st ... an-stretch. In both cases, I could access the zoneminder web server from a browser running on a different machine (expected), but I was not able to access the zoneminder API, which is required to view the camera images with tools other than the web browser. I had followed the instructions on the following site to configure API access:
https://zmninja.readthedocs.io/en/lates ... g-api.html

Finally, I removed the Debian package and installed the one from the zoneminder repo: https://zmrepo.zoneminder.com/debian/release-1.34/. With this package, the API worked without any further configuration changes. So I am wondering if anybody knows whether this is a bug in the Debian package or whether API access has been disabled on purpose.

Best regards,

Toquinho
