Zoneminder not rendering when authentication is enabled

  • Hi all, this is my first post :)

    I have zoneminder installed (the one compiled to use nginx) and it is working beautifully when no authentication is required to access zoneminder.

    I am having a problem however when I try to enable a username and password. For some reason the video is not showing up when it is enabled. After looking at the logs I can see that the sockets either are not being created or the sockets that are created cannot be connected to. Sample err from log below

    socket_sendto( /tmp/zm/zms-> 259629s.sock ) failed: No such file or directory

    Looking at an Ubuntu thread here, two methods seemingly fixed the issue


    Set the correct timezone in etc/php5/apache2/php.ini. This fixed the time issue, unauthenticated user issue and the socket issue.

    Since I am not using apache but nginx I am at a lost. Would someone with a little more experience be able to point me in the right direction?
