Motion - Support Question 2006x 05x 27x 123932

Getting nph-mjprox to run


Thanks for your reply to question 2006x05x23x092215. Sorry to bother you again, I can't get the nph-mjprox to work. In your applet snippet, you state cambozolar6.jar, I believe the 6 is not required as it is not in the cambozola dist. Motion is streaming on 8081 ok, but cambozola apparently can't connect to nph-mjprox? The cambozola works fine directly without the mj-prox.

Is /kabi your cgi directory?

Either you need to put nph-mjprox in the real cgi directory (often called cgi-bin) or you need to setup Apache to see the kabi directory as a cgi directory with a scriptalias setting in httpd.conf.

Try and move it to cgi-bin and use /cgi-bin/nph-mjprox?1 instead.
