Motion - Support Question 2007x 11x 27x 093818

Cannot connect to MySQL database

Question

I would like to use with Motion MySql. Motion works perfectly, but I need to put the records on a Mysql Database outside. Using the commands in webcam1.conf or motion.conf:

sql_log_image on sql_log_snapshot on sql_log_mpeg off sql_log_timelapse off

sql_query insert into security(camera, filename, frame, file_type, time_stamp, event_time_stamp) values('%t', '%f', '%q', '%n', '%Y-%m-%d %T','%C')

mysql_db my_db_name mysql_host host_ip_address mysql_user my_username mysql_password my_password

When I run motion, the output is this:

[0] Processing thread 0 - config file motion.conf

Answer

It seems that is a problem of timeout :

110: Connection timed out

So verify that connection to your mysql it's ok. FYI Mysql 5.x supports automatic reconnection , so if you have this kind of problem is better that you upgrade your mysql server to 5.x version and recompile motion wth mysql client library for 5.x
