@pinjiz: Thanks for the report, I've added which to the depends and pushed it, but w/o a pkgrel bump. I'm looking at my Docker image which is what I actually use and that folder is actually a symlink to /var. Are you sure it should be a folder?

lrwxrwxrwx  1 unifi-video unifi-video 20 Jul 31 12:20 data -> /var/lib/unifi-video

This package now requires 'which' as it is no longer part of 'base'. Otherwise JAVA=$(readlink -e $(which java)) in /usr/bin/unifi-video will fail.

Additionally I had to create the directory /usr/lib/unifi-video/data/ manually.

@fryfrog I just set this up and had to use @mohaine's script to get mongodb to start

Another issue I had was the missing /usr/lib/unifi-video/data directory. The unifi-video service wouldn't start until I manually created the data subdir and changed the ownership to unifi-video

@mohaine, what is trying to start mongodb w/ the --nohttpinterface option? Nothing shows up when I grep -ir -- "--nohttpinterface" the sources.

Edit: It must be something inside the java files. :/

Thanks mohaine for the fix. New to unifi-video, arch is my preferred distro. Couldn't get it running because of mongod startup errors, your script fixed the issue. Thanks for commenting on a fix for the rest of us to find and use!

after doing a system update, unifi refused to get past the "Processing update" page. It seems that mongo will not start due to an unknown cmd line argument.

I replaced the mongod sym link (/usr/lib/unifi-video/bin/mongod) with the following bash script to remove the argument and all is well.


exec '/usr/bin/mongod' $clean

Heads up, 3.8.0 adds a new port. If you're doing anything tricky, you'll need 7442 as well as the old 7443. A symptom I saw from this was that the cameras would connect after the update, do their firmware update and then never re-appear.

@fryfrog @paco3346

chowning the config folder does fix the problem for the live view! Thanks for finding this out!

@paco3346: Sorry for not updating, I also help w/ the docker version and did that way back when 3.7.1 came out. Should have done this one too. :/

I checked inside my docker and that dir is all unifi-video:unifi-video.

I'll add a chown to the packages install/update and it'll "fix" it every install/upgrade at least. Or maybe it should be a pre-run in the systemd unit file? :/

Also, 3.7.1 has been out for a while

I've had no issues simply swapping out the version number and updating the sha256 hash.
