Configuring ZoneMinder on Ubuntu – Buttons Don’t Work (Javascript Errors)

If you’re configuring ZoneMinder (a great IP camera control application) on Ubuntu, and the console doesn’t work (buttons aren’t active when you click them), your problem is probably that the Javascript path isn’t working.

To test this, view source on the console page, and check the path to MooTools.

MooTools should be installed in /usr/shared/javascript/mootools.  The configuration for shared javascript should be in /etc/apache2/conf-enabled.  For me, for whatever reason, conf-enabled wasn’t actually enabled.  Copying javascript-common.conf to /etc/apache2/conf.d and then restarting apache (/etc/init.d/apache2 force-reload) worked to fix the problem.
