Motion - Support Question 2006x 04x 13x 174144

mini http server



first i want to say "very good job !!!!" second: i have created an html page called webcam.html (not original i know :o) ), and placed it in /etc/motion with the cambozola.jar but it seems that it is not the rigth directory because IE dont see it...he wants download something. Firefox dont generate this error but dont display my page, just the stream.

So this is my question, where to place this files ?

If you think "rtfm", guide me to the rigth page :o) Thanks

Please put your console output, config file text, text from logs etc
between the two VERBATIM tags and not outside to ensure that you get
the text shown with line breaks.

Take a look to the guide :

Btw , update the version of motion to 3.2.6 ( there's a deb package for debian sarge ):

You can not serve other html pages through the Motion mini http server: The idea is to communicate with the running Motion instance only. You should place your cambozola.jar and your webcam.html in your ordinary webserver directory. I.e. /var/www/
