Im not sure about 12.0 but it works great in 13 and also worked in 12.2.
13.1 forced me to use the 13.0 perl and mysql packages.

Follow the instructions here. You may need to upgrade to 12.2 and you will need to run mysql and apache. It is not too hard to set up but it takes a little time. Also make sure your camera works with linux first.

I installed a slack server running zoneminder in my boss's office after logs showed his computer booting up while he was not there. The cam he bought zooms and pans from his home via the browser interface.
At home I have used it with a webcam but in low light situations my webcam is useless.

Zoneminder on slack 12.2

Edit /etc/httpd/httpd.conf and fix up apache by setting a hostname, enabling php and adding a virtual host.

I have referred the link u have provided.
Is this step necessary adding virtual host,and fix up apache by setting a hostname.

You need a webserver running.
In both cases in which I set up zoneminder I have used virtual hosts.
The config file for virtual hosts (in my version) is /etc/httpd/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf.

If you have php installed:
Enabling PHP is as easy as uncommenting a line in httpd.conf

You should make sure you can get a web server running before working on zoneminder.

I don't know of any reason you couldn't just use the main server for hosting zoneminder and not use a virtual host.

Do make sure to add index.php to the DirectoryIndex line in httpd.conf

Also make sure to do
apachectl restart
to restart apache after making any changes.

If you don't have a static ip and domain name, you can use dyndns or noip so you can connect to your server without having to enter your ip address.
