When i use the web interface (mmaltest) on motion it doesn't appear to change the operation of motion.
It remembers the values i change on the web interface, so looks like it's working, but is's not transferring the values across when i look using terminal.
1) where does motion look for its motion.conf file? I've seen a conf file in etc/motion.conf and /ect/motion/motion.conf; which one is motion using?
2)if motion runs as user motion, and the permissions are set to 0777 can user pi see /change the motion.conf file?
