I finally got my Raspberry PI Zero rev1.3 running and installed reef-Pi for testing. However, the camera tab doesn't work and only shows and saves black images. It also shows a "404 page not found | HTTP 404" on the top right.
I have a Raspberry Pi camera v2 module connected.

Also, if I run the bucket command from the Troubleshoot guide
Code:
sudo reef-pi db buckets
I get: Failed due to error: Failed to open database. Check if reef-pi is already running
Reef-Pi is running though and I can see the historical CPU and Mem load in the dashboard
(BTW a legend would be nice, since I have no idea what 0.3 CPU and 12 memory mean)

I enabled the camera support in raspbi-config and if I run
Code:
raspistill -o image.jpg
I actually get an image. I downloaded it using WinSCP and it shows my living room. The regular images Reef-Pi has been taking are black however.

Has anybody had the same issue ?

You have to stop reef-pi daemon before you can run the db commands
