after setting up a camera, ended up with:

#============= httpd_t ==============
allow httpd_t zoneminder_var_lib_t:lnk_file create;
allow httpd_t zoneminder_var_lib_t:sock_file { create unlink };

#============= zoneminder_script_t ==============
allow zoneminder_script_t cert_t:dir search;
allow zoneminder_script_t httpd_t:unix_dgram_socket sendto;
allow zoneminder_script_t mysqld_port_t:tcp_socket name_connect;
allow zoneminder_script_t sysfs_t:dir read;
allow zoneminder_script_t sysfs_t:file { getattr open read };
allow zoneminder_script_t tmpfs_t:dir { add_name create read remove_name rmdir write };
allow zoneminder_script_t tmpfs_t:file { create getattr open read unlink write };
allow zoneminder_script_t zoneminder_var_lib_t:file { create lock open unlink write };

#============= zoneminder_t ==============

allow zoneminder_t fs_t:filesystem getattr;
allow zoneminder_t mysqld_port_t:tcp_socket name_connect;
allow zoneminder_t rtsp_port_t:tcp_socket name_connect;

and enabling nis_enabled.
