The key config file will be the /etc/apache2/conf.d/zoneminder.conf ,
which you created with a symlink using this instruction: 

Link Apache to Zoneminder
ln -s /etc/zm/apache.conf /etc/apache2/conf.d/zoneminder.conf

Check that file to make sure it is present. I downloaded the package
and looked at it, and you are correct that http://localhost/zm should
be the right location. 

When I run into these issues I restart Apache and then look in
/var/log/apache2 to see what errors might have come up when I restart.
Then I visit the webpage and look for clues there. 

I know this is really generic advice, but I hope it is not completely
