Installing Gallery on Ubuntu 12.04

Easy option – running it as a virtual machine using the turnkey linux appliance at http://www.turnkeylinux.org/gallery

Doing it manually

  • Install apache,php and mysql – see previous post
  • Download Gallery at http://galleryproject.org/
  • Enable Server_Add option (to use pictures on an existing local drive rather than having to re-upload through the web interface)
  • Enable ffmpeg to be able to see movies through interface at http://codex.galleryproject.org/Gallery3:Modules:ffmpeg
  • Enable Pear theme from http://codex.galleryproject.org/Gallery3:Themes:pear4gallery3, looks really nice!
