    Joomla Image Gallery

    Are there any recommends? I have been searching all weekend for an image gallery which does the job and actually works.

    The best looking and feature rich one seemed to be 'zoom'... yet i've had nightmares getting this darn thing to work. No matter what I do, I cannot upload pictures... it keeps freezing. I've tried some older versions but came across different bugs trying to do the same thing. Makes me wonder why the thing was released with such major bugs.

    So.. I need help you joomla experts. Which one do I choose that works? Most of all I just want a basic image gallery that has as little bugs as possible, but any cool features (I liked the 'zoom' feature on the zoom gallery) would be appreciated (as the kids love stuff like that).

    Cheers.

    Re: Joomla Image Gallery

    I put Gallery2 on my Joomla install after researching the options - works realy well - fully integrates (components and modules) and authenticates users beween the two systems.

    Not as comprehensive as Coppermine but for what I wanted - perfect. Install is very easy, not worth looking at the minor galleries IMHO.

    I recommend Gallery2 as well, it's feature set and community is quite impressive, and with a little work you can integrate it into just about anything.

    Re: Joomla Image Gallery

    I tried this. Every time I try and upload I get:

    Internal Server Error
    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

    Please contact the server administrator, Jsumner@theoval.bham.sch.uk and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

    More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

    (I feel like yelling "I am the server administrator but I STILL don't know what the problem is!")

    I will try an earlier version and see if that makes any difference. I'm guessing it won't.

    Have you checked the apache error logs?

    Nope - but with any luck I have found a version that works. So i'll have a mess around with gallery2 and see what happens. It's a terrible shame that the 'zoom' gallery had so many bugs, it has great potential.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    Okay I had a mess around with the gallery yesterday and it seems it still doesn't work. The first pic uploaded and processed fine, but anything afterwards came up with said error. The pics actually appear to upload (they are in the upload folder) but just don't process afterwards. This is thr trouble I was having with zoom gallery. Very occasionally it actually works though.

    I suspect looking at the apache error logs may be a way forward. Do you know how to do this? I cannot seem to find them anywhere. Bearing in mind that this is not our server.

    I may contact the provider (plugsocket) if necessary.

    Re: Joomla Image Gallery

    Apache logs live in:

    Code:
    /var/log/apache2/sitename-errors.log
    here. Should be something similar.

    The closest I get is var/log/httpd/

    Re: Joomla Image Gallery

    I e-mailed the host and they increased the default memory allocation from 8mb to 16mb. Now smaller images get through but larger ones (200-300kb) come up with an error such as the following: "Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 16777216 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 600 bytes) in /var/www/html/components/com_zoom/lib/toolbox.class.php on line 622".

    Am I expecting too much for them to increase it again? I get the impression that most people cope with 8mb.

    Our VLE (Moodle) runs with 64mb. They may ask you to move on to a more featureful/expensive hosting package. Or they may just say no.

    Re: Joomla Image Gallery

    We actually have a package with them that allows for five websites (but only use two of them). I'm not sure whether the default memory allocation applies for all five or just per website but if it is per website I may ask them to double it and remove one or two allowances for websites.

    We only bought the five website package deal because it was cheaper then having two separate one site packages.

    Also check cPanel (or whatever the hosts site control panel software is) you can sometimes alter PHP settings yourself.
