I've been happily using one of the early(er) versions of Coppermine for quite some time on a lighly-used Dreamhost-hosted domain; it's full featured, easy to install, easy to maintain, supports a passel of language files, and comes with several nice looking built-in themes. You can tell I like it.
I was preparing to install a gallery script on a much more heavily used domain for a fanart gallery of mine, and one of the newest versions of Coppermine was obviously where I looked first.
However, I recently heard from someone who said his Coppermine install was causing major problems with his Dreamhost server, to the point that Dreamhost might disable it entirely. Speed and low impact on the shared server (which usually go hand in hand) are always primary concerns of mine, so this "rumor" concerns me greatly.
Has anybody else run Coppermine without issue on a DH server, or is there some other relatively lightweight image management script I can look to in lieu of it?
