I recently used the Gallery install:
Step #4 … has nothing in it. Changing the path to nothing doesn’t seem right, so …
Now visit the site to finish your installation with these settings:
Select your language and click “Begin Installation>>”
Follow the direction here carefully! You MUST create a login.txt file
in your web directory with the characters listed on that page!
Then click “Authenticate Me”, then “Continue to Step 2>>”
(There will be a possible long delay while this page loads.)
Everything should work fine! Click “Continue to Step 3>>”
Don’t change anything… you want “Standard Installation”.
Just click “Continue to Step 4>>”
CHANGE the Directory path to be:
Click “Save”, then “Continue to Step 5>>”
Database type : MySQL (v3.23.34a and newer)
DB Hostname : xxx.xxx.xxx (NOT localhost!)
DB Username : xxx
DB Password : xxxxx
DB Name : xxxxxx
Table Prefix : (whatever)
Column Prefix : (whatever)
Click “Save”, then “Continue to Step 6>>”
Create your Admin User… enter whatever you’d like,
this is how you will manage your Gallery installation!
Click “Create”, then “Continue to Step 7>>”
Your config file should be created correctly automatically!
Click “Continue to Step 8>>”
You should have no problems here … if you do, try going back to
Step 6 and if you’re using a database you’ve used for a previous
Gallery install, make sure the “Table Prefix” and "Column Prefix"
Click “Continue to Step 9>>”
Choose all the plugins you’d like to have, then click “Activate
Selected Plugins”. If any plugins show up in orange, after you’re
done with installation you’ll need to configure them some more from
the “Plugins” area under “Site Admin”.
Click “Continue to Step 10>>”
Should be fine… click “Continue to Step 11>>”
Click “Go to my Gallery!” and then the “Login” link at the top!
Have fun! If you need help, please visit the official forums here:
