thanks for the tip haggis it worked.
however i’m still tearing my hair out trying to get gallery installed… i don’t know how everyone found it simple =) makes me feel like a complete dummy.
i was able to get everything installed but then got stuck on the configuration. when i open the browser to domain.com/gallery and hit the configuration wizard it doesn’t let me get past that page. It says I need to correct some problems to proceed. From what I can tell the only serious problem warning is :
The exec() function is what Gallery uses to launch programs such as NetPBM, ImageMagick, and jhead. If exec() is disabled on your server then Gallery will not be able operate
The exec() function is disabled on your server. Gallery will not function with this PHP configuration.
I wonder if i’ll ever get through this
