I've have seen a few sites with a photo gallery, is that what the coppermine is? If so how do I add it?

Make sure you get the Coppermine for phpNuke! Do not try to install the stand alone module.

I have Coppermine installed on a few sites. I love it. It comes with an install.txt. Make sure you read and follow it very carefully. Like many modules you install there are files to upload, and database tables to create, and changes in your admin modules, and configuration of the actually module too. If you are not updating your Coppermine there is an install.sql file you can run from your browser.

Read the install.txt, it's very helpful.

And once installed go into Coppermine admin config and spend some time in there. Will you allow users access? etc. All configured from the module admin section.

Hope that helps.

Basically download it and read the install instructions. Decide if its for you. There are others too. Menalto Gallery is great but its not compatable with all hosting accounts. Coppermine and MeG both offer GD thumbnails which is available on the majority of php hosted sites. If your looking for high quality printable sized images I'd take a serious look at the Menalto Gallery.

LOL took me 3 minutes longer to make a shorter reply!

Personally I have found Coppermine to be easiest. BTW, my 7.0 distro comes with Coppermine pre-installed.

What do I need to do to make it work? This is the error I get when I try to upload an image.

Do I need to create a folder "upload" to that path?

Uploaded pics go to modules/coppermine/albums/userpics

You 1st need to create some albums in coppermine admin and set permissions for uploading to them.

Just to warn you though, if the same thing happens to you, I have had a few problems with coppermine in the past, and its still not fixed, both hosts I have been with in the last 2 months, when a user uploads a pic to coppermine, I cannot delete it myself in ftp, it seems to get locked as it uploads under "apache" and that not being my username on my host, stops me deleting them. The coppermine script cant delete them for me either.
More the hosts fault that anything else I guess.

That error you got. You need to chmod /albums/ and all subfolders to 777.

Have you chmod your album directories? Set permissions.? I do it in CuteFtp. I think the install.txt says 774.

I think its the way they decided to exceed the max php upload size of 2mb (usual limit). If you have SSH access it will change the permissions from there.

I'd hunt down that code and just let it use php uploads.

Did you chmod the directory in question to be writable 0777 ?

Is it 777 or 774?

I do this the albums folder and all other subfolders and files?

When you read the install guide, it says 777.
