I recently found out that Gallery is going to hibernation, when I was trying to update my install. It’s sad but really understandable. Everybody has their own lives and I could attest to that. People move on and prioritize more important things such as family, school or work.
In light of all of this, I have decided to just move all my photos to my wordpress blog. This would consolidate all my photos since I am mostly using WP to post photos anyway. The only problem is how do I upload my photos to my WP. Physically, all my photos are on the same server albeit on a different hard drive . But, there isn’t a clear way to upload my stuff to WP. I found a plugin “Add from Server” which at first looked promising but It failed the first time I tried it. I am thinking I can just add the photos through PhpMyadmin. I need to investigate further.
Got upgrade fever again. I updated my online gallery to the latest and greatest. I also tried out their new theme, which I find a little dark. Overall, I find the upgrade made my site snappier than the old one. Kudos to the Gallery team! Good Job!
For 3 days I was mucking with the site and Installed lighttpd 1.5 with modcache. Well I was able to get it to partially work ..but what sucks is there is something wrong with the way Lighty 1.5 handles the aliasing of some of the apps such as Gallery 3 and WordPress.
For one,the login page for this main blog is all borked. There is no graphics that is showing .On the wedding project blog ,all the graphics is not showing. Oh,I forgot to mention that I only got this on my home network.When I access the site outside,everything is perfect. So I what I could do.I looked at all the resources ,googled everything but nada,not a thing solves the problem. No wonder when I try to see if Debian has official Lighttpd 1.5 ,I couldn’t find any . It seems 1.5 is still not ready for primetime.
