Eliminated Software Requirements

January 5th, 2010 Comments off

I am happy to announce with revision r505 that the software requirements are finally reduced to a minimum! phTagr requires now only a basic LAMP:

  • Webserver (tested with Apache)
  • PHP (tested with PHP5)
  • GD or ImageMagick
  • database engine (tested with mysql)

This change improves and simplifies the initial steps to run this great gallery! Further, the installation documentation was updated and improved.

exiftool and ffmpeg are no longer required to run the basic operations. Further the dependend PEAR libraries are now included into the software. The new version could be downloaded as  ZIP archive or TAR ball – happy  testing.

Without exiftool the meta data like tags, categories or geo location are imported from photos but not be written back to them. Without ffmpeg only flash movies could be imported. If you have ffmpeg other video formats are supported and the videos are automatically converted from AVI, MPEG or MOV to the flash file format. ffmpeg also creates the a video preview. If now preview exists a default image is shown.

I have just updated the demo page of phTagr. Please feel free to test phTagr with the login demo and password demo08. Go ahead and tag the images in the section “My Images”!

You can also manage the sample images using WebDAV. The WebDAV address is http://demo.phtagr.org/webdav.

[update] You can view older screenshots of phtagr when you login with the demo user.
