Download Gallery 3 and extract all files and folders to one folder which you place in the drupal directory under a name different than gallery (this conflicts to the module gallery that has been developed for drupal). In the root folder of your gallery you need to create a writable folder called var. This is where all your Gallery 3 data will be stored. Next, create a MySQL database for the Gallery 3 installation.

Once you have done this, open your preferred web browser and browse to your drupalwebsite/gallery3 (or the name you have given to the folder where the Gallery 3 code is located). The screen should look like this Gallery3 install.png.


If you get a warning at this point that go to the detailed installation instructions for Gallery 3. On the installation screen enter the username and password for the database you created.
