The paths and URLs in this guide are examples. Be sure to replace them with the paths and URLs specific to your installation.

Note: If you are upgrading from a previous version of Gallery, please see the Upgrading Guide

Note: Gallery 1.x requires certain programs to be installed before it can work correctly.

Note: This guide assumes you have administrative access to the Windows machine that will run Gallery. In almost all cases, this administrative access is required.

  1. Unpack your downloaded Gallery files and place them under your webroot. (Standard installation directory is "C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache\htdocs"). This may vary depending on the location of your Apache installation. Don't worry if the file extension unknown to you, since WinZip and WinRAR both support .tar.gz archives.
  2. Create a directory on your webspace called albums. Gallery will use this directory to store the albums you create and the images you upload to those albums. For ease, create this directory inside your base Gallery directory.
  3. Run the configuration wizard, as described in this guide
  4. Enjoy your new Gallery!
