Gallery Configuration Wizard: Step 1
This is the Gallery system check page. This page will validate your installation to make sure that you have all the necessary components and permissions on this system and that everything is configured reasonably.

Having problems? Try the documentation, Gallery Diagnostics Page and Gallery Help Page.

Check to see how old Gallery version 1.5 is.  

Warning!

This version of Gallery was released on 04/14/05. You can check for more recent versions by visiting http://gallery.sourceforge.net.

Check to see if you are running PHP 4.1.0 or greater.
Since Gallery 1.4.5 Gallery needs at least PHP 4.1.0, this is due to that some versions of PHP have bugs that cause Gallery to fail and that older Version does not have required functionality.
 

Success

PHP v5.3.3 is OK.

We are using predefined variables which some older version of PHP have problems with.  

Success

Your version of PHP handles this issue properly.

Gallery highly recommends that the PHP option 'register_globals' be turned off, for security purposes. Some software, notably the 'Geeklog' CMS, requires that 'register_globals' be enabled.  

Success

register_globals is off.

Check to see if PHP is running in safe_mode. Safe Mode is a PHP security feature commonly used in shared environments. Gallery cannot run when Safe Mode is enabled because it imposes too many restrictions.  

Success

safe_mode is off.

The exec() function is what Gallery uses to launch programs such as NetPBM, ImageMagick, and jhead. If exec() is disabled on your server then Gallery will not be able operate.  

Success

exec() is not disabled on this server.

Allow the Gallery .htaccess file to set application specific configuration options for the Gallery application. This is controlled by the webserver owner so it's not always possible for you to change it. The main drawbacks to not having this are that you may not be able to upload files > 2MB (e.g. big ZIP files or movies).  

Success

I can read your .htaccess file.

Check to see if magic quotes are enabled on your PHP server. If they're on, you may notice strange behavior if you put ' (single-quote), " (double quote) or \ (backslash) characters in titles or captions in Gallery.  

Success

magic_quotes are off.

Check to see if your webserver is compiled with mod_rewrite. This Apache module allows Gallery to use shorter URLs that are easier to read and look nicer when you mail them to your web-challenged relatives. It's not an essential feature.  

Success

mod_rewrite is enabled.

Check to see if NetPBM is installed so that Gallery can manipulate images (rotate, resize, make thumbnails, etc.). You only need to have either NetPBM or ImageMagick installed.  

Warning

Missing optional binary pnmcomp. Without pnmcomp and pamcomp gallery will not be able to watermark images, unless you use ImageMagick and have the composite binary installed.

12 of 13 NetPBM binaries located.

Check to see if ImageMagick is installed so that Gallery can manipulate images (rotate, resize, make thumbnails, etc.). You only need to have either ImageMagick or NetPBM installed.  

Warning

Missing optional binary composite. Without composite gallery will not be able to watermark images, except you use NetPBM and have the pnmcomp binary installed.

2 of 3 ImageMagick binaries located.

Check to see if jhead is installed so that Gallery can examine EXIF headers embedded in images created with most digital cameras.  

Warning

I can't find jhead. If it's installed and not in the path of the webserver user that's OK—you can specify the path by hand on the following page. If it's not installed, you can install it yourself. Jhead is a public domain EXIF parser. Source, linux binaries, and windows binaries can be found at the jhead homepage.

Check to see if jpegtran is installed so that Gallery can perform lossless rotations on JPEG images.  

Warning

I can't find jpegtran. If it's installed and not in the path of the webserver user that's OK—you can specify the path by hand on the following page. If it's not installed, you can install it yourself. Jpegtran is a free tool distributed by the Independent JPEG Group as part of libjpeg. Source may be found at the IJG homepage. Binaries may be found at the JPEG Club website or in the libjpeg package of Linux distributions.

Check to see if PHP is compiled with GNU gettext support for fast translations.  

Success

PHP has GNU gettext support.

Check to see what languages are available.  

Warning

It seems you didn't download any additional languages. This is not a problem! Gallery will appear just in English. Note: If this is not true, check that all files in locale folder are readable for the webserver, or contact the Gallery Team.

Checking to see if you have the latest versions of all Gallery files.  

Success

All tested files up-to-date.

Your installation has warnings, but this is usually OK. Keep going!
