QuoteYou cannot use pipes or redirects when executing system calls which is painful (though not insurmountable) for the graphics manipulation packages like NetPBM that expect to use pipelining.mkdir() will not allow you to create new directories unless the parent directory has the same UID as the process being executed. This means that Gallery will not be able to create it's data directories under the top-level "albums" directory that you created using ssh/ftp -- your ISP will have to chown the top-level directory for you in order for you to successfully install Gallery.You cannot call set_time_limit() in safe mode, which means that Gallery cannot do anything that takes longer than 30 seconds (or whatever the server is configured to allow). This means that at the 30 second mark, your operation will be interrupted. Since the most commonly used database (MySQL) in its most commonly implemented setup (MyISAM) does not allow transactions, this means that you virtually guarantee data corruption when your long operation fails.
Quote from: XepherThat said, I personally find gallery to be needlessly complicated code for what should be a rather simple task. I haven't used the 2.x series much, but about 40% of the bot/hack attacks I've had to deal with were from bugs in users various gallery (1.x) installs... another 50% were bugs in phpBB installs. I'm not saying don't use it if it's what you want. Just keep it up to date when they release bug fixes, and maybe take a look to see if there's some lighter weight code somewhere that still does what you need. I personally wrote my own simple gallery/thumbnail maker. It's one file, and does really nothing but accept uploads, let you title/date them, and automatically make a thumbnail. http://xepher.xepher.net/images/ Code is http://xepher.xepher.net/images/code.phps It's 4kb, and requires nothing outside of PHP itself. Gallery is 9.5 MB! and also requires external programs to process images. To me, that just means a lot of room for bugs and potential exploits, mostly in features and such that I'd never even use. I'm betting someone out there has written something that'll do what you need without being as much overkill as gallery is. Totally your choice though.
