    Anyone using Gallery 2? Install questions...
    I'm trying to install Gallery 2, but it's like a 72 step installation process! Okay, maybe 12 steps and I keep getting stuck. I'm pretty limited in my skill set here, is this just over my head? I need a photo gallery/album to attach to a website. I would like to have at least several people be able to add picts so that I'm not doing it all myself. photobucket is a little too awkward IMO, I want something a little slicker...

    Thanks,

    I've used it in the past. Where are you getting stuck?

    I've used it a few times in the past but I must admit I much prefer Coppermine.

    What/where are you getting stuck?

    My latest stuck spot is step 5, Database setup. I know nothing about this! I did try for a long time to do the multiple site setup and gave up, b/c I couldn't figure out how to enter the path name correctly. I have no prob abandoning this and using a different one...

    I attached a screenshot of where I'm stuck. It looks like an FTP page to me, but it won't accept any version of the info that I have FTP'd with before.

    I'll go look at Coppermine in the meantime. Any particular reason why you like it?

    Thanks,

    Ok, yeah. With your web host you need to create a MySQL database. After you create it, that's what G2 is looking for, the name of the database, username and password to access it.

    Sounds sensible. Except I don't know how to do that. Should I just make up a folder and FTP it to the server? I use go daddy. I've seen links to MySQL should I just go look around there?

    Its not something you just ftp up. There should be an option to create one in your control panel, assuming your hosting plan lets you have mysql databases, some don't.
