This script doesn't use a database support like MySQL, and doesn't require much knowledge about webmastering (only how to upload files).
The script is still in developpement, but you can see an example of the Beta 1 by clicking the link below :

Beta 1
How does it works ?

1-First, you will need a webhost using a php server properly configured (php alone is enough, MySQL is not required by the script). You can place the main script in the root of your website, or a subdirectory, it doesn't matters.

2-By accessing the url http://your_web_site_URL/your_galeriaphp_directory/, you can browse your pictures, and start customize your own galleries, by using the very simple user interface.

Known bugs and limitations

-NEVER use spaces in the name of the directory and files. Use underscores instead. The script will automatically replace underscores by spaces while printing the name of the files or directories on the screen.

-NEVER use ' in the name of the directories and files. It will result in a javascript error and will block the pop-up system for the whole gallery and its sub-galleries (if ' is in the directory name).

-Put only pictures compliants with the galleries in your directories (no other files formats that standard images -i.e : Jpeg, Gif, Png and Bmp- are handled by the current releases). To be fully honnest, theorically, all files formats accepted by the standard IMG markup must works, but the filter system is not yet fully implemented.

-Do not put any other kind of files than pictures in the directories used by galeria. It will result in a 'No-image-found' error in the gallery where this kind of files are.

... that's almost all
