Title: Coppermine Live-Demo
Post by: Joachim Müller on July 31, 2006, 12:59:52 am
For those who want to preview Coppermine before actually installing it on a real production server we have created a Live-Demo:

The live-demo is not the actual Coppermine package that you should run on your webserver/webspace. It is just a package that provides a local webserver with a pre-configured Coppermine install rolled into one package to preview the "real" Coppermine Photo Gallery on your Windows box. The webserver is being started by only executing one single file, so you don't have to go through the troubles of setting up a webserver environment on your local PC just for evaluation purposes. The sole purpose of the live-demo is to give you an impression how the admin backend of Coppermine looks and feels. It is only meant to be used for evaluation purposes. You mustn't run it as a production system, because it has deliberately been configured in an unsecure manner to provide a newbie-proof experience in the first place.

The live-demo has been created using the tool server2go (http://www.server2go-web.de/), which is an app that allows you to create a portable webserver environment (using Apache, PHP, mySQL) for Windows. The software is donation-ware (everybody can use it for free, however you're asked to donate to the author). The Coppermine dev team would like to thank Timo Haberkern (the author of server2go) for providing this nice tool. It's mandatory though that you understand that the Coppermine group is not afiliated with server2go in any way - we do not provide support for it, and subsequently we don't support the live-demo.

The Live-Demo is experimental - not in terms of stability, but in terms of support. If it should turn out that the Live-Demo is causing too many support requests (although it goes totally unsupported, but I'm convinced that there will be morons who will ask for support on it), we'll drop it. Make sure that it isn't you who is the culprit for the removal of the Live-Demo: don't ask questions about it. We mean it.

However, we'd appreciate feedback - tell us if the Live-Demo helped you in figuring out how Coppermine works.

333 downloads as of now, yet zero comments?
By posting above that the Live-Demo doesn't get supported at all I must have scared everyone away, sorry. Just as  a clarification: the Live-Demo doesn't get supported, yet I would like to hear your opinion about it.
If you find it useful, I might add some more features to it (and maybe create a Knoppix port as well with a bootable Linux OS with a pre-configured Coppermine install) - or even several of them (one with a standalone Coppermine install, some installs with various bridges and plugins enabled).

Well, I downloaded it tonight, and tried it out. It would not run. All I got was a couple of "access denied" dialog boxes, then I had to kill start.exe manually to get rid of it.

Just downloaded and tested on my windows box and it worked fine.
I had to stop the local XAMPP server before running this live demo.

@tektsu, Frantz - if you have any http server running on your setup like IIS or Apache, stop it first and then try live demo again.
Title: Re: Coppermine Live-Demo
Post by: Joachim Müller on August 04, 2006, 09:09:56 am
Of course Aditya is right: I didn't expect that users are running a webserver on their windows box - people who are capable to do so are not the target audience, as they probably already have the skills to set up coppermine without the need for the Live-Demo. The Live-Demo actually starts a webserver of it's own (an apache webserver with PHP and mySQL), so another webserver already running probably will interfere.
In the next version of the Live-Demo, I'll make sure to add some caveats to the readme about collision of webservers.

Hello,
if you want to do, you can give the following information also to the english community:

More than look and feel... it´s real!
I have installed a full Coppermine-Gallery on one of my web-servers.
EVERYONE who wants to test it, can do it.
Look at http://quickhosting24.de/coppermine

The Live-Demo mustn't be used as a real production server, as I said before. If the install you're refering to is a Live-Demo install, then take it off immediately (for your own good). If it is not a Live-Demo, but a regular Coppermine install, then you've replied to the wrong thread.

Thanks for the demo, downloaded and ran without any problems and had a good play. This has now given me the confidence to use the script on my web site. The next thing is to get inside it and remove some of the functions and try to add some others. No doubt I will be paying the support forum a visit before long.

The Live-Demo has been updated to version1.1 to reflect the release of cpg1.4.9 (the underlying coppermine install that is embedded into the Live-Demo is now based on cpg1.4.9). The issues with parallel apache services that can't co-exist on one machine have been noted in the documentation that comes with the Live-Demo as well.

Since I travel a lot, I use my corporate laptop to do most of my CPG work. IT has Apache blocked (and rightly so I guess) so that I can't install it and they won't release the block. I get a lot of other privileges from them and won't push this issue. So until I get a separate hard drive or stay home more often, I'll have to hold off on this cool tool. Bummer  :(

I'm currently working on a Linux Boot-CD (Knoppix-flavor) with Coppermine, phpMyAdmin, some tools and editors booting from CD... There's no way your corporate admin can keep you from using that unless they won't let you boot from CD (change of boot order and password protection of BIOS).

Very Cool GauGau! Actually I used to use a Ubuntu LiveCD for knocking around when I'm away and want to hang out on the net surfing without my company wondering what I'm up to. Mind you I do this off time but since I travel a lot and find myself in a lot of coffee houses, I don't really want to worry about the nasties I could catch. Using the corporate VPN for personal use is asking for trouble and the IT guys don't really care as long as I'm not picking up any viruses. So, I'd be very grateful for such a cool tool. If you have the time and can work this in, booting from a USB thumbdrive or flash card would be very cool too. I use a Linux mounted thumbdrive now and it's great. I love pulling it out, pluging it into peoples laptops and showing them in minutes that they can run Linux! Very cool!  :D

Hi all, especially to you, GauGau.

I really want to try this!

I looked at the galleries created by those who posted here. I have a Mac. It has iWeb which apparently has some version of Apache included. Afraid I wont be able to try the demo version.

I wish you would think of us ( photographers like Photoshop, and artsy people (like photographers and people who own Photoshop) who want to set up photo galleries like Macs best)....it would be nice.

I have a question about the demo albums I say. The images are SMALL. Can't they be bigger?

TIA

The Live-Demo is Windows-only. Won't run on a MAC. Use the real coppermine package if you want to test Coppermine's features on a local webserver. Additionally, the Live-Demo goes unsupported (as in "no support at all").

I have a question about the demo albums I say. The images are SMALL. Can't they be bigger?
Yes. As I suggested: the Live-Demo goes unsupported, especially on this announcement thread. Read the coppermine documentation.

Do not clutter this thread with unrelated issues!

Sorry, a live demo is usually in an actual live situation, so online. I don't think many users will be interested in installing executables on their machines to be able to see a demo of an online gallery package. Just some realism here. (don't shoot the messenger..)
Title: Re: Coppermine Live-Demo
Post by: Joachim Müller on April 28, 2007, 01:55:32 pm
Online gallery is available on this site: it is named "demo" (link at the top of this screen). You can of course not access the admin section of the demo. That's what the "live-Demo" is meant to be used for.
If you don't need it or like it, then don't use it. ::)

Hello,
to me this sounds like a great thing.

But I cant get it to work, at least not version 1.2 and 1.3. I click the start.exe, the "Coppermine Photo Gallery - Live-Demo for Windows Desktops"-page is showed and then I click "cpg1.4.x Live-Demo" which result in:

Coppermine critical error:
Unable to connect to database !
MySQL said: Unknown database 'coppermine'

I run a WinXP SP2. No other MySQL or webserver software.

Same problem here. A number of other people I know have tried versions 1.2 and 1.3 and can't get it to work either, same error.

I know that the demo goes unsupported. But if this is a common error, could someone suggest a solution for us newbies so we can use the demo for it's intended purpose?

Thanks

Demo Version 1.1 works great - thanks for providing this!

Hi,

I've been developing a .NET tool that accesses the coppermine database and image files.  Can the mySQL server and filesystem of the demo be accessed from 'outside' the demo instance?  If yes I'll have to check this out, it would be a great way to be able to get the same instance of coppermine up again and again for testing purposes. (and I could also get rid of my local instances of apache/mysql/etc).

Thanks,
Andrew

Hi all,

I downloaded the same 1.3 version of the demo and also have the same "MySQL said: Unknown database 'coppermine'" error.

I was able to connect to the MySQL running on port 7188 using MySQL Administrator, and it looks like the database doesn't exist at all to me:
(https://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fphoto.killfly.com%2Falbums%2Fuserpics%2F10001%2Ftables.JPG&hash=1e0d98bffcfa4e3679fb283e1fb88d48)

I think I'll try and get the DB from 1.2 into 1.3?  Worth a shot anyway.  At least I think I answered my question about being able to access the DB from outside the demo instance.  lol

Title: Re: Coppermine Live-Demo
Post by: FirstDivision on August 30, 2007, 02:24:35 am
Hi all,

Ok, I think I've got it.  I put a link to what I've called Demo 1.3.1 here:
http://blog.killfly.com/ (http://blog.killfly.com/)

This is at the above site, but I'll post it here for completeness.  What I finally did (after a few wrong turns) was:
 - Start Demo 1.1
 - Attach MySQL Administrator to the MySQL instance, and backup the coppermine database.
 - Stop Demo 1.1
 - Start Demo 1.3
 - Attach MySQL Administrator to the MySQL instance, and restore the backup from 1.1.
 - Stop the Demo1.3
 - Zip up Demo 1.3 as 1.3.1

Ok, now back to my original project, lol.
Title: Re: Coppermine Live-Demo
Post by: FirstDivision on August 30, 2007, 03:57:20 am
Well, I may have spoke too soon.  After trying the zip file on my laptop it didn't work...same 'Unknown Database' error.  Then I think found out something else, there a difference between the two pms_config.ini files that say something about "if the database files from the dbdir directory will be mirrored to a directory of the local machine".  This is set to zero in 1.1, and 1 in 1.2 and 1.3, probably related to the upgrade to server2go-version to 1.4.3 at Demo version 1.2.  So this is why it worked on my "dev" machine and not a "target" machine, and probably GauGau had the same issue?

Anyway, long story short I'll try to see if I can get it to work on both my machines, and then upload another zip file.

Also, anyone who's run the demos probably has a directory "C:\MyS2GApp" that gets left behind (this is where the server2go software was mirroring the MySQL databases).

Till later,
Andrew

Thanks for spotting the error and coming up with your fix. I´ll package a new version when I return home. I guess that this is related to the caching mechanisms of server2go, as I had version 1.1 running on my testbed where I created version 1.3. I will come up with a fresh, untampered package asap.

hello,

the pages on the demo look very nice; that begs the question: HOW did they get that way??

that's what a demo is for.

i'm not a computer programmer.  i'm not a web site developer.  i'm a small business owner.  i need a simple web site developing tool that does what i need it to do, with simple interfaces and easy to understand functions without a lot of jargon.  nice looking pages are fine; but your demo gives no indication about the real-world, step-by-step processes involved to build them, and no interactive way of testing out those processes.  or if it does, it's not obvious at all how - hardly a way to "provide a newbie-proof experience" for prosepective users.


and btw - i can't cut and paste on this page and your formatting buttons are disabled. 
Title: Re: Coppermine Live-Demo

Hi blackgem,

You might want to check out the documention and manual, that should answer most of your questions I think:
http://coppermine-gallery.net/demo/cpg14x/docs/index.htm

In particular, the Configuration and Administration section should get you started on the answers to your questions about how to get Coppermine to look the way you want.

The second place too look for answers would be the Frequently Asked Questions page:
http://coppermine-gallery.net/demo/cpg14x/docs/faq.htm

And of course the support forum itself:
http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php?board=46.0
Title: Re: Coppermine Live-Demo
Post by: Joachim Müller on September 17, 2007, 06:21:10 pm
@blackgem: not a good idea to ask for help on the announcement thread, where we clearly mentioned that the Live-Demo goes unsupported. The docs are being included with the Live-Demo as well. Please respect board rules. Don't force us to lock down each announcement thread simply becaise people like you ignore the rules and post their individual questions there.

Thanks to FirstDivision for pointing out that reading the docs is mandatory before even being allowed to post questions.

Version 1.4 of the Live-demo has been released - get it from the downloads section (https://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=89658) or download it directly by clicking here (http://downloads.sourceforge.net/coppermine/cpg_live-demo_1.4.zip). Here is the readme that contains the changelog as well:
Quote
Coppermine Photo Gallery - Live-Demo for Windows Desktops

====================

1. About Coppermine

-------------------

Coppermine is a multi-purpose fully-featured and integrated web picture gallery script written in PHP using GD or ImageMagick as image library with a MySQL backend.

It is free software (released under GNU GPL) which you can download and install on your webspace.



2. About this live-demo

-------------------

This live-demo that you're currently browsing is not the actual Coppermine package that you should run on your webserver/webspace. The sole purpose of this live-demo is to give you an impression how the admin backend of Coppermine looks and feels. It is only meant to be used for evaluation purposes. You mustn't run it as a production system, because it has deliberately been configured in an unsecure manner to provide a newbie-proof experience in the first place.



If you have downloaded this package in error and you are actually looking for the "real thing" (the production-ready application), go to the download section of the official Coppermine web page (http://coppermine-gallery.net/) and download the most recent stable release there.



2.1 No support

-------------------

The actual Coppermine release is well-documented and supported. However, this live-demo is not! It comes as-is, simply as a courtesy for the community. Do not clutter the coppermine support board or any other channels by requesting support on issues that are inherent to the live-demo.



2.2 Additional benefit

-------------------

Although the main purpose of this live-demo is evaluation, advanced Coppermine users may use it as well as a testbed for hacks/mods/plugins to test them before actually applying them on their production system. Keep in mind though that the webserver-configuration of this live-demo will no doubt differ from your production-gallery.

The live-demo can be particularly helpful to create and edit a custom-theme and test-drive it before actually appyling it to your production environment.



Before doing as suggested above, make sure that you have the skills to transfer your local changes to your production environment - it would be frustrating to have your changes applied to the live-demo and not being capable to transfer them to the production server, especially since you can't ask such questions on the Coppermine support board (remember: the live-demo goes unsupported!).



2.3 Recommendations

-------------------

This live-demo might give you the impression that running your own webserver on your desktop might be a good idea, as it appears to be working well for you. However, we don't recommend self-hosting at all. We're convinced that running a real, production-server available on the internet should only be done by professional admins who have the skills and time to maintain and monitor the webserver 24/7.



3. Technology

-------------------

The live-demo has been created using the tool server2go (http://www.server2go-web.de/), which is an app that allows you to create a portable webserver environment (using Apache, PHP, mySQL) for Windows. The software is donation-ware (everybody can use it for free, however you're asked to donate to the author). The Coppermine dev team would like to thank Timo Haberkern (the author of server2go) for providing this nice tool. It's mandatory though that you understand that the Coppermine group is not afiliated with server2go in any way - we do not provide support for it, and subsequently we don't support the live-demo.



3.1 No emails

-------------------

The server2go application does not come with a service to send emails. Therefor, you can't use any of the email-related functions that are built into Coppermine. Coppermine doesn't come with an email engine of it's own, it relies on the webserver it runs on to be configured to send emails.



Another limitation is the known issue of the browsable batch-add interface not working properly on Windows-driven servers. Therefor, you can't test-drive this feature using the live-demo. Most "real" production webservers are Linux/Unix-driven, so the limitation usually doesn't apply there.



3.2 Existing webserver

-------------------

If you already have an Apache webserver running on your desktop PC, you can't start another one. Therefor, you can't use the Live-Demo unless you end the other server first. Anyway: the Live-Demo is meant for people who don't have a webserver yet and want to test Coppermine first. It's not meant for people who already have a webserver running. Subsequently: if this known issue applies to you, then you shouldn't be running the Live-Demo.



3.3 Minimum requirements

-------------------

32-bit Windows (Windows98 or better)





3.4 Software versions

-------------------

The Live-demo is in fact a bunch of applications rolled into one. Below you will find the apps used in this version of the Live-demo. This is not the minimum requirements list for Coppermine.

    * Server2Go 1.5.1

    * Apache 2.0.58

    * PHP 5.2.3

    * mySQL server 5.0.41

    * mySQL client API 5.0.22

    * Coppermine 1.4.16

    * GD 2.0.34

    * FreeType 2.1.9



4. How to use

-------------------

OK, we understand that you didn't download the live-demo package just to read another page of boring instructions - just double-click on the start.exe. You can go back to this page at any time by clicking the link "Live-Demo documentation".



To log in as admin, use the username/password "admin"/"admin". To see what logged-in users can do, use the account "user" (password "user"). Please note that it would be silly and unsecure to name accounts this way in a real, production environment. It is only OK to do so in this testbed environment.



5. Changelog

-------------------



From Live-Demo 1.3 to 1.4

-------------------

*  Added some files to this package from the "official" Coppermine demo, mainly from the "artists wanted competition"

* Updated server2go-version to 1.5.1

* Updated coppermine-package integrated into the live-demo from cpg1.4.12 to cpg1.4.16

* Issues reported by end users about temporary files should be fixed

* Edited include/mailer.inc.php to deliberately "cripple" the mailing capabilities. Server2go doesn't come with capabilities to send emails, so the live demo can't neither

* Added a new splash screen





From Live-Demo 1.2 to 1.3

-------------------

* Fixed broken images

* Fixed custom header path

* Fixed broken link to demo on the documentation page





From Live-Demo 1.1 to 1.2

-------------------

* Updated coppermine-package integrated into the live-demo from cpg1.4.8 to cpg1.4.12

* Updated documentation

* Updated server2go-version to 1.4.3 (featuring Apache 2.0.58, PHP 5.2.3, MySQL 5.0.41)

* Added a small number of user-contributed plugins to illustrate the use



From Live-Demo 1.0 to 1.1

-------------------





6. Re-packaging

-------------------

In order to give this Live demo to others (e.g. when using a medium like an USB stick), you should delete the file server/php/php.ini after having shut down the server.

Live Demo version has not added last year's GSOC addings, isn't it? I can't find that plugins.

The gsoc contributions from 2007 came in after the 1.4 release, so they will be in 1.5.

The gsoc contributions from 2007 came in after the 1.4 release, so they will be in 1.5.
Clarification: Nibbler was refering to cpg1.4.x and cpg1.5.x, not to Live-Demo v1.4.
The Live-Demo is based on cpg1.4.x (as suggested in the docs that come with it).

Live Demo version has not added last year's GSOC addings, isn't it? I can't find that plugins.
The GSoC contributions don't come as a plugin, no matter what version.
Title: Coppermine Live-Demo v1.5 released (built against cpg1.4.18)
Post by: Joachim Müller on April 21, 2008, 02:22:14 pm
Version 1.5 of the Live-demo has been released - get it from the downloads section (https://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=89658) or download it directly by clicking here (http://downloads.sourceforge.net/coppermine/cpg_live-demo_1.5.zip). Compared to the live-demo v1.4 the only difference is the fact that live-demo v1.5 is being built against cpg1.4.18, while live-demo v1.4 used to built against cpg1.4.16
Since the live-demo is not meant for production use, the security impact does not apply. Anyway, you should upgrade your live-demo copy just to make sure that nothing bad can happen.

Do you know when version 1.5 will be released as a stable version?

This thread deals with the Live-Demo. It doesn't deal with cpg1.5.x. Don't spread one and the same question over multiple threads - you already got a reply in another thread: there is no scheduled release date for cpg1.5.x
Butt out of this thread with further questions related to cpg1.5.x - it will be released when it's ready. If you can't wait, check out the unsupported SVN version.
