In the first place it's dangerous to run an outdated gallery. Most recent stable release currently is cpg1.4.14, so you better upgrade asap.

Stop spreading your SEF_URLs related questions all over the forum. I already answered your identical question in another thread.

It's not 'dangerous'. It's just unsupported, which means if you come back and say 'it doesn't work' then we will just say 'uninstall it then'.

It doesn't affect the database at all and the number of pics you have is not relevant.

so all it does is make a folder with a lot of files in it all.html that each take the information out of my database each time they egt opened instead of using a query string it will only take information without generating the whole page

please tell me if i get this right

PS there is no problem with that folder and the ftp i will not use it at all

No, that's wrong. All it does is rewrite the link format to give the illusion of individual html pages.

I already told you it doesn't affect the database. If you get an error when you install then you just delete the .htaccess file it created.
