Migration of Images from Gallery 2.3 to Coppermine 1.4x
« on: April 19, 2009, 06:03:20 pm »

Hello all,

I have been looking around for a substitute for my existing gallery located at www.euadvantage.com/gallery2 and Coppermine seems to fit the bill, is there a way of migrating my existing images from gallery to Coppermine perhaps a tool of some sort

I am brand new to Cpg so any help with this matter would be greatly appreciated

Take a look at this thread.

I've never tried this myself as I have never bothered woth Menalto Gallery 2 but it should be straight forward.

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.

Thanks for an excellent convertor Aditya

It all seems to have worked fine with my Gallery 2.3 conversion to to cpg 1.4.20
Thanks for your report. Any particular reason for using the outdated cpg1.4.20 and not the currently supported stable release cpg1.4.21?
The reason for using CPG 1.4.20 is simply because it is the most up to date version available from my web hosting company at the moment, for a first look at Coppermine I used their Fantastico installation for speed, if Coppermine is as good at it appears to be, I will most certainly remove that installation and manually install the most recent version, I will also include the Coppermine DB tables in my main database rather than, as with most Fantastico Installations in a separate database.
Fantastico sucks. Upgrade as we suggest in our docs. For details why, read up http://documentation.coppermine-gallery.net/en/auto-installers.htm and http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php/topic,58309.0.html
Running outdated versions is not an option.

Thank you very much for the links you provided
