Image - Limits
« on: May 29, 2010, 05:54:20 pm »

Which the limit of images supported by coppermine? I have 480,000 images to upload. This is why we place a particular server. And These pictures are changed once a week. Each week 3.000 images are changed. Will I be able to upload a batch of this size?

Please post a link to your gallery as requested in board rules. Also, the documentation might be useful.

Sorry.

That site doesn't have a gallery, it just shows "It works!". There might be limitations from the image libraries.

Reading this might also help (even if it's written to cpg 1.4. board).

You're not the first person to ask about a limitation built into Coppermine. The answer remains the same, no matter how often someone asks it:
I'm not aware of such a huge install where Coppermine runs out of the box. I'm pretty sure that you will have to optimize Coppermine's queries and remove some resource eaters like random meta albums and constant stats totals. You will definitely need a powerfull dedicated server.
I have no idea how many pics reside on huge installs like gelipo.com, but they are far from out of the box anyway. The correct answer is: there is no limitation built into coppermine itself in the aspect how many images it can handle. But there certainly are several limiting factors in resources consumption as far as web server resources are concerned.
There is no limitation built into coppermine how many categories there can be, no how many sub-categories or albums can reside within a category - the number is theoretically unlimited (of course there are limitations depending on your webserver's resources)
As suggested, there is no limitation in coppermine's code
There's no limitation built-into coppermine, but your webserver probably has it's limitations.
So, to answer the question imposed by this thread's subject: no.
Also read up our suggestions on self-hosting: http://documentation.coppermine-gallery.net/en/requirements.htm#what_minimum_self-hosting
Future requests of yours that don't respect board rules will get ignored.

There might be limitations from the image libraries.
That's not correct: limitations from image libraries will not have an impact on the number of images you can host. The limiting factors or others. There are quite a few of them:
  • webspace
  • file system on operating system level
  • database size


You probably won't be able to host such a huge amount of images using self-hosting unless you have the hardware and know how clustering works, as one machine probably will not have the power to host 480 k images.

 I really think that the question has been answered. I appreciated the contribution of Mr. Joachim Müller, research and contribution to this response. Timely put in my portal. Thank you very much for your contribution. In the specific case, I'm using a Dell PowerEdge server with Xeon processor, 2 hd 250 GB, 2 GB memory with the operating system Opensuse 11.2. Technically I will not have problems with space, because I can grow when needed.

Thanks to all who contributed.

You'll run into issues with the database - a mysql database with so many records causes issues. Read up the other thread I refered to (click on the "Quote from..." links). 2 GB RAM is not much. A single Xeon probably isn't enough neither. Anyway: self-hosting sucks.
