I'm in the process of setting up a web based photo album, so I have somewhere to display the photos I take with my new camera.

I found a few different ones, like "yappa-ng" and "gallery2", and a couple of commercial services, "smugmug" and "pbase", but I don't like paying for things I can do myself for free.

gallery2 needs a db backend, like mysql or postgresql, and I'm not sure if I've got access to either of those on my host (and I don't intend to upload so many photos that it would need to be db driven anyway).

I went with yappa-ng, I did an initial install, and uploaded a couple of photos, it seems pretty good.

I'll have to reinstall it, because I accepted all the default settings, just to get it running, and there are things I want to customise.

Once I've reinstalled it, and configured it properly, then I'll post a URL to it.
