Photo Gallery Meltdown

I thought it would be a good idea to upgrade to the latest version of Coppermine, the PHP, mySQL based photo gallery software I use in conjunction with the rest of the site. Was there any good reason to? Was anything broke? Did I need all of the couple new features they added? No. So, that’s why I did it. It made perfect sense. (Confusing, ain’t it?) So, anyhow. . . I upgrade it. Then, after I upgrade, I find out that the theme that took me weeks to create — to match the rest of the site — didn’t work with the new version. Not good! I started have that bad feeling you get when you know you’re screwed. Why? Because the new version modified the mySQL database — which is the foundation for the entire gallery. I made the attempt to “go backwards” and reinstall a prior version, using a version that was compatible with my theme. Things looked good at first. . . at first. About 90% of the gallery’s functionality remained intact, the other was kaput. This left me with no other choice other than rebuilding. In the end, it was all for the best as the gallery is now back up, organized better, and using a newer, more secure version of the software than it was prior. So, things are good once again.

I did loose all of the comments, ratings, and views — which, in all, was no big loss since no one even bothered to comment or rate anything. But, now that things are back up, clean, organized, & working, I ask you all a favor. . .

Go into the gallery and rate 5 pictures you like. (Click on the stars – under the intermediate sized pictures.) It’ll take you all just a couple of minutes. And, it’ll give me a good idea of which pics might be worth working a bit more on, printing, and hanging on the wall.

Your patronage is kindly appreciated.

    Yes, I did rate that crap Owen picture. . . A 1 would’ve done; negative 5 if it was offered.
