Hey. Just starting to use ZenPhoto and hope all goes well as I want to put my galleries on my sites built on Dreamweaver.

I have put a database successfully, now I need to know how I can login in to Zenphoto. Will favourite it once I know how to use it and using MAMP as a local server if that helps.

Thinking ahead how do you put the gallery/ies onto a web page and do you use your own css for arrows, pages, etc or is there some to use?

Kind Regards

    Welcome. You login via pathtoyourinstallation/admin.

    If you want to make Zenphoto look like your site you will have to learn how to create (or modify) a theme to match it. Please read the tutorial here:

  • Sorry, what is the pathtoyourinstallation? where do you find the admin folder?

    It's either something like or
    There is no admin folder.

  • Ok, I found the file, one last thing. Does it need to be on the remote server? Currently on the testing server.

    I am not sure what you mean by this. You cannot just "move" something somewhere. You need to install Zenphoto as described on any server you wish to use it.

  • From my testing server to remote server, thought that was obvious. Do I have to do the whole reinstall again?!

  • acrylian Administrator, Developer

    Of course.

  • Fine, can I use the MySQL database that I have already created or do I need to do a new one?

  • acrylian Administrator, Developer

    You cannot use the one from your local testing server using MAMP with your remote server. Those are entirely different things.

    You need to setup a database as your webhost tells for the actual (remote) server. Then you could import the database form the local install. But please carefully re-read the info on our site as is basically the "migrating to another server" procedure.
