Gallery releases the Gallery Virtual Appliance
We are proud to announce the availability of version 1.0 of the The Gallery Virtual Appliance. It contains Gallery version 1.5.4 and 2.1.2 (the current latest).
The Gallery VMware Appliance is a GNU/Linux distribution based on rPath Linux. Basically, it is a LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) appliance with both Gallery 1 and Gallery 2 pre-installed and pre-configured, along with all of the required utilities and most of the optional ones. They are both pre-loaded with some random pictures from various Gallery team members so that you can test things out without even having to find your own images.
This enables users to test and play around with a complete Gallery environment without having to install all the prerequisites on their local computer or hosting space. To run the Appliance, you'll need one of VMware 5.5+ Workstation, VMware Player 1.0+, or VMware Server 1.0.
