If Lychee is not working properly, try to open
plugins/Diagnostics/index.php. This script will display all errors it can find.
To run Lychee, everything you need is a web-server with PHP 5.5 or later and a MySQL-Database.
If you experience problems uploading large photos, you might want to change the PHP parameters in
.htaccess (if you are using the PHP Apache module) or in
.user.ini (if you are using PHP >= 5.5 with CGI or FastCGI).
If possible, change these settings directly in your
php.ini. We recommend to increase the values of the following properties:
max_execution_time = 200 post_max_size = 100M upload_max_size = 100M upload_max_filesize = 20M memory_limit = 256M
Lychee supports the latest versions of Google Chrome, Apple Safari, Mozilla Firefox, Opera and Microsoft Internet Explorer. Make sure you are always running the newest version.
You can upload
Take a look at the Changelog to see what's new.
Thumbnails are chosen automatically by the photos you have starred and in the order you uploaded them. Star a photo inside an album to set it as a thumbnail.
To backup your Lychee installation you need to do the following steps:
No. Lychee has it's own folder-structure and database. Please upload or import all your photos to use them.
No. Video support is not planned.
Yes. Lychee uses ImageMagick when available.
There's a problem with images compressed by ImageOptim. Read more.
Simply delete the whole
lychee_settings table from the database. Lychee will regenerate it and ask you to enter a new username and password.
