Bitnami Coppermine Stack
Bitnami Coppermine Stack is a multiplatform and free software project that makes it easy to deploy the Coppermine application and all of its runtime dependencies on desktop computers and laptops. The Coppermine stack from Bitnami is distributed as native installers for all mainstream operating systems, LAMP/WAMP/MAMP modules, a virtual appliance, cloud images and a Docker container.
What is Coppermine?
Coppermine is a free and platform-independent web-based application that has been designed from the offset to act as a multi-purpose and full-featured picture gallery script written in the PHP programming language and using the GD or ImageMagick as image library, with a MySQL backend.
Coppermine includes user management, support for private galleries, automatic thumbnail generation, an ecard functionality and a template system for easy customization to match the rest of a website.
Installing Bitnami Coppermine Stack
To install the Coppermine application and its server-related requirements on your PC, you will have to first download the package that corresponds to your computer’s hardware architecture (32-bit or 64-bit), run it and follow the instructions displayed on the screen.
Run Coppermine in the cloud
Thanks to Bitnami’s pre-build cloud images for the Amazon EC2 and Windows Azure cloud hosting providers, users will be able to run their own Coppermine stack server in the cloud with their hosting platform or with any other supported cloud provider.
The Coppermine virtual appliance and Docker container
Besides the cloud images and native installers, Coppermine can be virtualized using Bitnami’s pre-built virtual appliance based on the latest stable release of the Ubuntu Linux operating system and designed to work with the Oracle VirtualBox and VMware ESX, ESXi virtualization software. A Coppermine Docker container is also available for download on the project’s site.
The Bitnami Coppermine Module
The Bitnami Coppermine Module product will allow users to deploy only the Coppermine application on personal computers, without having to download and install its runtime dependencies. It is available for download on Softpedia, free of charge.
