Photo Gallery Move Completed!

Over the past several weeks, I have been working on moving my Photo Gallery site from my test server onto my production server – that move is now officially complete!

To move the gallery I had to take the test site down, install and configure the gallery software on the server, then I had to import the database and photo directories from the test site into the new site. After moving everything to the new server, I had to process all of the pictures again to re-register them in the database tables, a process that took over 22 hours by itself! The site move should be complete now and, hopefully, I won’t have to do anything nearly as drastic with the site for some time to come. You might want to update your link to the gallery if you had it bookmarked, there are also two ways to get to the gallery now: you can browse to it directly at or you can click on the “Photo Gallery” button on the left there to view the gallery embedded in this site. I hope you enjoy the pictures!

It would also be a good idea to create a user account for the gallery site or this site (the two sites synchronize user accounts on a given schedule, so creating an account on one will eventually and automatically create an account on the other). A user account will have access to more albums and other resources than an unregistered user.

Change is in the Air…

You’ve probably noticed that, since the first of this month, my personal web site has changed from static html pages to a dynamic site based on Joomla! content management software.

I have migrated this site to Joomla! after successfully implementing it at Yamaha of Millington. Another change I made was that I moved my photo gallery from a test server to the production server that serves up the pages for this site. There are two ways to get to the gallery now: either directly at, or by visiting the gallery that is embedded in this site – by clicking on the “Photo Gallery” button to the left there. I’ll continue to make changes and improvements to this site and I’ll be adding more photo albums as time allows. I hope you like the changes I’ve already made and that those changes will keep you coming back.
