Debian and Redhat binary packages are also available; the source tarball can be used to rebuild them yourself if you prefer.
If you are running Debian woody (stable), you can use the following line in your sources.list:
deb http://www.photopub.org/apt woody main
Please note that this is poorly documented (to the point that you may have to read the source to understand how to configure it), alpha-quality software. Before installing, you should be aware of the following specific issues that we do know about (as well as the obvious warning about potential issues we don't):
- The Redhat package will edit your httpd.conf file - if you don't want this, use --noscripts when you install (the Debian package will ask via debconf first).
- Whatever partition you use for cache files (/var/cache/photopub by default) is vulnerable to being filled up by lots of requests for different photos.
- If your users are given access to PhotoPub (this happens when you edit the appropriate line in /etc/photopubrc) they could potentially abuse it to read any file the webserver can read.
Releases should be signed (in a separate signature file) with Ganesh Sittampalam's PGP key, keyid 0x80883801.
