You can run a production site with it if you're feeling brave, but it's not recommended. If there is a feature here, and not in the stable branch, that's probably because the feature doesn't work yet :P Requirements ~~~~~~~~~~~~ MySQL 4.1+ PHP 5.0+ GD or ImageMagick There is no PHP4 support, because it lacks many useful features which make shimmie development easier, faster, and less bug prone. PHP4 is officially dead, if your host hasn't upgraded to at least 5, I would suggest switching hosts. I'll even host galleries for free if you can't get hosting elsewhere for whatever reason~ Installation ~~~~~~~~~~~~ 1) Create a blank database 2) Unzip shimmie into a folder on the web host 3) Visit the folder with a web browser 4) Enter the location of the database 5) Click "install". Hopefully you'll end up at the welcome screen; if not, you should be given instructions on how to fix any errors~ Upgrade from 2.2.X ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Should be automatic, just unzip into a clean folder and copy across config.php, images and thumbs folders from the old version. This includes automatically messing with the database -- back it up first! Upgrade from earlier versions ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I very much recommend going via each major release in turn (eg, 2.0.6 -> 2.1.3 -> 2.2.4 -> 2.3.0 rather than 2.0.6 -> 2.3.0). While the basic database and file formats haven't changed *completely*, it's different enough to be a pain. Development Info ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ http://shimmie.shishnet.org/doc/ Please tell me if those docs are lacking in any way, so that they can be improved for the next person who uses them Contact ~~~~~~~ #shimmie on Freenode -- IRC webmaster at shishnet.org -- email http://redmine.shishnet.org/projects/show/shimmie2 -- bug tracker Licence ~~~~~~~ All code is GPLv2 unless mentioned otherwise; ie, if you give shimmie to someone else, you have to give them the source (which should be easy, as PHP is an interpreted language...). If you want to add customisations to your own site, then those customisations belong to you, and you can do what you want with them.
