Gallery2 performance boost

I had to convert a Gallery v1.5 photoalbum containing over 250 sub-albums and over 10.000 photo`s to Gallery 2.

While converting I noticed several thing`s weren`t going according to plan.

I added the following lines to the .htaccess file to make things run smooth;

php_value max_execution_time 0
php_value post_max_size 32M
php_value upload_max_filesize 32M
php_value memory_limit 64M

Within Gallery 2 changes the following settings:

  • Graphics Toolkits: GD
  • Performance: Max Acceleration

I also disabled thumbnail generating at import; I will do it at the end when everything is converted.
