I am using multiple web servers behind a load balancer, all hooked to a dedicated database server. I would like to install the gallery and the links in a separate new server. This new server does have a link to the database, but it does not have the forums files and does not host the forums. In Photopost I can specify the db ip address if it is not localhost. Can this be done with your gallery setup?

Gallery uses the forum files/functions, so it would need access to the PHP files. It's integrated into vBulletin, rather than being an external application that just reads the vBulletin database, like PhotoPost.

You may be able to get away with just copying a few of the key files it needs, so that it will run on your separate server. Brian will have to speak to that...

yes, I dont mind copying a few of the files to that server, but Id like that server strictly dedicated to gallery/links.

Would you mind telling me what exactly would you be testing to see if it works? :)
