I recently purchased PhotoPost Pro and vBGallery (for $129).
I decided to go with vBGallery as the Photo Gallery software for my forums because it seems to have a tighter integration with vBulletin. Pro seems to be a standalone app made to work with vBulletin and I didn't want my users to have to deal with two profiles.
Anyway, vBGallery seems to be a sweet piece of software if I could only get it running on my forums.
I've been trying to install this all afternoon and it's driving me nuts!
The first time I tried to install it, I was following the installation directions from the installation link next to the product download link. Halfway through the installation, my forums went totally blank. I couldn't go anywhere at all, not even to the vbgallery_install.php file to uninstall it.
After I checked out the readme.html file that came with the product, I found out that there were quite a few files missing that I needed to upload so I did that. That allowed me to at least bring the vbgallery_install.php file up so that I could try and uninstall it, which I did.
This is where it gets weird and hopefully where someone can help me out. I was able to successfully install vBGallery this time and set the title of my Gallery, the paths and everything. Then, it brought me to my Admin panel (thought I was in the clear). I went to my forums to check out the gallery, then all of a sudden the pages just crashed. I mean CRASHED.
No pages are loading up at all. They just keep loading and finally after about ten minutes I get this error:
The specified CGI application exceeded the allowed time for processing. The server has deleted the process.
I searched around in the forums here and I found somewhere that I was supposed to upload everything in the folders "/forums" and "/gallery", which no where in either the installation link, nor the readme.html file it mentions this. I took one last try and removed all of the files associated with vBGallery and re-uploaded everything.
Could someone please help me out so that I can get my forums back up and running?
