Share iPhoto libraries over the internet.

Overview

Web iPhoto Access... Share your iPhoto Libraries over the internet. As soon as you have uploaded pictures or movies from your camera to your library, you want these pictures to be available to your friends, family or whoever. WiPhA provides a powerful, beautiful and easy to use web interface to your libraries as well as automatic photocast of all your albums. Moreover, people can easily download a bunch of pictures and import them in their own iPhoto library with your captions and comments (for your lucky friends also using Mac).

WiPhA doesn't tax your computer in terms of cpu and memory usage. WiPhA also provides extensive search capabilities to easily browse your pictures, even in a big library.

Key Features

Full featured yet easy Web access to your iPhoto Libraries

  • Extensive search capabilities (albums, captions, comments, dates, keywords)
  • Unique "date map" feature to get a quick overview of the entire library and select the period to browse
  • Manual or automatic slideshow mode
  • Share multiple iPhoto libraries
  • Button to e-mail links to the photos you have displayed and to the associated photocast album
  • Display the full size pictures and EXIF data
  • Automatic update notification

Photocast your albums for free

  • Every Album is automatically photocast (rss feed) without requiring a .mac account!
  • Photocast may be used with iPhoto 6 or any RSS reader on any OS

Export pictures

  • Users can select multiple pictures and download them as a single zip
  • User can then import these pictures in an other iPhoto library and keep their captions and comments with the provided AppleScript

Enforce your privacy

  • WiPhA support user logins and password that you set
  • You determine which albums each user sees
  • Web access and photocast albums are both protected (with the same logins)
  • No direct access to files (all data are filtered before being delivered)

Standard compliant

  • XHTML 1.0
  • CSS2
  • RSS 2.0
  • Web 2.0 - Ajax

Light and fast

  • Ajax technology used to limit bandwidth usage and get faster responses
  • No need to have iPhoto running, or even to be logged in
  • No background process will be installed in your account
  • WiPhA relies on the iPhoto data (but doesn't modify it) as much as possible to avoid generating new thumb images
  • Generated data are cached and reused.

I did get the log-in page to load, after consulting the Leopard Finder "Help" menu. An Apple support article was listed that had the solution. An excerpt follows: =================== If you installed Mac OS X 10.5 via an Upgrade Install (the default type), follow these steps: Open TextEdit. Click the Format menu and click Make Plain Text. Then click OK. Copy the below text as is and paste it into the TextEdit document. Options Indexes MultiViews AllowOverride None Order allow,deny Allow from all Replace the word "myname" with your user account's shortname. (This is the same name as the user's Home folder in the Users folder.) Save the TextEdit document on the desktop with the name "myname.conf" where "myname" is the shortname. At the prompt, click "Use .conf". Quit TextEdit. In Finder, from the Go menu choose Go to Folder. Type in: /etc/apache2/users/ Click Go. Drag "shortname.conf" from the desktop into the Finder window for (/etc/apache2/users). At the prompt, click Authenticate. Enter the administrator username and password and click OK. Close the Finder window. Open Terminal. Enter this command on a single line, followed by Return: sudo chown root:wheel /etc/apache2/users/shortname.conf Enter your administrator password when prompted. Quit Terminal. Open System Preferences and click Sharing. Uncheck (deselect) Web Sharing to turn it off, then check Web Sharing to turn it back on. ============= This got me to the log-in page, but the default user name and password were not accepted, so I'm still stuck.

The developer of this PHP interface into an iPhoto Library is just fantastic. Really great work. It is extremely simple to install and configure. The only suggestion I have would be adding a "browse" button to find the path to the iPhoto Library being added to the list of available libraries. Here is the story of how this program has helped me: I am using this software to help my parents in the migration process from Windows XP to Mac OS X. I've been helping them migrate their photos from a large amount of folders into iPhoto. The caveat is that they still have one obsolete (and Windows only) program that they love for creating photo collages. I tried using a shared folder that they could simply drag items into, but it was just too "technical" for them. This simple web-based tool has enabled me to help them move their pictures into iPhoto, yet still access the ones they need when they want to use their one remaining Windows program. My thanks to the developer for a great and useful tool!

After installation, which appeared to be alright, my macbook pro (early 2008) wouldn't reboot normally. The installed screwed up my system. After checking the boot camp partition and repairing permissions for OS X (using install DVD) I could finally boot normally. I am really happy that I have my files back and would like to request a method for the restoration of Apache setting before the installer destroyed it. I can't recommend the application to anyone right now. Use Flickr, BubelShare or Picasa and save yourself the misery.

Hmm, would have been good but I get the same 'No permission' error. Tried deleting the server and reinstalling... no luck. Switched the webserver tab on and off... still no luck. Can't find anything on the site forum on how to fix it. Back to .mac I suppose or I'll look for something else online.

I am unable to install the program. It appears to be in the Sites folder, but the installer window keeps spinning at the configure Apache point. Any ideas? http://71.193.93.160/~williamoreilly/wipha1.png http://71.193.93.160/~williamoreilly/wipha.png I have an iMac Intel (10.4.7)
