About Mejiro

Mejiro is an easy-to-use single-file PHP web app for instant photo publishing.




Installation and Usage

  1. Install the required packages. On Debian and Ubuntu, this can be done by running the following command as root: apt install apache2 php5 php5-gd curl git
  2. In the terminal, switch to the root directory of the server (e.g., /var/www/html) and use the git clone command as root to fetch the latest source code. Alternatively, you can download the ZIP archive and extract it into the document root of the server.
  3. Open the index.php file in a text editor and edit settings. This step is optional.
  4. Put photos into the photos directory (.jpg, jpeg, .JPG, and .JPEG files only).
  5. Make the mejiro directory writable by the server using the chown www-data -R mejiro command as root.
  6. Point the browser to (replace with the actual IP address or domain name of your server).

You can add descriptions to photos by creating accompanying .txt files. For example, to add a description to the F994362-R1-14-15.jpg photo, create the F994362-R1-14-15.txt file containing a short text. You can use HTML markup for formatting the text. To add description files in other languages, use the appropriate language prefix as follows: de-F994362-R1-14-15.txt (for German), ja-F994362-R1-14-15.txt (for Japanese), etc.

To enable the expiration feature, change the $expire = false; line in the index.php script to $expire = true; and specify the desired expiration period by modifying the $days variable.
