Backend for Autoviewer 2.03

Backend for Autoviewer (BfA) is a nifty little multi-gallery management script for Autoviewer image slideshow widget. Since often times hosting providers don’t offer the latest in PHP and MySQL I have downconverted the original object-oriented implementation to a fully procedural one that should work with most hosts. I’m also in the progress of re-writing the whole script, but I wanted to offer 2.03 interim solution to those of you who would like to try the latest iteration.

I’ve been very glad to hear that people have found actual commercial use for BfA . There is at least couple of sites already in production. People have also extended the script with some pretty cool features by themselves. I haven’t included the extensions to the distribution, but if you like I can get you in contact with some talented developers.  I was also happy to find that  using the backend does not interfere with artistic choices. Embedding Autoviewer script to web pages has not gotten more complicated. Updating the site is now just easier with a simple publishing tool.

    To be honest not much work has gone to the rewrite yet. I have been too busy with playing TF2 and other “important” business. Eventually I will get to it once I get a little nudge. I think wordpress integration would be in order.

    Could be caused by lot of things, but to me it sounds like you do not have a database called mydatabase setup. Create the database with user that has table create rights and change the database name and appropriate credentials in the config file. Change the user rights back after running the script and you should be all set.
