First I want to thank the creators of this.  I love it.  I have been a Gallery user since it was created but looking for something better and I think I have found it.  Thank you!

Some of the things I like:

- Easy to create the site. (one click install on dreamhost, rsync the files, synchronize, done!  almost...)
- I love the OSM plugin.  The best integration so far.
- Photosphere!

Here's what I am doing and a few problems still.  First I maintain my archive of photos on a synology NAS at home.   I maintain that as my master copy of images.  I rsync to galleries/ and synchronize manually right now although once I get it working I can automate that. 

So far it mostly works but there's a few glitches.  Does anyone see something wrong in my approach?

1. Filenames -- I used detox to scrub the filenames so piwigo is happy.

2. rsync and synchronize time -- it takes 6-8 hours to rsync and about the same to synchronize.  piwigo times out the browser but I can see the task still running.  I think once I get smaller more incremental changes this will be less.  I was getting used to rsync at the same time.

3. There's a bug in displaying the original image for most but not all images:

  You don't have permission to access /galleries/Quixote/Ayer/SCN_0138.jpg on this server.
  Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the      request.

I don't see anything different in the file permissions (one idea is I lost galleries/index.php and got it back from github.  I might not have the right one?)

4. Image rotations -- This is a problem between the native raster orientation of the file, the metadata for orientation and whatever synology photostation is doing to rotate it.  I rotated a bunch there and it displays correctly there but the change doesn't carry through to piwigo.  I can sort this eventually but maybe there's a clue on this?  I don't want to rotate them on piwigo as I want to fix it in the original image on my NAS.

I will continue to fiddle with it but any help on #3 would be greatly appreciated.

I Sussed it.

The files had the same permissions but the directories didn't.  Dunno how that happened, something in the rsync probably.
