Summer Project: Initial Setup and more Details

I’m still chugging along with the common elements on the project.

So, for the basics of what I have decided to do: Yep, it’s an image gallery.  It’s not too exciting and definitely nothing original.  There’ll be a basic authentication system (login/logout) with web based uploading and tagging.  That’s pretty much it.  The images that get uploaded will be stored in the database itself as a nice central location for all my different variants to get the data from.

As far as the initial setup goes, I’ve managed to get PostgreSQL installed, running, and I’ve even created the necessary tables for all that I need.  Yeah, that part was pretty simple.  But I can’t say it happened without learning something.  I’ve noticed that something I took for granted with MySQL wasn’t available right away for my installation of PostgreSQL.
