Occasionnally, I need to create a photo gallery on a LAMP server.

I'd like to find a no-brainer app that consists in a single PHP file, doesn't require a DB, and is able to create thumbnails the first time it's ran (it's OK if I have to manually call the app to pre-generate the thumbnails eg. www.acme.com/gallery/index.php?initialize=yes)

Does someone know of an application that does this?

Thank you.

You could try Single File PHP Gallery.

No database, thumbnail creation on the fly.

It won't of course ever be a fast has having a DB.

Thanks guys. Single File PHP Gallery is just what I was looking for. –  OverTheRainbow Jul 10 '09 at 9:19

MiniShowCase may suit your needs it is pretty simple and straightforward to make it work but is has many php files.

It doesn't quite fit the "single file" requirement, but Gallery1 is much lighter than Gallery2, and doesn't require a database.
