What is Coppermine?
Coppermine is one of the most popular photo gallery scripts used by SiteGround customers. It runs with a mySQL database and has a rich set of features starting from basics such as arranging pictures in categories and albums, full multimedia support, option for private galleries, automatic thumbnail creation, and going to more complicated functionality such as easy customization to match your site’s layout and multi-language interface with automatic detection of language preferences.
