Playing with Piwigo as a Google Photos replacement this morning. It's... ok, but I feel like it's going to be too hard to manage. Does anyone have a better recommendation? I really just want to be able to control my photo storage and be able to access from anywhere and share only with my wife.
The Nextcloud instance probably just needs more RAM/processing power for that many photos to upload. If you can’t give it more resources, then I would copy it to the Nextcloud server via an external drive or via SSH and then move it to the appropriate directory for your Nextcloud user.
Even if they are in the right directory, Nextcloud would have to rescan your files to see the photos, which you would trigger using the occ command.
I understand. Photos is probably my last major service of Google that I consistently rely on. And due to convenience in sharing for family, I don’t know if I could make the switch. They always are butthurt from me recommending they download *another* secure application.
@chris Try MEGA or something like that
@chris Honestly, the only competent alternative I've found for my use is Synology Moments. But you need a DiskStation NAS.
@jccpalmer I have a feeling that's where this is all leading. Was just hoping to not have to add any hardware to the house for a while.
