phpix --- a php-based web photo album




This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

phpix is a web photo album which enables you to easily publish your pictures on your website.

Using php and ImageMagick or the gd library phpix creates thumbnails, thumbnail pages and a site navigation.

If ImageMagick is used for resizing the images, the pictures can also be rotated to the right angle. The preferred display angle is saved automatically for each image.


To add your own picture album to phpix, create a new folder in /var/www/phpix/albums and put the pictures in it. That's pretty much it. You can see the pictures generated by phpix at:



There should be a link to the new created folder.

In case you want to create a new instance of phpix in a different folder, please read phpix-create-new-instance (1).


The following options can be configured in the file /etc/phpix/

Can be set to "im" or "gd"
Can be set to true or false


phpix-create-new-instance (1), apache (8), convert (1).
