Gallery login



When you use the Gallery login (the non-administrator one), then you will be brought to the Gallery page. The login link is in the top right corner. When you click on that link you will see the following login dialog:

Type in the administrator username and password, then click on the Login button to proceed.

Logging into Gallery with the Administrator URL

The Administrator URL is provided when you complete the Softaculous setup of Gallery.  If you’re logging into the application for the first time, then you may see a screen like this:

The login link can be seen in the top right corner.  When you click on that link you will see the same login dialog as above:

Type in the administrator username and password, then click on the Login button to proceed.

You will then see the Gallery application as an administrator.  Here’s an example of what you will see as an administrator:
