I’ve been thinking about hosting some sort of image repo/vault where myself and other family members would all have access to and be able upload their old pictures and scans along with tagging/adding descriptions.
I know my mom has a ton of old pics that she’d love to digitize and organize someplace and something like this would probably give her the motivation to finally do it. Storage space isn’t an issue as I can host it from home on my storage server and open it up for outside access.
Anyone have any software recommendations to make this happen? Self hosted is a must. Open source is preferred, but if I have to buy a license, so be it.
I’ve been using NextCloud for your exact use case for sometime now. Setup accounts for your family members and the whole thing just works. If you have a lot of files you would need a good CPU for NextCloud.
You can configure the system for allowing users to self singup and admin can also create users. You can toggle whatever the website is intended to be used by a community of users or just a sole user (like a photographer showcasing its work).
Perhaps you are thinking in multiuser as wordpress mu?
