Some findings with Daminion 0.8.9.477
First of all, Happy New Year! :)
I've been testing the latest Daminion version (0.8.9.477) and wanted to share some findings:
- I was previously using version 0.8.8.471, after upgrading to latest version and adding an already cataloged folder, I got every catalog item duplicated.
- After adding and playing with some pictures on the catalog, I tried to remove all pictures from the catalog (selected all items and clicked Del), items were removed but the Folder item in the catalog tags tree showed 2 items (selecting the node didn't show any item)
With this, I felt the catalog was ready to be recreated but couldn't though of the best way to recreate it (is there a best way to do it?), so I uninstalled Daminion Server and Postgre with some other findings:
-If I set a user account for Daminion service, install shows an error saying the user doesn't have rights to the Daminion's data folder. I have to manually add my user full rights to the just created folder (this doesn't happen if the folder with explicit rights to the folder already exists)
-On this same setting (user account for service), install seems to not work if using other format for the username, for instance: ".\User" and "server\User" doesn't work, while "User" works.
-For some reason server's install wasn't creating Daminion's catalog database, I couldn't find any log item talking about an error and tried uninstalling/installing several times, after some tries what worked was to run Daminion's server install three times (without uninstalling), on the first one only a "postgre" database existed, after the second one, an empty (no tables) _daminion database was created, and with the third one the NetCatalog database was successfully created. Not sure why this happens but it has happened to me before (I think everytime I install :P), has anyone experienced something similar?
- After playing a little bit with picture tagging I noticed it adds "Daminion ® http://daminion.net;" to the author file field, is there a way to disable this?
I will test some more and share new findings.
P.S. I wasn't able to upload screenshots as I'm already using my quota, can I get a bigger quota?
