Random Picture From Your Coppermine Gallery


Recommended Posts

You'll need to put in your username, password and database name and may need to tweak the file path to match your setup. Save this to a file called randompic.php and put a tag in a page like this:

><img src="randompic.php">



header("Content-type: image/png");

//Select random thumbnail file.
$link = mysql_connect('localhost', 'username', 'PASSWORD')
or die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
mysql_select_db('album_db') or die('Could not select database');

// Performing SQL query
$query = "SELECT filepath, filename FROM cpg135_pictures ORDER BY rand() limit 1";

$result = mysql_query($query) or die('Query failed: ' . mysql_error());
$line = mysql_fetch_array($result, MYSQL_ASSOC);
$filepath = 'album/albums/' . $line['filepath'];
$filename = $line['filename'];

$thumbnail_img = imagecreatefromjpeg($filepath . '/' . $filename);
