Post subject:  Definition of user access restrictions


I'm very concerned about security and abuse of this webservice. Maybe I'm too concerned, but this should not be discussed in this thread.

OK, my webserver Nginx is running on Raspberry Pi, and therefore I decided to choose software with less resource requirement.

However, I would like to define at least the following access restrictions:
1. Only "registered" users can access the WebUI of TWG, means the users get kind of a logon screen to enter the personlized user credentials, and only after validation they can access the library.
2. Registered users can only access folders for which they have the permission to.
3. Users can only view pictures in the WebUI, they cannot modify and certainly not download the pictures, but only give comments (and ratings).

Which restrictions can be applied to TWG?

1 and 2

Images can always be downloaded. Simply make a screenshot or use and e.g. Firefox extension like webdeveloper.
comments can be restricted to registered users only but if only registered users have access this does not mattef.

OK, thanks.

Can you provide some input how to realize point 1 and 2?

See the howto

1 is the global protection
2 is the user based galleries.
