- To display Juicebox galleries you need a website and a way to upload files (usually via FTP). We do not host image galleries on our servers
- Password Protection and Image Download features require PHP version 5.2 (or higher) on the web server. The vast majority of web servers run this version of PHP. To find out which version of PHP your server runs, please check with your web server tech support, or follow these instructions.
Upgrading to Pro
You can easily upgrade an existing Juicebox-Lite gallery to Pro at any time.
To convert a Juicebox-Lite gallery to Juicebox-Pro, open and re-save the gallery using JuiceboxBuilder-Pro. Alternatively you can replace the
jbcore folder in the existing gallery folder with the one that comes in the Juicebox-Pro download
Please note that JuiceboxBuilder-Lite and JuiceboxBuilder-Pro can be installed and run alongside each other on the same computer.
