System Requirements

We recommend a modern computer with at least 2 cores and 4 GB of memory for running PhotoPrism. Indexing large photo and video collections significantly benefits from fast, local SSD storage and enough memory for caching.

If you're running out of memory, limit the number of workers and make sure the server has swap configured, so that indexing doesn't stop when there are memory usage spikes. As a measure of last resort, you may additionally disable image classification using TensorFlow.


When installing PhotoPrism on a public server outside your home network, please always run it behind a secure HTTPS reverse proxy like Caddy, Traefik, or Nginx. Your files and passwords will be transmitted in clear text otherwise, and can be intercepted by anyone in between including your provider, hackers, and governments.
