Coppermine is an opensource stack powered Photo Gallery and a one click solution by bitnami. It is secure, multipurpose, and full featured gallery. Coppermine is a platform that could run on the cloud - locally or virtually. If any issues occur, it is capable of automatically fixing that, so basically it is error free.
