Command-Line Interface

The photoprism help (or photoprism --help) command lists all supported subcommands and config options available in the current version:

./photoprism help

Run the following to display all global config options and their current values:

./photoprism show config

You can also use the photoprism show command to display supported search filters, file types, thumbnail sizes, and metadata tags:

./photoprism show --help

Config Options

You can either use environment variables like PHOTOPRISM_CACHE_PATH, config files (in the storage/config directory) or command line parameters like --cache-path to change the value of config options.

Changes to the config options always require a restart to take effect. For development purposes, you do not need to change any settings if you followed the steps described under Build Setup.
