I am looking for an open source php gallery that will support my already existing database for users or is simple enough to configure. I have checked a lot of opensource programs but they seem to lack this functionality. If you have had the same problem and worked it out, I would appreciate your help.
The only requirment I have that it should work with my users database.

Did you try Coppermine ?

Please give elfe69 the credit, but I concur. I have, myself, for clients integrated coppermine with their other applications.

This is not just a 'plug and play' solution, however (if you are looking to integrate the gallery with another application)... You'll need some coding to pass user info between the two.

If you simply have a database of users and you want to import them into the coppermine db - then this is a piece of cake.

Coppermine has a lot of bridges to other applications, you can look at what is done, for example in the phpBB bridge, and adapt it to build your own bridge.
