I'm interested in a Docker or mail-in-a-box simple image hosting solution. People should be able to install it on an AWS host or the like, create a personal account, then drag and drop / upload images to the appliance and be able to get image links for hot-linking in forums. Only the owner / people with accounts should be able to browse the full set of images.
I'm not looking for a blog. Everything I've seen with using blogs for image hosting is: it's not easy. It's not install software and it works. It's managing a bunch of plugins and no great linking options.
Imgur offers very few features, a very simple interface, but uploads and linking is easy. Imgur also has terms of service that forbid certain usages. Hence the ask.
What's out there?
Looking around here, at first I just saw Joomla hype, but then I started to find Owncloud hype:
That looks like an interesting project, but too much and too complicated for what I'm looking for. So: what is there that's "Owncloud lite"? Anyone? Bueller? Imgur continues to make changes that make it less suitable, but an easy to deploy an use alternative remains elusive.
