Hello Galaxy community :)

I need your help to solve a problem that drives me crazy for few days.

I have installed a local instance of Galaxy on a VM (CentOS 6.5). And it worked until shortly.  I logged out from my Galaxy admin account to connect to another account that I created before (to test the different permissions on librairies).

Since then I'm not able to connect with any user account.
I encounter the same problem discussed here Problems with login into local Galaxy instance
It seems the window refreshes to the welcome page, and I can't login even as admin.

I try to start (Git clone) another instance of Galaxy on the same VM (start fresh with the galaxy.ini.sample first, then with my own galaxy.ini since I made no adjustements before I get this error). On both cases, I still get the same problem.

Since the login information is stored in the database (I kept the default database), I installed Postgresql and change database_connexion in galaxy.ini. When I restart the instance, it seems to load the new database without any problem, but still I can't login.

Additional information : I'm a newbie (with Galaxy and its environment, and also in english but I hope I was clear enough).

Thank you for your help !

Nice sounds wired! Can you please remove also your browser cache or use a different one? Btw. which one are you using? If you remove/change your database you need to create a new user. Can you create new user?

Thank you for your answer!

I use Firefox and I regularly clean the browser cache (since I tested the tutorial on integrating perl script in the tool shed : the new tool did not appear in the left panel when it seemed to be recognized while charging Galaxy).
I can try with another browser (not chrome because I think it no longer supports CentOS 6).

My login problem occured with the default sqlite database. When I started the second instance of Galaxy I tried to register with the same email address that I used for the first instance. But I got a warning message that says this email address was already used. I don't know how sqlite manage the users authentification. I thought it depended on the instance of Galaxy but apparently not.

I restarted my instance this morning (with the default sql database -> I removed the postgresql DB last week since it didn't solve my problem) trying to register with the same email address and I got a "now logged in as ****@***.com".

Galaxy makes fun of me.

But still I would like to know where the problem lies.
When you say "create a new user" did you mean a sql user (created after the installation of postgresql) or a Galaxy user (created through the graphic interface) ?

Depending on your postgresql version, it can be that you need to deactivate PBKDF in your galaxy.ini.
