Hi, I am a Bioinformatics student (MSc) at VU university Amsterdam, and currently working as a trainee at Leiden University Medical Center. I had a lot of trouble installing galaxy, but finally found out that I had an 'old' version of pysqlite: /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/pysqlite- 1.0.1.egg-info I downloaded a newer version somewhere: pysqlite-2.3.4.egg-info and installed it in the same directory, but that still didn't do the trick Then I removed the old 1.0.1 package (actually I renamed it), and then all things worked, but I don't think this is the proper way to do it. Does anyone have suggestions how to do this the right way? I installed this on a PC which runs under Linux/Ubuntu 7.10 operating system Regards, Gerard Schaafsma Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Sorry for the cross-posting, but I guess that's also interesting to Galaxy users... I've been thinking about input validation too... only a bit more generally, on a server/production basis. Nate, on your production setup[1] (galaxy main), do you use any kind of filter or framework a la modsecurity[2] to prevent security issues on third party tools ? How do you mitigate those security risks ? [1] [2]

Hi Roman, We don't run modsecurity because we don't run Apache, but tools do perform input validation, and parameters are santized of any shell special characters. In addition, tools only have write access to their own datasets and working directory. --nate
