I have successfully installed the Galaxy on my MAC and was able to run sh to open Galaxy in the web interface, but my terminal crashed and when I went back and wanted to open Galaxy again it tells me that sh command not in the directory. The $ git clone -b release_17.09 has installed. Is there a way to uninstall and try to install again?

Please help.

Are you running the command inside the galaxy directory installed by git? If not, try that first.

If the command then gives a new error, and it might if the prior process running did not entirely shut down, you should kill the process completely, then start up Galaxy again. This is how:

It is always possible to delete the existing galaxy directory and reinstall, but that shouldn't be necessary unless somehow the installation itself became corrupted during the crash.

Give these options a try and please let us know if you need more help.

Thanks, Jen, Galaxy team
