I am having few questions regarding galaxy installation.


1. I want to configure production server for local LAN. Can I configure current galaxy installation so that many users can login to it ?

2. As per tutorial, do I really need new "non-root" linux user called as "galaxy" which will have galaxy setup? If yes ( that means, I need to have new user and new installation), then what about my old galaxy installation ? 

3. What will happen if

     -   I run old galaxy from my linux user account


     -   I run new installation from galaxy user account.


which one galaxy will be shown if browser browses my IP Address ?


Waiting for positive reply.


Thank You.

1. Absolutely. The default configuration for Galaxy allows new users to freely register accounts. You will need to configure the IP Galaxy is listening on, by changing universe_wsgi.ini from:

#host =


host =

2. The user doesn't specifically need to be named "galaxy", but it's a good idea to do so in order to keep personal and Galaxy data separate.

3. If both are configured to run on the same port, only the first one you run will successfully start up. If they are configured with different ports, users can access whichever one they prefer by specifying the port when they browse to your IP.

I was able to run both the galaxy on same system with two different user.


- which was having old galaxy installation.

- I have changed host to:

and port to: 8081

so that it can be accessible for my system.


Then I have created user called "galaxy"

- its host: and port: 8080.

- so now I am using new installation from other systems.
