I installed Galaxy using Mercurial (and re-installed several times to try and resolve this issue) and don't have a universe_wsgi.ini file anywhere on my hard drive (no universe_wsgi.ini.sample either, for that matter). I'm using Python 2.7.5 and Mac OS 10.9.4, and my local Galaxy instance runs just fine, but I want to install tools from a toolshed, which requires me to modify my nonexistent universe file.


I've tried goggling "universe_wsgi.ini", but the only file I could find gave "ConfigurationError: Tool config file not found: ./tool_conf.xml" on my attempts to start it up. My lab-mate who uses Galaxy says this isn't normal, and it shouldn't even be able to start without a universe ini file. What do I do?

With the latest release, galaxy's configuration files have moved into the config directory of your galaxy installation by default.  Older releases will continue to work with the old-style files and paths, but new galaxy directories will have, for example, a config/galaxy.ini to replace the old universe_wsgi.ini.

Your new distribution will contain a config/galaxy.ini.sample file that you can copy to config/galaxy.ini and make changes to in the same way you'd previously edit universe_wsgi.ini.
