Dear Galaxy users
I am trying to cut a tab delimited file using the cut option under text manipulation. When the columns I wish are cut out, the resultant file contains only '.' (dots) where the data was in the previous file.
Any ideas how to resolve this problem?
I can't find out how to use the dropdown "User type" which is displayed
after I select User > Register in the start page of Galaxy. Do I have to
define the types myself? Are they pre-set? The dropdown menu just says
"Select one", but the options are empty.
Thank you in advance

I recently encountered a problem when trying to run Cufflinks on eight BAM
files on our galaxy instance (via the multi-input toggle) and received the
error: "Unable to run job due to a misconfiguration of the Galaxy job
running system" for some, but not all, of the cufflinks jobs that appear in
the history. These particular BAM files were copied over from the history of
a larger workflow where they were successfully run through cufflinks. In the
case of the problem workflow run, the cufflinks jobs are all successfully
submitted to Torque PBS and continue to run and finish but many have this
error displayed in the History. The jobs with the error displayed fail to
copy files from the working directory to the database directory despite
running to completion. We recently updated to galaxy-central changeset
6131:be6c89c33639. I have seen this error multiple times for this workflow,
even after restarting galaxy. Does anyone have any ideas of what might be
Thanks for any help,
Can we introduce new file types via tools in the tool shed? It seems Galaxy can load them if they are in the datatypes configuration file. Does tool installation automate the editing of that file?

If you are executing run.sh without the --daemon flag, the output will
go to whatever terminal window you started Galaxy in, not to a file.
You'll want to make sure that all of the files under Galaxy's root
directory are owned by a single user, which is the same user which
starts and runs the Galaxy process.

The full command to stop would be `sh run.sh --stop-daemon`, but that
only applies if you originally started Galaxy with `run.sh --daemon`.

The --daemon flag runs Galaxy in the background and redirects its output
to paster.log. Without the --daemon flag, the process stays connected
to the terminal in which you start it.
Since Galaxy wasn't originally started with the --daemon flag, you'll
need to find the process, either by locating the terminal window in
which it was started (possibly by your colleague) and then hitting
Ctrl-C, or by using the `ps` command (e.g. `ps auxwww | grep python`)
and killing the Galaxy process. It usually looks something like:
nate 18213 0.9 0.4 438844 146260 pts/7 Sl+ 10:47 2:30 python ./scripts/paster.py serve universe_wsgi.ini
So you would do:
% kill 18213

There is no default. Any users set in admin_uesrs will be
administrators. If the account specified in admin_users does not yet
exist, you can simply create it. Once created, that account will be an

No, True is the default setting so with it commented it is still set to

Unfortunately, we don't have the resources for phone support. We'll be

Hi, I updated my test server today and everything seemed fine. I added
a new library item via a URL. After that my history panel displays
"Internal Server Error" and I am getting the error below in paster.log:
Any ideas how this has occurred and if there is a fix?

I am running the example_watcher_folder.py API script and it
intermittently fails to run a workflow on a file dropped into the import
directory (the file is imported and the workflow starts running, but its
jobs hang or fail). Galaxy uses a condor dramaa job runner. When I look
at the galaxy script being run by condor, it sets the PYTHONPATH and
then executes the following command, which also fails at the command line.
--column=7 --style=num --order=DESC

commands at the command line, as well as ensure that galaxy workflows
Sorry to bother you guys with such a simple thing. I'm quite new to the terminal and command line etc. so downloading and getting Galaxy running on my PC was a voyage of discovery! Anyhow, I have it, it's alive.......... just can't get any data in!
Have made myself an Admin User to create a data library, I point the importer at the files and it starts but never stops and remains at 0bytes. Have I forgotten to set something up?
Surely I can just dump all my files in a folder in the right place and go get it when I need it. Can't seem to find an idiots guide for setting this up for a local install (just me and my computer). Any pointers or helpful threads would be great.

I'm a systems administrator for an HPC cluster, and have been asked by a
faculty member here to try to get galaxy to work on our cluster.
Unfortunately, there are one or two outstanding questions that I can't
seem to find the answer to, and I'm hoping someone here can help me out.
In particular, is galaxy, and the PBS runner specifically, capable of
submitting jobs under specific user names? Essentially, if I set up
galaxy to push jobs to our cluster, will they all show up under one user
credential (eg. the "galaxy" user), or can we set it up so that the user
logged into galaxy, is used to submit the job?
This one is kindof a show-stopper, since our internal policies require
that all jobs have a specific user credential, with one person per username.
