I have a new galaxy installation under Linux. It's running as an Apache proxy (subdirectory) with authentication through galaxy (not apache).
When trying to register a new user (which will be the administrator), the registration page declare success ("Now logged in as foo") but I am still just an anonymous user. If I try to login, it appears to succeed but I'm still anonymous. If I purposely enter the wrong password, the system complains as it should but I never get proper credentials.
If I take away the Apache proxy configuration and run on the internal server, the problem goes away: I can login as expected and get the correct environment. The error is clearly here but I feel like I've followed the procedure written on the wiki. Specifically,
Apache ----------- RewriteEngine on RewriteRule ^/galaxy$ /galaxy/ [R] RewriteRule ^/galaxy(.*) http://localhost:8082$1 [P] # 8080 and 8081 are busy
Galaxy --------- [filter:proxy-prefix] use = egg:PasteDeploy#prefix prefix = /galaxy [app:main] filter-with = proxy-prefix cookie_path = /galaxy
Any idea of what might be wrong? Don't know if it matters but I'm using a MySQL database. I can see new users and it seems to work well enough to complain when bad passwords are entered.
