Our production server uses Apache to handle external user authentication.
I have now set up a new test server (16.04) which handles external user
authentication via LDAP using the auth_conf file. This works nicely when
using an empty database (I have managed to solve all last weeks problems).
I have now connected my test server to a copy of the PostgreSQL database
used on our production server. I try to log in, and I get:
"This account was created for use with an external authentication
and the login fails.
If I now set external = 'f' in the galaxy_user table, it works
Since manually modifying the database is a bad thing, I just want to
double check, whether this is the right way to do it?
If so, I will add a line or two to the wiki
Many thanks for your help
