Hi, Hans-Rudolf,

Thanks for your response. We didn't build a new server, we just plan to change the IP address of the old server (The server will automatically get a new IP address when the physical address is moved). When server is started with new IP address, can we login directly using new IP address from client (web browser)? Could you please let me know if we only need change the IP address of file "universe_wsgi.ini"? Where is this file?

Best Wishes,

Hi Yan

Assuming you have copied everything to the new server and you have changed the "host = xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx" line in the 'universe_wsgi.ini' file it should all work

Dear All,

We have a question regarding the Galaxy server. We installed a local
version on our Linux machine and need move to a new place. The IP
address will be changed. Could you please let me know if the server can
be still used? I mean, we can use the new IP to open the home page of
Galaxy and use it. For example if the new IP is "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx", which
is similar as before(I just replace the IP address). Do we need reset
anything for Galaxy? Will the Galaxy use the fixed IP address in the
system when it was installed?


Looking forward to hearing from you.

Best Wishes,

    Hi Yan,

    I've moved this discussion to the galaxy-dev list since it pertains to a
    local installation of Galaxy.

    Responses to your questions follow, in-line.

    Since debug = False in universe_wsgi.ini, you should be able to find a
    more detailed error message in the log file.  If starting Galaxy with:

       % sh run.sh --daemon

    The default log file is 'paster.log' in Galaxy's root directory.

     > (2) Could you please let me know if there is any command to stop

    If starting with the --daemon flag (as above), you can use:

       % sh run.sh --stop-daemon

    If running in the foreground, you can use Ctrl-C to terminate the
    process.  There is a recent bug whereby Ctrl-C is ineffective on some
    platforms under Python 2.6 - in this case you will have to kill/pkill
    the process manually.  We are working on a fix for the latter.

    setup.sh would have only been necessary prior to running Galaxy the
    first time, however, this step has recently been removed.  If you are
    referencing documentation that still refers to setup.sh, please let us
    know so we can update it - I did notice this was still on the
    "Production Server" page, so I removed it from there.

    You no longer need to run setup.sh at all.

    setup.sh and its replacements in run.sh and the Galaxy application
    itself never overwrite files, they only create files from sample files
    if they do not exist.

     > (5) I read some of your docs, command "sh setup.sh"(sh run.sh) and

    Both syntaxes are effectively the same in most cases.
