An alternative approach, in case that becomes necessary, would be to set
up your own temporary instance of Galaxy in the Amazon Web Services (AWS)
Cloud as described at http://wiki.galaxyproject.org/CloudMan
Another Cloud-based option: if interested in installing Galaxy on an
auto-scaling HPC cluster in the AWS Cloud from the "command line", I can
provide the instructions to do so. The instructions were designed to allow
those with access to a browser on a Linux, Mac or Windows  system and
minimal computing experience perform the installation. Time to get Galaxy
up and running using this method is estimated at one to two hours.
1. Will require installation of Putty or similar program for secure access
to the AWS virtual machine,
2. Both options mentioned above could be overkill, although eminently
feasible, if all you need is Galaxy running on a single server,
3. Additional options are listed at
