Galaxy Optimization

Create the MySQL database:

mysql -p 
create database galaxy; 
grant all on galaxy.* to 'galaxy'@'localhost' identified by 'password'; 
flush privileges quit

Edit the Galaxy config file:

emacs universe_wsgi.ini & 
Change: 
port=80 
debug = False 
use_interactive = False 
database_connection = mysql://galaxy:oversight7@localhost:3306/galaxy?/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock 
smtp_server = your_smtp_server 
Check: # Dataset files are stored in this directory. 
#file_path = database/files
#new_file_path = database/tmp

The last two options define where Galaxy stores its datasets, and where temporary files are stored. If your users work with large files such as NGS data, you may need to modify these paths to point to disks where large amounts of space is available.
