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.
