I’m attempting to install a local version of Galaxy on a centos VM. In order to get admin rights to the instance, it said I have to have a registered account. I had one under one email, but the local galaxy install will not authenticate it. It authenticates fine when I login to the main public galaxy site.
I then registered a new account under a different email address (yeah I know, but it’s broken so what am I supposed to do). I made that account an admin, then I deleted the original account. Then I tried to re-create the account, or just login, in the local instance but no luck as it says my email is already registered. I tried logging in as a registered user on this local instance, tried creating a new account, and also tried to create a user from the admin interface and none of them worked at all.
How does this actually work? When a user authenticates to a 127.0.0.1 loopback based local instance, is it actually checking somehow against your main registration server? How do I have local users and also have an admin user? How does any of this work? If it’s documented clearly somewhere, please advise as I searched the help and faqs and came up empty.
At this point I’m just trying to test this thing and see if I can actually get it running on a VM for a user, I’m not a genomics guy I’m a sysadmin.
From what I can tell, once a person registers an email address with you centrally, you can never use that email again on a local user install. So even though it’s local it phones home to mama to see if the user exists? It just keeps saying that the account exists already, but won’t actually authenticate to it because the password doesn’t work. So how do local users even get created and managed? It requires an email address no matter what. This is for my local install of galaxy not y’all’s system.
I’m seeing some suggested topics to browse and will try those but any help or links or suggestions at all will be greatly appreciated.
