Which Galaxy server are you using? In general bioinformatic tools can run a long long time, even days. This is dependent on the tool in question, the size of the input data size and how busy the server is. So I wouldn’t worry and wait a little bit longer.

You also might want to have a look at our training material about 16S analysis with Mothur.
