unresponsive web server galaxy local

Hi there,

Initially, after loading galaxy local for the first time I am able to access the web server and create an account. I then cancel galaxy and edit the galaxy.yml file to make me an admin and try to log in, the web browser is unresponsive, it completely freezes and I am unable to load or work galaxy. Why might this be?

Prior to the http link, there are many DEBUG lines (far to many to copy and paste here), so I take it something still some issue underlying this.

any help would be greatly appreciated!

I don’t know why this might be, but you could try to start galaxy with the command:

sh run.sh --daemon

And you can stop galaxy with:

sh run.sh --stop-daemon

By default this writes the log output to galaxy/galaxy.log maybe you can do this and scroll trough this file and maybe see some clear errors. It is also possible the yml format of the config file is wrong now because you added something.

My admin email line looks like something like:
admin_users: 'adminname@fakeemail.com, secondadmin@fakeemail.com'

I have now tried your suggestion and this is what is shown in the galaxy/galaxy.log file:

I have no idea what any of this means?

I have also checked the galaxy.yml file and my email address is listed as your example.

@Lauren which Galaxy release is that? Are you running it under Linux?

hi @bjoern.gruening its the latest, 20.01 and I am installing it on my Mac with Catalina OS
