Panels disappearing when choosing tools

Sebastian Schaaf
Hi all,

Again a question from my side in connection with setting up a new Galaxy
instance within an closed network (including a proxy) an SLES 11 SP2.
After some struggeling with the Apache config finally Galaxy was
accessible, but behaves somewhat strange compared to another instance
which is running for a long time without complains (and which was
recently updated to the june release).

When I choose a tool from the panel on the left side everything works
fine until I click on the corresponding link. Unlike the usual case the
tools 'GUI' (so the wrapper web page) appears within Galaxy's central
pane this side get's 'full screened', means: the panels left (tools),
right (history) and on the top side (navigation) are not shown any more.
It does not matter wether I'm logged in or not (Galaxy can be accessed
by guests currently).

Due to the Apache stuff before I compared the access logs of this new
instance an the established one: they definitly look different...

[IP1] - galaxy [19/Jun/2013:19:11:22 +0200] "GET
/galaxy/static/style/library.css?v=1370962215 HTTP/1.1" 200 1237
"https://[url]/galaxy/tool_runner?tool_id=upload1" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11;
Linux i686)
AppleWebKit/537.4 (KHTML, like Gecko) Ubuntu/12.10 Chromium/22.0.1229.94
Chrome/22.0.1229.94 Safari/537.4"

'somewhat strange':
[IP2] - - [19/Jun/2013:19:23:16 +0200] "GET
/galaxy/tool_runner?tool_id=upload1 HTTP/1.1" 200 35869

Access was performed from the same maschine, using the same browser.

What I see is that on the one hand the second field which follows the IP
(removed here) is filled with 'galaxy' in the first case, but empty
('-') in the second one. On the other hand it is obvious that most of
the info around e.g the accessing browser etc. is missing. The error log
does not note anything during this access.

Due to the fact that I'm nearly right the opposite of a webserver god
(but willed to learn) I would really appreciate your help to fix this.

Thanks in advance,
