moving galaxy instance to different location

Ido Tamir
Hi,

I have to move my galaxy instance to a different file system location.
Is there anything that I have to look out for besides the obvious like absolute paths in some data configs?

thank you very much,
ido

Hi Ido

Over the last few years, we have moved our production server to
different hardware twice. And we also made copies of our production
server in order to have the right development environment.

It always work without much hassle, once we have taken care of the
'obvious', which usually was a combination of changing the absolute
paths the configuration files and creating sym-links.


As always, make sure you have a back-up of your PostgreSQL (or MySQL)
database.


Regards, Hans-Rudolf

Just to follow up on this - you will want to explicitly check dataset.external_filename in your database for any hard coded paths that may have changed.

Also - all tool shed installed tools including migrated tools are creating tool dependency files (env.sh) in tool_dependency_dir that contain hard coded paths. These will all need to be updated.

I imagine some tools will no longer work after migration - for instance anything installed with virtualenv :(. These will likely need to be reinstalled. I wish I could say I thought that was going to be an easy process.

Good luck.
