I am unable to get VCF files to display in IGV in my local galaxy
installation. BAM files display fine, however, whenever I click on the

"You must import this dataset into your current history before you
can view it at the desired display application."
When I return to Galaxy, my history is indeed changed to a new empty
I think this may have to do with the fact that I had to setup Apache to
allow unauthenticated access to the bam/vcf files (see my notes on how I
did this at
However, I can't figure out why BAM files work and VCF files don't. Any
advice or insight would be appreciated.
