Hi Charlie, Our main galaxy server is actually running CentOS 5.10. The galaxy cloud instances are built on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. That said, as far as I know, any *nix with python 2.5 or above should work fine.
The following two links have lots of information regarding setting up your own server: http://wiki.g2.bx.psu.edu/Admin/Config/Performance/Production%20Server http://wiki.g2.bx.psu.edu/Admin/NGS%20Local%20Setup Automated setup of many tools is available currently via mi-deployment, see https://bitbucket.org/afgane/mi-deployment for more information on that. In coming months, automated deployment of many tool binaries will be available directly from within Galaxy via the Tool Shed. And lastly, this is definitely the right list for this type of question. Thanks for your interest in Galaxy! Dannon On Feb 6, 2012, at 4:53 PM, Li Charlie Xia wrote: > Dear all, > > New bee here.
