I didn't know that. Thanks for the reply! Now I have a new set of
questions. First, how do I list myself as an admin? Should I just literally
add my login detail in the config file? Second, my colleague would like to
be able to edit and view the changes that he has made in his tools, even if
I am doing some editing myself. Yesterday, he was running Galaxy and I was
editing some tools. Since he has already started the instance, I got a
socket error telling me that the address was already in use. Because of
that, I was not able to see my revisions. What can we do about this? We're
currently searching for ways on how Galaxy can handle 'multiusers'.

Thanks again!
