Hi all
I downloaded galaxy om my Mac OS 10.6.8 and have followed the following

Install Galaxy on MacBook Pro OS10.7.4 (08-10-2012)
     • Install Mercurial http://mercurial.selenic.com/wiki/
     • Open Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app
     • Confirm Mercurial installation by pasting in "hg version", no
quotes and hit return
             response = version 2.3+20120807
     • Check Python version by pasting in "python -V", no quotes and hit
             response = Python 2.7.1
     • Go to your home directory by pasting in "cd", no quotes and hit
     • Get Galaxy by pasting in "hg clone
http://bitbucket.org/galaxy/galaxy-dist/";, no quotes and hit return
     • Go to the Galaxy directory by pasting in "cd galaxy-dist", no
quotes and hit return
     • Start up Galaxy by pasting in "sh run.sh", no quotes and hit
     • Open web browser and paste in “http://localhost:8080”, no quotes
and hit return

I started galaxy by pasting sh run.sh and it fetched everything and
updated whats needed.

I wonder if the process is actually running or if you need to do an update to incorporate changes first, then run. There is also a newer version of Mercurial (2.3.3) available, but if you are not writing tools for the Tool Shed, this should not be a factor right now.

So first, double check that Galaxy is not running, then check to make sure updates are applied, then restart. The "$" in the command strings below represent the terminal prompt, they are not part of what you type.

1. Stop galaxy. With the terminal open to the process running Galaxy (or that you think is still running Galaxy) and use the two keys "Ctrl-c" together from your keyboard.

2. Change back the universe_wsgi.ini file to the default.

3. Still inside the galaxy-dist directory, type this to apply any changes:

  $ hg update

4. Now start up the Galaxy server:

  $ sh run.sh

Please give this a try and let us know how it goes. I am going to move your question over to the galaxy-...@bx.psu.edu mailing list for better visibility to the development community. This is where you will want to post future questions about your local instance (and consider joining). To keep it updated, following the the News Briefs would be advised.

Galaxy team

Upon pasting http://localhost:8080 in my browser
GoogleChrome and Safari respectively, it didn't work. I even changed the
host setting in the universe_wsgi.ini to and still didn't open.
Any suggestions?

Kind regards

Lizex Husselmann
