All,

My understanding is that the cleanup_datasets.py under scripts/cleanup_datasets should be compatible with 'older' versions of postgresql. I'm running 8.1 under CentOS 5. When I attempt to run the scripts, it fails to clean any data sets. From the logs, I'm noticing messages like:

database_connection contains an unknown SQLAlchemy database dialect: postgresql

In my universe_wsgi.ini I've defined the database_connection as:

database_connection = postgresql://galaxy:********@localhost:5432/galaxydb

and am confident it's working as Galaxy works fine, other than this problem with deleting older datasets.

The pgcleanup.py script isn't an option, as it requires postgresql >=9.1. I noticed yet another version of cleanup_datasets.py under cron which looks like it might be compatible with postgres, but am leary of trying it as I'm not sure what it means by "1: database directory to clean". I'm not sure what directory to point this to, nor am I confident that just deleting data from the directory is the safest thing.

Any suggestions on how to proceed?

Thanks!

Malcolm
