I successfully moved galaxy to a new server about a year ago (so some things might have changed...). Things to do/keep in mind were:

- Try to keep paths identical on the new server. Some paths are stored in the database. I changed the galaxy user-data location, so I had to manually update using mysql UPDATE commands. - users/passwords are migrated just fine if you dump the database to a file and load that in the new server - I simply copied over the entire installation tree, including reference data, user data, binaries and so on.


Double check the universie_wsgi for all paths and locations

Hi all,

I've tried looking in the mailing list for this to no avail. (Maybe my search terms were no good..)

I administer a server with about 15 users. The server is failing and so I have set up a new server (with an updated OS, Galaxy version etc (galaxy versions: old - nov 2013, new - Feb 2014). Is there a method for migrating my users and their data across to the new server, without getting them to tell me their passwords....

Cheers,

Simon.
