We have an older galaxy installation (uses universe_wsgi.ini config file), 
that's configured for external user authentication, provided by our Apache 
proxy setup which uses Shibboleth to our campus authentication system. This 
works just fine.

I'm setting up a new galaxy installation, the configuration files are now 
different, i.e. galaxy.ini, etc., and am having trouble getting the same 
authentication mechanism to work. I have the same Apache proxy configuration 
that I do on the old galaxy, and I've set "use_remote_user = True" in 
galaxy.ini. When I go to the new galaxy URL, it correctly goes to our Shibbleth 
authentication screen, but upon returning to galaxy after successful 
authentication, I get an error "The proxy server received an invalid response 
from an upstream server."

I have verified that Shibboleth is returning the same information to both the 
old galaxy server and the new galaxy server. I believe galaxy is looking for 
the REMOTE_USER value, which is indeed being provided. In my case it provides:
(REMOTE_USER)   mwaldron

Am I missing something in the galaxy configuration?
