I've installed galaxy with the default settings and it works fine.

On a new Ubuntu machine I am trying to get galaxy running with Apache. But I am 
having problems, I've followed the documentation.

After installing Apache I can put my ip address into a browser and I get 
message saying Apache is working fine. It displays a message from 

Now when I start galaxy I was assuming I would get redirected to the galaxy 
welcome page, but this doesn't happen and it remains at /var/www/index.html. To 
view the welcome page I have to add ":8080" after the ip address. Is this still 
required? I thought that Apache would know to redirect to my 
distribution....What am I doing wrong?

/etc/apache2/sites-available/default-ssl and 
/etc/apache2/sites-available/default look like this ...

        DocumentRoot /var/www
        <Directory />
                Options FollowSymLinks
                AllowOverride None
        <Directory /var/www/>
                Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
                AllowOverride None
                Order allow,deny
                allow from all

 etc ...

I created an empty 'galaxy' directory with 777 permissions on it under /var/www

and universe_wsgi.ini

# Define the proxy-prefix filter.
