The cloud version of Galaxy is quite easy to fire up and is very
complete with all tools and genomes preinstalled. Local installation
on the other hand is painful, contrary to the nice descriptions among
the wiki pages. For exmples, see this:


The initial install of galaxy is easy enough, but making a complete
setup is quite painful without dedicated IT people. Setting up ftp
server access for uploading and installing tool dependencies in
particular are not pleasant.

Since the cloud version comes with everything including the kitchen
sink, would it be possible to create a more compete local install
bundle that also includes everything, without resorting to running a
VM locally?

Have I missed some other really easy process?
