Put an apache password on galaxy?

Lee Katz
Hi, I am relatively new to Galaxy.  I would like to set it up as an apache password protected site.  I have tried to do it, but I realize now that it has its own server built-in and that it is ineffective to set up .htaccess because it isn't reading .htaccess (or so I think).  

More information: Apache works (test page loads, and I can change it), and Galaxy works (I even made a new tool that is working).  I have Ubuntu 12.

My basic, basic need is to set up a server-level password like what .htaccess would provide.  Could anyone help?  Thank you.

Hello Lee,

Please see the section " External user authentication" on this wiki:
http://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Admin/Config/Apache%20Proxy

If you still need help, posting this question over on the [hidden email] mailing list (but not cross-posting) with more details about what you have tried (how this solution was not a fit, etc.) will give you question the best exposure to the development community.

Re: Put an apache password on galaxy?

Thanks Jen.  I tried a few more things before posting to galaxy-dev, and it turns out that I had the default virtual host still running, while I tried to have a galaxy virtualhost running alongside it.  I think it should be possible to do that still, but it simplified and corrected it when I removed the default virtual host from apache/sites-enabled

I have a second question now.  Where would I put the .htaccess file for it to be read correctly?  I tried this line in my new virtualhost file, but no password prompt appears 

AccessFileName /home/galaxy/bin/galaxy-dist/static/.htaccess

More info:
All directories are chmod 775 for user galaxy starting with /home/galaxy/

$ cat static/.htaccess
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Yay Bioinformatics"
AuthUserFile /home/galaxy/bin/galaxy-dist/htpasswd
require valid-user
$ cat htpasswd
EDLB:xxxxxxxxxxxxx
$ ll static/.htaccess
-rw-r--r-- 1 galaxy galaxy 117 Apr  8 17:16 static/.htaccess
ll htpasswd
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 19 Apr  8 17:32 htpasswd
