Unnable to acces galaxy.biobakery.org - Proxy Error

Since December 20th 2023 I am unnable to acces galaxy.biobakery.org, in order to use LEfSe workflow. The following message comes to screen:

Proxy Error

The proxy server received an invalid response from an upstream server.
The proxy server could not handle the request GET /.
Reason: Error reading from remote server

Apache/2.4.10 (Debian) Server at galaxy.biobakery.org Port 80

When will it be online again? Is there other Galaxy-based plataform where I can use LEfSe?

Thank you very much

All the best,

Hi @amtoscani and @Deepika_2010108 ,

Apologies for the inconvenience. We are currently working on resolving the issue and will let you know as soon as the site is back again.


Hi Deepika,
I found that LEFSE is running well on Galaxy Metabiome Portal
Maybe you will find the tool of your need too.

All the best!


I’m also not able to access galaxy.biobakery.org. I want to use other tools including LEfSE also. Please try to resolve this issue asap.

I’ve been facing trouble accessing galaxy.biobakery.org to use the available tools. I’ve tried multiple times but keep encountering the following error:

Could you please look into this issue?

Hi All,

I have been unable to reach http://galaxy.biobakery.org/ for two days. Is galaxy down?
