GBrowse2 - The Generic Genome Browser
If Apache2 is installed on the system, the software has configured it to link
URLs to GBrowse directories. A restart of Apache is required to take it into
account. Configuration is available in /etc/gbrowse2/apache2.conf file.
If another web server is used, one should refer to the apache2 template to map
urls in the same way.
Additional optional perl dependencies exist to provide additional features.
Please refer to Optional modules in INSTALL file for more information.
Configuration files are located in /etc/gbrowse. Main
configuration file is GBrowse.conf. It contains the global configuration
elements. Specific configuration files are located in the same directory per
data bank. For more details, one should refer to the GBrowse documentation.
Installation is provided with a Yeast genome sample.
