Your thoughts about using the FTP upload as you describe should work
fine. Unfortunately it is not written so generically, so you'll need to
set an FTP server name in the appropriate option in the config file
despite not having one, which will be displayed in the help text on the
upload form. However, this server name is not verified in any way and
can be any string.
I'm trying to set up a directory using FTP Upload (without an FTP server :-)) as
I added a test directory for the a user 'auser'
ftp_upload_dir = /data/galaxy/
ftp_upload_site = localhost
to the universe.ini
We are using LDAP, so I set up a test directory called
but having added a file in can't see anything in the FTP upload section or the
'Files uploaded via FTP' section even
when 'auser' is logged in.
Is there something else I need to do?
