I think so. Just to double check is there a definitive way I can tell? In
<param name="ftp_files" type="ftpfile" label="Files uploaded
So I got this to work by hacking basic.py.
def visible( self ):
self.tool.app.config.ftp_upload_dir = '/data/galaxy'
self.tool.app.config.ftp_upload_site = 'localhost'
I can now see my files in my user directory. What is the best part of the code to use
log.warning() to see what's going on? How can tell if it is reading the ini file ok?
My next question is based on permissions. It looks like galaxy has to own the file (as
nobody in your example) to upload and remove it from the directory. I'd like to change
it to be more forceful, which would allow galaxy to remove the file if group owned by
nobody. What module/lines do this and what impact would such a change have?
Thanks for any help,
