Yes I am, and recently I thought to check my httpd.conf and it still has a
"XSendFilePath /panfs/galaxy_data" setting, where "/panfs" is the
directory path, and figured that was the problem, I just haven't changed it
yet. Thanks for the suggestion to look! I'll let you know if changing that
doesn't fix it.

Are you using XSendFile or X-Accel-Redirect, by any chance?

prefer to do away with the symlink approach altogether and get Galaxy to
work directly with the new directory path. Any suggestions for getting that

have run into some problems with managing our datasets. I can run Galaxy
jobs just fine but I cannot view or download the datasets in the output of
the jobs after they have run - when it tries to open it from the new path -
and I get an actual browser error when trying to fetch the dataset. On a
hunch I created a symbolic link named after the old path in the / directory
pointing to the new location (and pointed file_path in the
universe_wsgi.ini file back to it - which looks exactly like the old
directory path), and sure enough this works as a (temporary) fix to
view/download the files. However doing that seems to, in turn, mess with
the file uploading function which will fail every time with a "

situation it does not like traversing a symbolic link (which is the only
explanation that I can think of). The root of the problem needs to be fixed
though in that Galaxy seems to be "remembering" the old path from somewhere
(the Galaxy database?) such that it will not let me simply migrate the data
to a new location and change the path variables in

made to fix this permanently?
