Hi, I have been using the Main galaxy instance for analysis of ChIP-Seq
data. My university has recently installed a local instance of Galaxy and
we have an SFTP server available. Is there an easy way to upload fastq
files to Galaxy by SFTP rather than FTP?
Darn, never mind. Discovered the " />" at end of <options
from_data_table="bccdc_blast_fields" /> was of course causing all the
<filters> that followed to be ignored.
Thanks to those who may have chipped in on this one. (I get digest mode).

I successfully uploaded files to the main Galaxy server a month ago using ftp. However, any attempts to upload files today have failed. I get a 'Could not connect to server' error when trying to connect to main.g2.bx.psu.edu<http://main.g2.bx.psu.edu> uisng FileZilla. Any suggestions?

First, I've moved this question from the Galaxy development mailing list to the Galaxy user mailing list; in the future, please send questions about using Galaxy to the galaxy-user list.
To answer your question, files larger than 2GB must be uploaded via FTP to Galaxy. This is necessary due to Web browser limitations.
Help to use FTP is on this wiki. The screencasts both show the two step process. The first is to FTP the data to the server, the second is to move the data from the "Get Data -> Upload Data" tool form into your history.

I'm on cloudman, trying to upload files, and I'm getting this error message:
"No space left on device" transferring a 1 GB file to my instance, but the
cloudman console says I have more than 5 GB left?
Is this a bad error message?
Is there some other file you want to see?

I would like to know whether I can post my supplementary data for an article in the galaxy server.
I have .docx files and .xlsx files. I am planning to upload these data in a folder and share the link at first and later publish it. When I tried uploading xlsx file, it is getting automatically converted to .xml files.
Please let me know if it is possible provide the supplementary information through galaxy that includes doc and excel sheets..
Thank you so much for your help
After successfully using RNAseq software in Galaxy online for about 10
different datasets to just get gene expression differences between
replicates from control versus exposed zebrafish embryos, I am having no
luck getting cuffdiff to work with the "moved" Galaxy.
I had this problem with histories developed before the move and histories
developed after the move.
I have had this problem using an order cuffmerge gtf file that worked in
the past in Cuffdiff, with a new cuffmerge file developed from cufflinks of
the files and by just using a ref file gtf from UCSC.
I don't know if this is just some interface problem with a different
version of the software that was included with the move, or a reference
genome that does not interface with Cuffdiff. It has happened with about 5
Is anyone else having this problem? And found a solution?
My histories seem to be stopping their processing around the
Tophat-cuffmerge steps since the change over of Galaxy online. Sometimes a
red box appears over my history name but disappears in a minute or less.
I am wondering, given the way the Toolshed now looks different for RNAseq
work, if some changes have been made that are disallowing the procedures I
I run larger Fastq files (100 million to 200 million 50bp single-ended
reads per sample). I have been grooming my illumina fastq's, using Tophat
(not Tophat2) for alignment, then Cuffmerge, then Cuffdiff. This worked in
the past but my history are just getting thru Tophat or Cuffmerge and
stalling. Should I be doing this in a different manner?
This has been my second time around with these datasets after it was
suggested that I delete and start all over again.
There will be 4 days of Galaxy-based training at UC Davis, December 10-13.
See below for details.
These do sell out, so if you are interested, please think about registering
sooner, rather than later.

Thanks Jen and James so much.
Now it looks like I have fixed the problem about tophat_indexes_color,
because "Tophat for SOLiD" tool is running in my account (still running,
but not finished yet). Here is a summary:
- The hg19 index files for colorspace have been there, so I don’t need
to build or download.
- Change the tool_data_table_conf.xml file, add this:
< <table name="tophat_indexes_color" comment_char="#">
< <columns>value, dbkey, name, path</columns>
- Yes, both Bowtie and Tophat use the same indexes.
- bowtie_indexes and tophat_indexes use this loc file:
- bowtie_indexes_color and tophat_indexes_color use this loc file:
Hope this can help somebody.
