I believe that you also posted this question to the
galaxy-dev(a)bx.psu.edu mailing list (at the end of a longer thread). If
all the permission issues are worked out, then there may be some other
setting that is incorrect. It is not clear if you are using the option
"Auto-detect" or if you are specifying the file type. You might try
modifying the extension on the files to be ".fastq" instead of ".fq"
the file type has been specified as FASTQ, or you want it to be
interpreted as FASTQ) since this is what Galaxy would label the datatype.
For reference, this is the wiki help:
Hopefully this helps. If you still have problems, then the
galaxy-dev(a)bx.psu.edu list is still the best place to resolve local

I created an account in our local Galaxy instance and it's a non-admin
one. I have set up Galaxy (I have an account that's an admin) so
that my user account can upload files to a data library. But when I
tried doing it, I got the following error:
The directory <some folder here> contains no valid files.
I checked the path to the folder and it was correct. I also checked if
I had really placed the FASTQ file inside the folder and I found the
file there. Why is Galaxy telling me that there is no valid file
within the folder when there's a file present within the directory?
Thank you in advance for any help!
