Please note that mpileup is not supported yet, just pileup, although
this is on our short list of to-do upgrades. If you used mpileup, this
could very likely be the root cause of the tool error ("server error").
You can track the upgrade to mpileup through this ticket:
To troubleshoot a pileup file:
1 - double check the format of your data again the specification as
outlined on the tool form for "NGS: SAM Tools -> Generate pileup from
2 - try running the file type assignment again the job again to double
check against a transient error.
If pileup was used and the cause of the error is still unclear, we take
a look we can provide feedback. Please share a link to your history
using "Options -> Share or Publish" from the top of the history panel,
generate a share link, then email that back to me directly. Please note
which dataset presents the problem and confirm that "samtools pileup"

loaded pileup dataset, then use "Edit Attributes -> Change data type".
Hopefully this helps,

I've uploaded. But when I click the analysis link, these output files don't appear
in the Select dataset dropdown menu; instead only one file, the output from FASTQ Summary
Statistics which is obviously not pileup output, is shown.
