I have a small issue with uploading files on my local galaxy instance. Using the upload tool (the little upload icon) does not seem to save my uploaded file into history (the upload works, I can find the file uploaded to the server). Also other forms of upload work fine (Get Data -> Upload File saves files to history and FTP shows on the upload page just fine).

my nginx settings are:

nginx_upload_store = /usr/local/galaxy/galaxy-dist/database/tmp/upload_store

nginx_upload_path = /_upload

I have no useful errors in my log file. Will be grateful for any pointers. Thank you

How old is your Galaxy? Get Data/Upload File should open the same dialogue as the upload icon now. Can you see any JS errors in the browser? (use this to see them:

You're most likely missing nginx proxy settings required for upload.  Do you have the _upload_done directive specified in the following wiki page under "receiving files using nginx"?

Thanks for the advice, I've eventually fixed the problem using the information from the nginx setup page. I have also done an update on my galaxy instance and am now observing strange behaviour. (This might be off topic from the original problem). When using safari, any action resulting in a history entry adds the item to the bottom of the list (refreshing history orders the entries correctly). I have not been able to replicate this behaviour in other browsers (in both firefox and chrome the history seems to work fine).
