I have downloaded and set up a local instance of galaxy. It runs great. However when I try to load files larger than 2giga the software tells me to use the ftp which I did not get exactly how to do (I do not have any upload via FTP in the page that opens upon clicking on the tool "Upload data". I read one can upload large files using a new data library. If I do so I have no upload file as described in the galaxy video turorial. Can you help me on this please
Do you have your own instance? Have you seen this page? https://wiki.galaxyproject.org/FTPUpload
Yes, but I can not see the section relative to ftp transfer in my "Get data -> Uppload file " page......
You probably have not activated the FTP functionality in galaxy.ini. Galaxy needs to talk to an FTP Server.
Thanks! that could be a reason. I just saw the guide at https://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Admin/Config/UploadviaFTP that looks very laborious actually. I would have expected loading large files would be easier in a so easy to use platform as galaxy. I am sure that there is a reason for that. I'll try to give it a try in a couple of days. Thanks for the help!
