I am not sure which server you are working at, but these are the instructions for using FTP for upload: https://galaxyproject.org/ftp-upload/
Galaxy Main (https://usegalaxy.org) has an individual dataset size upload limit of 50 GB (uncompressed). Some data formats, like BAM, will max out at around 25-35 GB, depending on content. Total account quota is set at 250 GB. https://galaxyproject.org/main/
Galaxy Test test.galaxyproject.org) technically has the same dataset upload limit, but the quota is set at 10 GB. We test on this server, so unless you are using it for a specific reason related to testing, stick with Galaxy Main. https://galaxyproject.org/test/
If working somewhere else, check with the admins of that server to find out what their quota and upload limits are. Each Galaxy server is independently administered.
Thanks! Jen, Galaxy team
I opened an account. Is that Galaxy Test? My files are about 11 GB uncompressed. The tutorial said to leave them in the .gz format. I still get that error. on usegalaxy.org. I looked for the admin support here on campus, but they are gone. The error I get is "Failed: Filed exceeds 2GB. Please use a FTP client"
I am having exactly the same problem. The regular Galaxy upload seems to be limited to 2 GB, and the ftp site won't accept my credentials (I've triple-checked that they are correct). When I try use FileZilla it also says my credentials are wrong.
I tried using Genomespace and followed the upload instructions but received an error. Here is the log:
