It would not be possible to share a workflow between two Galaxy
using the built in "Share or Publish" methods, however, you should be
able to download a workflow from one Galaxy instance and then "Upload
import workflow" into the public main Galaxy instance (this button is
the "Workflow" home page). Please note that any tools included in your
workflow that were available in the other instance, but that are not
available on the public main Galaxy instance, would not be functional,
so the workflow will likely need to be edited before use.
Moving FASTQ datasets from other instances should also be
straightforward - download, then upload these to the public main
instance using FTP. If you are having trouble downloading workflows or
datasets, then the host Galaxy instance should be contacted.
At this time, there are no known issues with upload functions. If you
are having problems with URL data transfer from another Galaxy
(or really, any 3rd party source), you can try to download the data
locally to your desktop in a terminal prompt (as a test) with the
% curl -O
If this is successful, then a load into Galaxy should be successful.
this is unsuccessful, first contact the source to check if the data is
publicly accessible, as they may have advice about requirements
concerning user/passwords in the URL. Once that is worked out and a
load still fails, please submit a bug report from the problematic load
(leaving the error dataset undeleted in your history) and we will
The main public instance occasionally has brief server/cluster issues
that impacted jobs, but these are very small portion of the overall
volume of jobs processed, and a re-run is the solution. We do our best
to respond quickly as soon as a problem is detected.
Reported delays due to high usage volume is a different matter. The
public main Galaxy instance has substantial dedicated resources, but
there are times when we still get very busy. If your analysis needs
urgent or your jobs are numerous, then a local or cloud instance is
recommended alternative: http://getgalaxy.org
To be clear, you had FTP upload processes that were started but never
completed? If so, the connection may be been interrupted. When this
occurs, an FTP client will allow you to restart an upload so that it
will begin again where it left off. To do this, re-establish the
connection first, then resume the transfer.
Hopefully this addresses your concerns,
