I exported a large history that reduced to an 8GB compressed file. I
like to re-import this history but the "Import from file" options
an error (see attached image). I looked around the wiki and there
to be an ftp upload for large files
Is there an equivalent FTP upload for exported large histories?
I would like to export some of my large analysis histories and save
an external hard drives to free some space in my account. However, I
able to re-import large histories. I want to make sure I can re-import
these large histories before I delete them from my Galaxy account.

After discussing this with Getiria, I think what is needed here is a
use FTP to upload compressed histories from the import screen as is
available from the upload data tool. The problem we're currently
experiencing is that when we try to upload a compressed history where
compressed file is greater than 2GB, the process fails. This is
us from being able to effectively have users archive data from Galaxy
reduce our disk usage. This is a very pressing issue for us with our
production Galaxy server at the Minnesota Supercomputing Institute.
Additionally, if someone could provide a better understanding of how
exported histories are treated on the Galaxy server that would be
e.g. how long do the compressed histories stick around on disk, etc?
would like to have users archive their data on their own systems and
permanently delete their Galaxy history when an analysis is complete,
if the compressed history persists on the Galaxy server the utility of
is somewhat reduced.
Jeremy gave advice for the local, but I wanted to follow up about the
trouble you were having uploading to the public Main Galaxy instance
https://main.g2.bx.psu.edu/ usegalaxy.org). Would you please try a
larger history upload again today, if you have not already done so,
let us know if it is still problematic?
Our apologies for the problems later last week. We believe these are
cleared now, but want to make sure this function is working from your
end as expected.
