I installed Galaxy locally on my laptop (working on ubuntu 14.04) following these instructions: https://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Admin/GetGalaxy and all went well. I was even able to add new modules.
I tried also to configure the galaxy for ftp file transfer but the instructions on the website are not clear https://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Admin/Config/UploadviaFTP. especially the parts: Configuring the database server and after. There is no indication on the files to modify and how to do it.
I am using a Filezilla for file transfert and it's working fine for the Galaxy main server.
Can anyone help me?
