Galaxy server upload file to local storage


#1

How to store the file in galaxy server local storage? I’ve gone through the link http://galaxy-guide.meteor.com/file-storage.html, The doc says that we can store the file on galaxy server (limited 512 MB).

But can someone give me an example of what would be the path to save the file on the server of tmp folder?

don’t do it. use something like S3

search forums. it’s been answered before again and again

There is also the option to store within GridFS (mongo-based file-storage).

I have made good experience with https://github.com/jalik/jalik-ufs, which also supports S3.

Be careful with GridFS though. It is probably better to store on S3 for performance reasons.
