error uploading files to local galaxy

hi there I just installed a local galaxy server on my computer, and I loaded several fastq files with no problems while I have issues uploading 2 fastaq. I used these fastq in other analysis and they work just fine. this is the error I get:
Fatal error: Exit code 1 ()

Tool generated the following standard error:

Traceback (most recent call last):

Can you post the job_conf.xml file? what is the size of the files? if your files are bigger than 2Gb try to use ftp

@nibhelim How did you load the files into Galaxy? Does the file /Users/azimmer/galaxy/database/tmp/f2db41e1fa331b3e-1570157510288-2428886529 exist on the file system? Does it have the correct permissions?

That limit does not apply with any up to date browser anymore.


Hi, I am having similar issues. When I upload local files, they appear in my history, but they are empty and I’m getting “/bin/sh: /Users/viboud: No such file or directory”. The upload path is “/Users/viboud 1/galaxy/database/files/000/dataset_30.dat”, but that file doesn’t contain anything. Any advice?
Thank you!

@viboud12 You have a space in your path… Change it to something like:
