Hi Ross,

I checked the following:

wget <link> works, I can download the file. It's not saved as <Historyname>.tar.gz but as "export_archive?id=a69ee3e00cb4d02c". Anyway, I can unpack the archive with tar xfvz.

hg head:

Zusammenfassung: Missing import in library_contents.py

Where can I find the file (I assume?) paster.log?

Sorry to hear it's not working for you - that link definitely did work

Suggestions: check that it's not a local firewall problem - eg try
wget http://main.g2.bx.psu.edu/history/export_archive?id=735329393657ab63
or on the same link you're trying to import - it's just an archive.

If that works, then maybe check for an old version of the code your
Galaxy is running?
eg what does:

hg head

show from the root of the installation that's failing to import?

Is there anything interesting in paster.log after you start an import
job that never finishes?

Hi Ross,

that is exactly what I tried - "Export to file" and then enter the link into
"Import from File".
But the History never appears in the account on our Galaxy :(
It works between different accounts on main, but not from main to our's..

Hi, Stefanie.

I think you might want a URL pointing to an "archived history" if you
want to move your history to a different Galaxy?

I imported your test history into my account on main, then I used the
'export to file' option (it might not be optimally named since it
really creates an importable archive) - main returned:

"Exporting History 'imported: Neue History zum Test'. Use this link to
download the archive or import it to another Galaxy server:

I just successfully imported from that URL to a private Galaxy and it
all looks right.

So - I'm logged in and the link is accessible.
(I tried with different accounts on the public server - that works; but
not importing to our own instance.)
The history must be "Accessible via link": Options -->      Share/Publish
  Make History Accessible via Link

Can you share the history with me?

I tried it, following your instructions.
And different follow-ups:
1) Pasting the "sharing"-Link into the "Import a History from an Archive"
field ->    doesn't work
2) Opening the link being logged in to the account on OUR instance, that
means, the target account, but NOT on the source account. ->    doesn't
work -
he tries to import the history on the public server (I assume because the
message was about "this will delete your current history")

When I imported histories from one account to another on the public
I never used "Make History Accessible via Link". I just took the
(the one you can download the history as an archive file.)
I even tried uploading the file somewhere else.

This is my test-History:
