Yes, we are using this locally (sftp and scp). Basically follow the same rules as for FTP on the wiki, but leave out the ProFTP setup; this was per Nate's instructions, whom I believe is to change the FTP-specific documentation at some point.
Basically, any mechanism that transfers data to that folder should work; the key part is to ensure that the user folders are set up correctly and that transferred files have proper permissions set so galaxy can work on them. chris On Feb 20, 2012, at 12:53 PM, Dave Clements wrote: > Hi Mattias, > > Posting to Galaxy-Dev, so others can see the question and response. > > Is there anyone using SFTP in a local Galaxy installation?
