Hi all,

I'm wondering if someone who has downloads working through apache (using
xsendfile) has encountered this error when downloading HTML files:

(13)Permission denied: xsendfile: cannot open file:

The output from ls -lZ /galaxy_data/production/tmp is:
drwx------. galaxy galaxy unconfined_u:object_r:httpd_sys_content_t:s0
The output from ls-lZ /galaxy_data/production/tmp/tmpN0ydYt/ is:
-rw-rw-r--. galaxy galaxy unconfined_u:object_r:httpd_sys_content_t:s0

It's not a SElinux issue (if I sudo setenforce 0, the problem persists)..
It seems it's a regular permissions issue (user apache is running httpd and
does not permission to enter the tmpN0ydYt). Since galaxy creates these
files with these permissions I don't know how to fix this issue. I'm also
wondering why the HTML datasets are in the tmp folder not the files folder?

Here's my apache config:
<VirtualHost *:80>

Is there something wrong with it? Or have I missed something in
