I am getting the error "(13)Permission denied: xsendfile: cannot open file:

indeed a basic filesystem permissions issue. The problem is that the
permissions created for that directory and every directory created in tmp/
look like this:

drwx------+   2 galaxy galaxy          3 Dec  4 09:23 tmp8iEccn

And I have placed the Apache user in the galaxy group, but as you can see
no group permissions ever get set by Galaxy on the directories that it
creates (it is getting a 700 permissions setting).

Isn't the trailing + character an indication of ACLs being set on the directory? What do the following say...?

getfacl /tmp/tmp8iEccn
getfacl /tmp

If you do have ACLs involved, it may be the case that various masks are being enforced via that mechanism.


P.S. I'm not sure that making the galaxy user a "sudoer" would have any effect unless the user was attempting to gain privileges, which would be a pretty scary way of running Galaxy, I would have thought.
