Dear all,

I have gotten a bit further and was able to install the Data Managers
this time.  Previously, I was having problems accessing the ToolShed
web site and some Python errors in the log file, but fine ... sort of
(I get some intermittent errors accessing the Tool Shed site; maybe
it's a problem on my side).

However, with the FASTA fetch tool installed from the Galaxy Main Tool
Shed, I selected "Local Data" from the Administrator panel.  Under
"Run Data Manager Tools", I now have "Bowtie index", "Reference
Genome", etc.  When I click on any of the options under "Run Data
Manager Tools", though, I get a blank page.  I mean, I get a
user-level menu on the left, history on the right, a menu along the
top.  But the center is blank.  Is there something else I need to do?

If I go to "View Data Manager Jobs", "Reference Genome", though, I get
a message that says there are "There are no jobs for this data

If possible, I would like to upload FASTA files myself to our local
Galaxy instance.  For reasons which I'm still working on (and which is
unrelated to Galaxy), download times are very long.  Since I have the
FASTA file already, it might be easier to upload one myself; but if
that's not something Data Managers can do, I guess I can just start
the download and set it aside...

Thank you!
