Hi Paul,

These failures may be due to the fact that many browsers will simply
fail to upload files > 2GB (although I know there are people out there
have successfully done it).

Tilahun, I'll echo Paul's suggestion to use the Production setup.  There
are also alternative options for getting data into Galaxy.  For users,
you can have an FTP server (or just a local directory on the server
where they can place files for upload):

  https://bitbucket.org/galaxy/galaxy-central/wiki/Config/UploadViaFTP

Or you can use data libraries and load directly off filesystems
accessible to the server:

  https://bitbucket.org/galaxy/galaxy-central/wiki/DataLibraries/UploadingFiles
