Upload many files (>10) via FTP


  1. Make sure to have an FTP client installed

    There are many options. We can recommend FileZilla, a free FTP client that is available on Windows, MacOS, and Linux.

  2. Establish FTP connection to the Galaxy server
    1. Provide the Galaxy server’s FTP server name (e.g. usegalaxy.org, ftp.usegalaxy.eu)
    2. Provide the username (usually the email address) and the password on the Galaxy server
    3. Connect
  3. Add the files to the FTP server by dragging/dropping them or right clicking on them and uploading them

    The FTP transfer will start. We need to wait until they are done.

  4. Open the Upload menu on the Galaxy server
  5. Click on Choose FTP file on the bottom
  6. Select files to import into the history
  7. Click on Start
