I was referred to this site by a peer and she mentioned there is a Galaxy expert here that might be able to help with an issue I am having. I have setup a new server with the latest version of Galaxy on it using Postgres. All of Galaxy runs fine without any issues. I then setup ProFTP according to the instructions that the Galaxy Wiki page provided, but I am not able to FTP to the server using the Galaxy credentials. After a few days of trying different things, I decided to downgrade Galaxy to the Oct, 2014 release. Still having the same issues. Below are the versions of the software I am using currently.

Galaxy - Oct 2014 release

ProFTPD - 1.3.6rc1

Python - 2.6.6

If there is someone that has experience with the setup of the FTP integration, let me know and I can post the configurations and error logs.

Thanks,

Joe Koral

You might also try the Galaxy-specific version of biostars if the link Ian posted doesn't suffice.

Thanks, I did not realize that was there. I will post there as well.

A colleague of mine set up a blog "Galactic Engineer", it has an article that I think covers this:

Thanks for the reply. I have read that article over and over. My configuration is setup almost exactly like his. The only difference is that I am using the PBKDF2 password setup (actually I have tried it the SHA1 way as well). So I do not have use_pbkdf2 = False, but I have tried it that way as well. Just as a side note: I originally copy/pasted his like it was listed on that site, but there is a typo (use_pbkfd2 = False). The "d" and the "f" are reversed. So can let him know?

I am receiving the following error log when attempting to log in via FTP.

'pbkdf2' SQLAuthType handler reports failure

Thanks

@jkoral I am the author of the blog post that @Ian linked to in his comment above. Thanks for pointing out the typos, I have now fixed them. However contrary to your comments our setup *does* use PBKDF2 encryption.

When debugging our setup I found running proftpd from the command line with the `-n -d 10` options was helpful as I could check the debugging messages from the server as I tried to connect (however maybe you're also doing this).

It's also a good idea to check that the database connection credentials in the `SQLConnectInfo` directive of the proftpd config file, for example by using them to connect directly to the database via the command and performing a `SELECT` command on the `galaxy_user` database table.
