shinyServer(function(input, output) {

output$report <- downloadHandler(
    filename = "report.html",
    content = function(file) {
      # Copy the report file to a temporary directory before processing it, in
      # case we don't have write permissions to the current working dir (which
      # can happen when deployed).
      tempReport <- file.path(tempdir(), "report.Rmd")
      file.copy("report.Rmd", tempReport, overwrite = TRUE)
      # Set up parameters to pass to Rmd document
      infile4 <- input$cleanedFile
      params <- list(n = infile4$datapath)
        rmarkdown::render(tempReport, output_file = file,
                          params = params,
                          envir = new.env(parent = globalenv())
