    at t-5:20 he mentions how you can rename the /core directory, but does not give details on what is required to accomplish this.

    Can some kind soul point me to where I might find this info?

    • This can be easily done at install, I’m sure it can be done after by changing some configs but not sure how, sorry.
      • I think your starting point would be the file core/config/config.inc.php
        if (!defined('MODX_MANAGER_PATH')) {
            $modx_manager_path= '/home/peter/workspace/hcs/manager/';
            $modx_manager_url= '/manager/';
            define('MODX_MANAGER_PATH', $modx_manager_path);
            define('MODX_MANAGER_URL', $modx_manager_url);


        change to something like
        if (!defined('MODX_MANAGER_PATH')) {
            $modx_manager_path= '/home/peter/workspace/hcs/newmanager/';
            $modx_manager_url= '/newmanager/';
            define('MODX_MANAGER_PATH', $modx_manager_path);
            define('MODX_MANAGER_URL', $modx_manager_url);


        and then rename the actual directory newmanager. There might be more to it than that but would suggest this is going to be a key part.
        • After installation, you need to edit the MODX_CORE_PATH in all the config.core.php files:

          config.core.php
          /manager/config.core.php
          /connectors/config.core.php
          /setup/config.core.php (may not be necessary)

          peteedley’s advice would be for renaming/moving the *manager* directory, which is also possible.

          • Thank-you.

            The /manager directory can be moved/config’ed/modified from the ’Contexts installation’ page during set-up (provided you’ve renamed the /manager directory ahead of time.

            I was wondering why they didn’t include the option for /core there, too, but now see that /core is where the config’s are controlled from for the other directories. So you would have to do it after installation (which is no biggie).

            I don’t think /setup would be req’d, cuz that gets deleted after installation.

            I think just the files in /manager & /connectors.

            Can somebody confirm?

                Don’t do this; it wont actually work after an upgrade. You should never touch the config.inc.php file, as setup/ will do that for you.

                Follow the steps below that BobRay posted - then run an upgrade (run setup/).

                • If you move/rename /core, are there any file/install-gymnastics required during subsequent upgrades?

                    No, there shouldn’t be; you just need to edit setup/includes/config.core.php in each new version and set the path for MODX_CORE_PATH before running upgrade.
