    Can the modx files be zipped directory ready - with out directory folder?

    revolution download files are zipped into folders ie: modx-2.0.6-pl --> directory files.

    The fastest way to get modx up and running is to ftp zip file and unpack on server. (small upload - 45 seconds - 1 minute. Unpack 5 seconds.)
    MAJOR time savor over download to local drive, unzip and then ftp individual directories and files to server. (for cpanel users - File Manager --> select zip file then unpack)

    When the files are placed in a parent folder then zipped it prevents the ability to unpack in directory of choice. unpacking the zip file places it in the modx-2.0.6-pl directory on the server.

    • it’s not really that much of a time saver,
      cause selecting all the files & directories over the ftp client (mine is FlashFXP) and using the "Move" option to relocate them takes only a few seconds, iv’e done it today with 2.0.6 too.

      • Thanks gOmp,

        Never thought of just moving files.
        It is an option in the file manager as well.
        Works just as fast.

        I’ve used ipswitch ws_ftp pro for a decade but FlashFXP looks worth checking out. Very cool looking interface.
