Ok how do I upgrade or convert to modx right now I am using etomite and want to keep all my present content do I just convert the db or what
Assuming you don't have DocVars installed, you simply run the installer, choosing upgrade as your install method. Make sure to back everything up first, of course, as a precaution. Should take much longer to download than to upgrade.
