  • I'm installing Revo 2.3 both locally and on my hosting account and getting the following error on the Installation Sumamry screen

    The install failed because MODX could not unpack the /home/sites/modx23/public_html/core/packages/core.transport.zip package. Make sure that the /home/sites/modx23/public_html/core/packages/core.transport.zip file exists and is writable, and that you have made the /home/sites/modx23.com/public_html/core/packages/ directory writable.

    I know it's not oficially released so I am visiting this page
    https://github.com/modxcms/revolution
    and hitting the download ZIP button.

    I notice that core.transport.zip doesn't seem to be included in the downloaded ZIP so possibly I am doing something wrong?

    • You have to build that package before you can install it.

      Go into the _build directory and remove the .sample part from the four files. The in your browser run the _buld/transport.core.php file. You should see a screenfull of stuff scrolling up. Once that is finished you can use /setup to install as usual.

        • You can also get it ready-to-go at the MODX downloads page, the "Nightlies" tab (although it's not really a nightly build).
