Usage/Installation Instructions

  • Vapor may not work on every MODX install. Some unique environments may leave you with incomplete data.
  • Vapor works best via Command Line. Larger installs may time out via HTTP/Browser rendering an incomplete snapshot or none at all.
  • If you have trouble with zip files or package management on your server you may (but not necessarily) encounter issues.
  • While you can package an Advanced install, Advanced installs are not uet available on MODX Cloud. Your site will work with the default core and Manager locations.
  • We have not tested (you’re welcome to) the import of 2.1.x sites.
  • There is a known issue that requires special attention for sites with Articles installed on Revo 2.2.0. See below for instructions.
