Modx Revolution, moving to a new server

Just started using Modx Revolution on a project and it is awesome. Incredible work, and it looks like 2.08 is just out too so I’ll have to get my greasy paws on that.

I had a few issues moving Modx to a new server today. There’s an excellent article on the Modx help site that tells you almost everything you need to know.

If you’re just zipping up your Modx site or copying it and can’t maintain permissions for one reason or another, this can lead to weird problems such as the manager login page not displaying.

So make sure you make the following directories writable by the webserver:


This is just from my experience, so if all these are not necessary, or if I’m missing something, just let me know and I’ll update this post.
