Traditional Installation Package
To install this software, follow the basic installation guide.
Advanced Installation Package
These packages are slightly less than half the size of the "Regular" downloads, since the "core" contents are compressed. MODX Setup will try to unpack or "build" this package during install. It's recommended you only use this if you plan to move the core, manager or connectors directories, and you have SSH access and are familiar with making folders writable.
SDK Installation Package
Includes the MODX Revolution build assets, ExtJS debug files, and additional features for MODX Extras developers.
