As I said, we've generated MODX files in the past and it's just not feasible. AutoMOD will most likely end up using more time and resources than most people have allocated in PHP, and that's just to parse the file, let alone run all of the changes. We used to use AutoMOD to make sure the MODX file was correct, and it took some time to run. The Development team dropped that package a long time ago and Support generated them for a short time, but we then dropped it for the current system that we have now. The files are just too large to make it a feasible option anymore. The bottom line is that simply will not be generating that package anymore. You are welcome to generate it yourself though: MODX Generator

For a modified board, your best bet is to use the Automatic Updater and if there are conflicts, use the Code Changes page to resolve it.

Use the automatic update package then. Due to the things Noxwizard mentioned, it wouldn't be feasible to use AutoMOD for that. If there is an automatic update package there is no need for doing that anyways.

Still only implies 3.0.9-RC1 is the latest version, so you would not be prompted for an update.

----

Also install/index.php includes,

Code: Select all

require($phpbb_root_path . 'includes/startup.' . $phpEx);
startup.php wasn't added until this RC2 so by requiring it in an automatic update is going to fail, because it hasn't been processed by the update package.

Thanks, fixed.
