Hi Antonio,

Maybe I didn't well explained myself, I don't have the package I just have the apm file. And I always used to install packages by uploading them in the .../openacs/packages/ folder but I never did with the apm file, I don't know if it possible and even if it's possible, I don't know how to do it :(

Apparently (and iirc), apm files are files compressed via gzip[1]. One loads them through via the APM according to directory package instructions[2].

It's in the apm part of the server:

/acs-admin/apm -> Click on "Load a new package from a URL or local directory."

Short URL is this: /acs-admin/apm/package-load

The /acs-admin/apm interface is not reachable from the UI as far as I know. Most of us know it exist, but maybe we should link it somwhere.

It is reachable over the interface:

"Developer's Admin" (aka /acs-admin/developer)

"Package manager" (aka /acs-admin/apm)

"Load a new package from a URL or local directory." (aka /acs-admin/apm/package-load)
