I can't re-install any package packed from admin. Error message was something like unknown format or similar.
Am I missing something here or is this another bug in the XC 5.4.x beta?
The problem is that you cannot upload the module for X-Cart 5.3.6.x on X-Cart 5.4.0.x. And tar/tgz/tar.gz formats are acceptable.
To adapt your module you need to manually unpack the version for 5.3.6.x in root X-Cart 5.4.0.x and make the necessary changes:
- Main.php -> main.yaml (possible to generate via command: php xc5 utils:generateMainYaml XC/Example)
- Change module version to 188.8.131.52
- Rebuild the cache
- Enable the module
- Fix bugs if any
