Next, if you are in the same folder as vapor, so that vapor/vapor.php would be a local path, then try using the ./ construction at the beginning of the path to “anchor” to the current folder. So try

Walter, you might be interested in this: the vapor stuff has to do with the MODX Cloud service <modxcloud.com> (which has a very slick UI).

Easy updating and deployment when ready.
