I created a new package using a virtual machine and now I need to install it to the real machine. Can I paste the directory to .../openacs/packages and then use the Package Installation?
you can tell the apm to make a .apm,
you can copy the files... you could tar them up first... you can commit them to a git repo and push that up... the basic deal, is you get the files of the package into packages/ of the place you want to install, then go to the package manager to activate the package. after doing this you probably have to restart the server
