      Uncaught Error: Class 'Codeception\\Actor' not found in wp-content/plugins/advanced-post-manager/tests/_support/IntegrationTester.php:19

You can look at the official readme.txt

advanced-post-manager/tribe-apm.php 92% from 13 tests

The main PHP script in "Advanced Post Manager" version 4.5.4 is automatically included on every request by WordPress
It is important to fix the following:
  • Main file name: It is recommended to name the main PHP file as the plugin slug ("advanced-post-manager.php" instead of "tribe-apm.php")
