MODX Cloud Update July 23

We've continued improving workflows and fixing minor bugs to make for a more pleasant user experience, and to future-proof MODX Cloud. The biggest change in this update is that MODX Cloud now serves your sites via PHP 5.6.x and nginx 1.8.x. Most sites should perform faster thanks to improved opcache and code efficiency, and we’ve ensured your sites will be on a stable, supported server stack. Other highlights include:

  • Improved documentation for SSL, nginx rewrites and overall organization.
  • <li>Improved reliability and behavior of robots.txt when the same domain was accidentally added to multiple times or to multiple Clouds.</li>
    <li>Fixed a bug with next invoice display for some users.</li>
    <li>Solved a bug where some users had blank pages requiring a refresh when Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) was enabled.</li>
    <li>Updated the billing system to accommodate the upcoming launch of Private Servers.</li>
    <li>And finally, don’t forget anyone can test sites running under SSL for free when building new projects on the internal <em>c000X.paas…</em> MODX Cloud URLs.</li>

Ihr habt entschieden!

We asked MODX Cloud users where they’d like to see MODX Cloud next, and the results are in. Frankfurt is first in line, by a decisive margin.

This first expansion will be followed by London, Australia and Canada. Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote! We’re not planning to stop here, but if you find MODX Cloud useful, but need server(s) in your location sooner, contact us about our Private Servers that can make that a reality today.

MODX Diagnostics

MODX’s Open Source software is 100% free for anyone to download and use. As the team behind it for more than a decade, we know it inside, out, and then some.

Like any software, sometimes things break; we can usually fix them very fast. But, we do have to charge for our time to support our families and fund its ongoing development. There are almost an unlimited variety of things that can cause problems, including server upgrades, corrupt files, accidental changes, outdated software, database hiccups and more. We will save you a lot of time and frustration, and get you back in action.

With our MODX Diagnostic service, we determine the source of issues, and often fix them on the spot. For more extensive problems needing more time, like hacked sites or overdue upgrades, we provide additional estimates and guidance. MODX Diagnostics cost $99 for standard business hours support (US Central Time), or $500 for priority, rush or after-hours emergencies.

If you don’t have budget for professional support from the source, you look for answers in the MODX Forums or Documentation, or seek help from MODXers in the Community Slack, or from MODX Professionals near you.
