More Flexibility for your Projects in MODX Cloud

Many customers told us how much they love the speed, stability and performance of MODX Cloud for Revo, but they wanted other PHP apps without workarounds, too. Today, their wait is over.

We’re excited to introduce Flex Clouds—a standalone Cloud type that comes with an empty database, SSH and SFTP, ready for you to install virtually anything that runs on a modern nginx/MySQL/PHP stack. Automatic rolling 7-day offsite backups keep your Flex Cloud projects safe, so you can sleep well at night.

For front-end developers, Flex Clouds support Sass and Compass Watch. For those that live in IDEs and Text Editors, you can use the command line for modern developer tools like Composer, Git, cron, shell scripts, rsync, Nano and Vim (sorry Emacs).

Many customers have been holding on to legacy hosting accounts to run their MODX Evolution and WordPress sites; today we have removed the barrier to moving to MODX Cloud. You can now have all your legacy and current projects in a single place, and update them to MODX Revolution when the time is right.

For customers on the original plans, we will shift your WordPress Clouds to the new Flex Cloud type; you won’t need to do anything. If you need a new WordPress Cloud, use the Flex Cloud type and install the latest version from the web installer or from a CLI tool of your choice. We’ll add instructions for installing WordPress and MODX Evolution, and other apps that you request.

This is just the first of several other expanded capabilities coming to MODX Cloud this year. Keep an eye out for what’s next, and tell us what you’d like to see.

Tell us the general reason for reaching out so we can connect you with the right team.

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an unlimited variety of things that can cause problems, including server upgrades, corrupt files, accidental changes, outdated software, database hiccups and more.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.
