MODX Cloud Update December 23, 2015

We continue making improvements to MODX Cloud to make it a more flexible platform, and to bring things that used to require complex technical chops to everyone.

Most notably, we added support for Node.js in MODX Cloud. This means front-end developers can use it for workflow tools like Bower, Grunt and Gulp, amongst others. If you’d like to try it out, request it for your specific Cloud instance by using the help link in your MODX Cloud Dashboard.

We also want to remind you about the recently added Flex Cloud instances which give you access to the filesystem above webroot. You can use them to install other software like MODX Evolution or another CMS, or even frameworks like Slim, CakePHP and Laravel. Flex Clouds include a highly tuned nginx web server and an empty MySQL database instance. Automatic offsite backups occur every night, and we store them for 7 days on a rolling basis.

A few other noteworthy updates include:

  • Fixed a minor sorting bug to list the accounts you have access to in alphabetical order.
  • MODX Cloud instances can now be upgraded to be fully managed, monitored and maintained for customers on current plans from the Cloud management view. Formal announcement coming soon. ;)
  • Fixed additional UI bugs, adjusted the UI in spots, and updated documentation to improve the overall experience in MODX Cloud.
  • Many, many underlying platform updates to set the foundation for new functionality and products starting in early 2016.

Go check out the MODX Cloud Roadmap, and you tell us what you’d like to see! We look forward to your thoughts.

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an unlimited variety of things that can cause problems, including server upgrades, corrupt files, accidental changes, outdated software, database hiccups and more.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

  I’m not ready to pay, let’s talk…
