Upgrading is Important

Revolution 2.5.2 contained critical security enhancements, and if you are not yet running 2.5.2 or higher, or if you recently upgraded to 2.6.2, you should upgrade to 2.6.4 now. See below for more info.

We cannot stress the importance of diligently upgrading to the latest version of MODX enough. While no software is 100% secure, powering your site with the most current version usually helps protect you from hackers that rely on exploiting outdated software. If you're not sure what version of MODX Revolution you're running, log into your website Manager. If the version number doesn't appear in the top left-hand corner of the Manager, go to Manage>Reports>System Info.

If you need help upgrading your site, please contact your website builder, find a MODX Professional or get in touch with MODX Support.
