Hi I am looking to migrate a MODX website over to my Azure account but my developer is having problems getting this working.

Can anyone let me know what steps are required to get a MODX website working please.

Many thanks

Hi I will have to check with the developer on that.

I have just been told the issues are as follows
Website Permalinks don't work and the site manager often either times out or displays 'The page cannot be displayed because an internal server error has occurred. '

Earlier today there were changes in Outlook.com
There may be ripples in other parts of Azure.
So as yet we don't know where to point the finger for timeouts.
Have you considered another hosting provider?
