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?

Want to promote your upcoming event?

Are you going to an event? Are you going to be exhibiting at a tradeshow? Talking at a conference? Using a promotional banner in your email signature ensures that your organization’s most important contacts stay in the know and can potentially spread the word about the event.

Looks like its not fully supported after speaking to Microsoft so am deploying a Linux server to host this site.

Thanks

Will my email signature work in Office 365?

You've built an email signature using raw HTML code in Office 365, but you can't review how it looks with Transport Rules. So you have to test it over and over again before it can be used. Isn't this a bit of a waste of your time? Wouldn't a WYSIWYG editor make it a lot easier?
