The Importance of Being Current

The most effective way to ensure the safety of your MODX site and it's data is to always be running the latest version of the MODX software. MODX continues to grow in popularity and profile which only makes it a more prominent target for attack.

MODX will typically release security patch releases within days of a report of a critical vulnerability. Once they release a patch, you should make sure it gets applied to your MODX website. Recovery from site compromise is often very time consuming and can be catastrophic or very expensive.

What version is my site running?

Your current version can be found once logged into the manager along the top, in the right-hand corner. Please reference our blog post on How to find out what version of MODX you have for more help.
