Sudden isssues with MODx filesystem changes.

  • Answered

We have been using MODx, a free CMS for our development for a couple months now without issues. Today though, I went to go publish a change to a css file through the built in filesystem editor and it is not letting me save. Were there recent changes made to the server that could be blocking these changes? I have not made any changes to the software and it was working very well earlier this week.

Hello Dwleonard, They just tried to implement a new mod_security update, but it was affecting other things (like MODx), so it was reverted. Are you still having problems now with publishing? If so, please let us know. You can either leave a comment here or respond to our live tech support team via phone/chat/email. The efforts to upgrade has to do with the brute force attacks occurring on Wordpress sites. For more information on stopping brute force attacks, please go to Stopping Brute Force Attacks If you have any further questions, please contact technical support available 24 hours a day / 7 days a week.
