MODX Revolution - where, what, how

Accessing MODX

Once you have installed MODX Revolution using the Deploy4Me service you can work with it using the URL from the passwords. Commonly the URL will be:

http://ec2-....compute.amazonaws.com

If the cloud hosting didn't provide a public DNS name then you can use IP address to access your server and check it:

http://54.....120

If you have defined the custom DNS alias during the deployment, then use it like:

http://my-alias-to-modx.com

Note that DNS record should point to the server public IP address. To prevent problems with DNS you may use Elastic IP, assign it to your instance and point your DNS record to it.

http://ec2-....compute.amazonaws.com/manager/
