Just like any piece of software, our Extras have minimum requirements to run on your server. We increase these requirements regularly so we can take advantage of new features and possibilities to provide you with better tools.
The following requirements are for all of our extras, and were last updated on 2018-03-12.
- MODX Revolution 2.5.x or up;
- Using MODX with a MySQL database;
- PHP version 5.5.0 or higher;
- Plus all requirements that are needed for MODX
Some extras may have other requirements as well. Keep an eye out for those requirements in the documentation.
Keeping MODX up-to-date
We use a rolling support schedule for MODX releases. When a new minor version (e.g. 2.6.0) is released, we continue to support the previous version for one year. We also aim to resolve, or at the very least acknowledge, any conflicts with new versions within two weeks of their stable release.
Following this schedule, we ended support for MODX 2.2 on on July 16th, 2015 (see announcement), for 2.3 on August 19th, 2016 (see announcement), and for 2.4 on April 22nd, 2017 (see announcement). Support for MODX 2.5 will expire on March 12th, 2019 (see announcement).
MODX 3 is currently being worked on by a project team. When it comes out, we'll need to evaluate the effort involved in making our extras work. As the specific changes in MODX 3 are uncertain, we can't make any promises yet, but will post on our blog as soon as we have a plan.
We welcome bug reports related to MODX 3 through the usual channels, but will prioritise keeping our extras working in MODX 2.x if there are breaking changes to address.
