What is MODx?
MODx is an open source Content Management System. The CMS works as a PHP Application Framework that helps users publish/maintain their websites easily. What’s great about MODs is that it empowers developers and advanced users to give as much control as desired to whomever they desire for day-to-day website content maintenance chores.
As mentioned in their official website, MODx began in late 2004 out of the desire to have an expendable content management system on which to build standards compliant websites that perform exceptionally well in search engines (Yes indeed it is! When compare with Joomla and Drupal, MODx offer better SEO value).
MODx at Bluehost
Not all hosting companies provide easy installation for MODx as the CMS is not included in Fantastico’s script list. However that’s not the case for Bluehost. One of the best thing I like Bluehost is that they support both SimpleScripts and Fantastico. This offer wider selections for users like me who wish to try out new web applications.
To install MODx, simply sign into your cPanel control panel, go to SimpleScripts, and select MODx from the SimpleScripts index page. It should lead you to a page as above. Click ‘Install Now’ and input a few basic inputs, the whole setup process should be done within minutes.
