Building a modx site on AWS

Hi all

I’ve had a request to build a modx site and I asked for cpanel access to install modx but they are saying they are on AWS without any control panel.

I’m not sure how to go about installing modx on the server to get started.

What do I need to ask for?

Sorry if I sound daft but only ever used cpanel!

not sure, if that is still relevant today:
Modx on AWS beanstalk | MODX Community Forums

One of the simplest options I’ve followed on AWS has been using my own docker images, that way, I don’t have differences between my dev and prod environments. Also, you can follow the base tutorial, plus create a MySql instance for the data Creating and deploying PHP applications on Elastic Beanstalk - AWS Elastic Beanstalk

Once you get your PHP instance running, ssh into it, download MODX and do the traditional manual installation

One important thing, you should be charging more for this since this requires higher skills than just using cPanel
