Kloxo /script empty!
For some freaking vps problem, i was facing very slow processing with vps from ds.my as usual.
running /script/upcp seems to somehow run halfway and hang...

MODx Revolution and UTF8
If you ever need to insert in latin symbol or unicode into modx title or content...
Modify modx_site_content fields:
+ pagetitle, longtitle, description, introtext, content
to unicode_general_ci encoding.
(Note: This is a fulltext index, so you will have to execute 1 statement to alter all 5 fields)
And also modify template variable content:
ALTER TABLE `modx_site_tmplvar_contentvalues` CHANGE `value` `value` TEXT CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_unicode_ci NOT NULL
Next, modify core/config/config.inc.php and change the line:
+ $database_connection_charset = '
+ $database_dsn = 'mysql:host=...;dbname=...;charset=
And you may start testing it it works :)
In my setup, its somehow in njis charset... (im not sure why)

MODx Revolution Root resource alias / path?
I tried google around on this, and find it difficult to find the result.
I've found a solution to based my resource alias to the root of the site.
By going to system > settings
use_alias_path : no
This will change all your resource alias to be based from root.
Container1 > My page (resourcealias: mypage)
If you need the container path, just put the full folder path:
Resource alias: container1/mypage
