/app - The BLOX open development environment

Included with all BLOX sites is a separate hosted environment referred to as /app ("Slash app"). This is a LAMP environment allowing sites to do their own custom development without requiring additional 3rd-party vendors or resources.

There are limitations and restrictions to development in /app - please see "Cache Control in /app" for some guidelines.

Additionally, because /app is devoted to custom development, TownNews can only offer limited support. If you need help troubleshooting custom PHP or other code, we can offer to do so at an hourly rate.

Files can be uploaded and modified via FTP in the HTML directory of your BLOX domain.
