This post continues as the second part of the Running October on AWS series. In this article, we are going to install the web server software and October CMS on the Staging server. We will also create an Amazon Machine Image (AMI), containing the configured web server and October installation.
We are often asked by the community whether websites and applications built with October CMS can be scalable and if it’s possible to build a high-availability infrastructure running October. In this post series we will explain how to build cloud infrastructure using Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Today we've released a small but important update to the marketplace. We have always been using the number of projects as the popularity indicator for free plugins and themes. From now on the marketplace will display the number of installations for free products instead. This is a more precise method of showing how popular a product is within the October community.

1Pilot is an advanced monitoring and management platform for all your OctoberCMS sites. The service launched with an extended free-trial period in November 2018, when more than 150 users tested the platform with over 500 sites, many of whom have carried on using the full post-launch service. The team at inetis have been working hard to launch the full 1Pilot service, which went live in February 2019. Since then, inetis has released its first batch of major updates, which bring exciting and useful new tools to the platform as suggested by early-adopters.

For a long time, it proudly took first place in the Best Paid Plugins chart. We asked Michał Płodowski, the plugin author, to share his experience of developing, supporting and selling a popular product on the October marketplace.

Since the day when our first marketplace author published the first third-party plugin, we’ve received new product review requests almost daily. As of today, there are more than 600 plugins on the marketplace, and now we can see trends and stats which help us to optimize the plugins marketplace and make it simpler for the October CMS community to find extensions they want to use in their projects. Today we are rolling out some important updates, which will improve marketplace usability and remove some unnecessary elements.

Several years ago, while searching for a new platform to counter technical difficulties with MODX, they have decided to make the transition to October CMS.
