This category lists at the bottom of the page all the pages that refer to this category, therefore it is a useful entry point should you wish to explore all pages that are relevant to MX.

It's your Wiki......

We always welcome contributions from the Cumulus Community and if you feel you can contribute, please do.

Every page, linked from this page, was written in the past, newer MX releases may therefore require these pages to be updated, can you help to do that? You will see messages on various pages warning that they are out of date, and asking for your help to add content under some headings.

As a starting point, we suggest you read How to Edit which was written specifically for this Wiki. How_you_can_contribute is full of suggestions on where your help would be appreciated.

Are you willing to help us rewrite this Wiki to document MX, as that has been evolving rapidly since Mark Crossley took over development, so there is still lots to document. In particular, can you help make it more friendly for those whose first encounter with Cumulus is a MX release?

  • If you plan on CONTRIBUTING to the Wiki, then you will need a userid.
    • Please use the Request Account form to apply for a userid (you may have to wait some time for a response), or
    • If you already have a userid, then just Login here (link also available on top right of any page).

When requesting a Wiki account, it would be helpful if you can use the same user name as on the Cumulus forum (but use a different password!), it makes it easier for the admins to identify genuine account requests from spammers.


  • What to do when I have a problem with MX - read this before you seek advice in the Cumulus Support Forum
  • MX Basic info page - contains details like the library functions used by MX beta, and how the end of day process works.
  • Comparing legacy original Cumulus with MX and How to migrate - If you are still using the original Cumulus software; these should help you decide whether to migrate to MX, and how to do it.
  • Setting up Raspberry Pi using a pre-built Image - for those tempted to install MX on a Raspberry Pi, operating in headless mode (instead of connecting a screen and keyboard to it, you do all access to the Pi from another computer on same network). The developer has made life easy for you by combining the Raspberry Pi Lite Operating System with a pre-installation copy of MX.
  • Raspberry Pi computer page A Raspberry Pi computer (and similar devices from other manufacturers) is much simpler than a normal computer, but it can still run various operating systems that allow you to use it perhaps for both running MX and a web server
  • MX on Linux - really easy to install, and run, MX on any simple computer running Linux or a derivative, this page tells you all you need to know
  • MX on Windows - you may be tempted to install MX on a Windows PC, laptop, or similar computer, this page tells you all you need to know
  • How to upgrade to new MX release - whether you have not updated for a long time, or simply wonder whether you are updating the easiest way
  • Cumulus MX FAQ - A new FAQ for MX has been started at another page. As I add the link here, the Cumulus MX FAQ is in a mess, but hopefully someone will have time to sort it out.
  • Cumulus MX Known Issues page was based on Steve Loft's forum post so based on an early beta version of MX, and there has been minimal attempt to update the contents as MX has been developed further and come out of the original beta. Anyone willing to check the linked article and do a further update?
  • Administrative Interface- all about the pages used for settings, correcting log files, and viewing your weather derivatives locally
  • MX application programming local interface has been fully documented by the developer
