In this one hour project, I am going to use Microsoft Azure Cloud Platform and its compute services (Virtual Machine) to host and deploy a WordPress Website.
WordPress is a world-class content management platform to create websites, blogs, e-learning systems, and others.
WordPress is one of the most used technologies for website creating, blogs, e-learning platforms, and others. Since WordPress is a PHP-based technology it could be deployed in many ways and many platforms and Microsoft Azure Cloud is one we can use for that.
Azure has Virtual Machines compute service where we can create customized virtual machines using many Windows or Linux flavors. It is perfect for us to deploy a WordPress website and take advantage of the scalability and availability Microsoft Azure offers.
Create an Azure Virtual Networking with some Subnets, define Network Security Groups, and create inbound and outbound rules to support our project.
Create an Azure Virtual Machine and install MySQL server database on that and create user and database
Create an Azure Virtual Machine and install Apache web server, install PHP and download and deploy WordPress CMS software.
Install WordPress, and SQL Server
