Previously I’ve discussed the basics of init containers and shown how to deploy WordPress locally. But if you’ve already got a domain handy and are ready to move your WordPress site to a staging or production environment please continue. I’ll use Digital Ocean but you could use any hosting provider you like so long as you can use them to deploy some VPS instances for yourself during the setup below. I’ve been using this method to host Chicago Gang History for over three years.
When you are finished you will have a hardened WordPress site deployed to Kubernetes using Ansible capable of handling up to 80K users per month.
