To get started, you’ll need the following:
- Azure subscription
Installing WordPress in AKS with Helm
Set up an Azure Kubernetes Service with the following:
- Node size – desired VM size (cheapest available is B2s)
- Node count – need to use at least a minimum of 1.
After AKS is set up, connect to it with the following:
az aks get-credentials --resource-group AKS_RG --name AKS_NAME
Create a second file
Now install WordPress with the following commands:
helm install --name blog -f values.yml -f values.secrets.yml stable/wordpress
After installation, run the following command to get the external IP:
kubectl get svc --namespace default -w blog-wordpress
Once the IP is ready, you’ll likely need to wait for the pods to finish loading. You can check their status with:
kubectl get pods
Once ready, try accessing the IP address to get the WordPress installation.
