Hosting WordPress on Google Cloud
Our wordpress website, which is our corporate website, was not only badly in need of a facelift, but it was about time we upgraded to WordPress 5.4. So in this video I’m showcasing our GitOps Platform called AppZ. We are using this platform to deploy our new WordPress 5.4 site onto Google Cloud. The changes and content were tested on a different site for staging on Google Cloud initially, and then on the 20th of July we decided to take it live. So using our GitOps platform, it was simply a one-click deployment. So as you can see in this video, I’m taking the Appz.yaml which controls the deployment and basically editing the URL, to change from test URL to live URL. Simply by saving and committing to Github, our platform Appz builds the docker image and deploys the new website to Google Cloud under the Manage Kubernetes platform within Google Cloud called GKE.
