WordPress is an open-source blogging tool and content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL that is used to power anything from personal blogs to hightraffic websites.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides a reliable, scalable, secure, and highly performing infrastructure for the most demanding applications. A reference architecture that addresses common scalability and high availability requirements has been outlined in the whitepaper, “WordPress: Best Practices on AWS”.
To implement that architecture, you can leverage AWS Elastic Beanstalk—a service that reduces complexity by automatically handling the details of capacity provisioning, load balancing, scaling, and application health monitoring. This whitepaper provides system administrators with an overview of the steps involved.
