Task Description📄

🔅 Create an AWS EC2 instance

🔅 Configure the instance with Apache Webserver.

🔅 Download php application name “WordPress”.

🔅 As wordpress stores data at the backend in MySQL Database server. Therefore, you need to setup a MySQL server using AWS RDS service using Free Tier.

🔅 Provide the endpoint/connection string to the WordPress application to make it work.

It’s a fun task and it has a real-life use case and 1/4th of the world’s websites use Wordpress. I will continue with the demonstration on how to build one…

> Go to your AWS Instance via PuttY through SSH and Install epel-release, httpd, remi for php, mysql config and finally wordpress config from its official website.


> Enable httpd services and setenforce 0, Connect to its public IP and open /wordpress, so it’s Installation page is visible..

> Set-up your email, password and database link provided as an end-point in RDS.
