Saga 3 Mammoth AZURE Pattern: WordPress Image Deployment
8:16am - 23/Sep/2015

WordPress is the web publisher’s platform de jour.  It is used more than 4M times in websites on the web and who knows how many intranet sites.  So this saga is about putting up WP on AZURE and the lessons learned.  Now most folk using WP don’t just take WP out of the box.  Further, WP requires a SQL DB to hold the media content that is presented in the WP.  WP acts like a framework for quickly building web content and managing the content.  AZURE provides at least 2 ways of providing a WP AZURE hosted solution.  Way one is with an unbundled solution where the developer assembles the AZURE components.  The second way is to use an AZURE preconfigured bundle and apply software changes as required.  I guess the 2 readers of this blog can guess pros and cons.  Both were done and successfully in this deployment in under 1 day elapsed time.  Billing of the DB was the longest time.  So use AZURE marketplace at will.  (PS, I never checked the images for security malware.  I sure hope MS has!!)
