AWS: POC-How to Build WordPress web site in AWS Cloud/Network ?


Most of the Blogs on websites are operated by WordPress[WP] software which is developed in PHP. Even my site [vskumar.blog] is from this software. To setup the WP, there are tier based architecture/setup required. For PHP related software we can have a 2-tier architecture setup.

For detailed analysis and the required AWS components for setting up W, below blog you can visit/follow blog:
https://vskumar.blog/2018/12/31/2-aws-wordpresswp-infrastructure-creation-using-a-free-tier-account/

In this demo video the WP site building project was discussed with different design steps towards AWS components and it was demonstrated well by one of our [experienced IT Professional] students well.


These are weekly assignments they get and they need to prove by themselves with a demo in a team; like live environment how it happens in a typical project team. By attending this activity delivery on weekly basis, one will not get any fear/scareness on doing the live infra tasks. They will be habituated with the project activities when they join in real job. And they will be productive resources from day one onwards. These are the major benefits from my course.
