WordPress work lifecycle, using containers, and Kubernetes

tl;dr : we are open sourcing our YAML files to run a complete WP lifecycle on K8s


Hi all,

I see a fair bit of discussion re the WP lifecycle and workflow. I also see discussions re using containers for WP. I have tried to help some of the folks, but this might be more useful. Our team uses containers to manage our WP lifecycle. Specifically, we use Kubernetes to manage the containers that run WP. We have decided to open source the K8s YAML files that we use to manage that lifecycle.

Here is the first blog post on that… [https://www.locol.media/blog/2022/07/14/why-kubernetes-for-hosting-wordpress/](https://www.locol.media/blog/2022/07/14/why-kubernetes-for-hosting-wordpress/) I am starting with an intro to our systems, our take on the WP lifecycle, and why we decided to use Kubernetes to manage the containers.

The post has been updated as requested by initial readers to include a section that could help those not familiar with Kubernetes and containers.

Let me know what you think.. I have to clean up our YAML files and add documentation before releasing them, so add your questions and requests and I will see if they can be incorporated into the release.

  1. Been hearing about Kubernetes and Docker containers quite a bit. As someone that comes from the old school VPS world, this write up was a huge help.

    Thanks for talking the time to put it together and share it with us.
