Hey everyone 👋
If there was a serverless version of WordPress, would you try it out?
I’m just curious if anyone has attempted to build a WordPress site using serverless products instead of a self hosted server and database.
I’d love to hear everyone’s thoughts and opinions 🙂

I really appreciate everyone’s honest feedback! 😀
yes, but hosted db instances are often very expensive.
there is no serverless. it’s just a servers managed by others. it’s mostly a buzzword for scalable server architectiure, which is already the case with most cloud hosting. if you put your code anywhere, that place is the server. even on serverless setups. just because you don’t actually see it, it doesn’t mean it is not there 😀
i may be wrong in which case feel free to correct me.
Yes, like with no php or SQL. Might be written in js maybe?
Serverless =/= No Server
I’m going to say no because the wordpress code was not really designed to be serverless, it is a monolith. I think the compute costs for a serverless deployment would end up being pretty high and cold-start times would probably be bad.
I don’t self-host but if I did I would probably run it in a docker container which suits wordpress’ code design much better.
