I had to recently rebuild my WordPress site and migrated it to Azure App Services. The decision took testing and some reading, but I landed on using the App Service route due to the ease of deployment and want to have this experience similar to other hosting sites where its minimal maintenance. With the reasoning there, I thought of share my recent experience and a how I implemented WordPress with Azure App Service and how quick it can be done.
Before we begin here are a few prerequisites:
– Azure Subscription to tie the App Service too
– Permission to Register and Configure an App Service and Resource Group (If one does not exist)
