Kuberenetes on Google Cloud specifically. Just thought I’d see how it looks and works. Now I’ve moved my production blog over from my self-hosted linode. Running WordPress in a container with a separate MySQL container is working well!
Some features I really like over my roll-it-yourself approach:
- Upgrades are now seamless, no more update notifications, the docker container is setup to allow auto-updating.
- Plugins don’t need to be installed manually, they just install.
- Same with themes!
- Themes are easily customizable, no more mucking with permissions.
- It seems faster, but that may be because its running on a separate server from MySQL.
