Deploying & Scaling Wordpress 4 on Ubuntu 14.04

With the recent release of Wordpress 4.0 I’ve written up a new guide to deploying it in a scalable fashion to Ubuntu 14.04 on Brightbox.

The deploying Wordpress guide covers the creation of a cloud MySQL instance to hold your blog contents, and a single linux cloud server to present the front-end to your visitors.

Next week we’ll be publishing a followup post showing how you can scale that installation using a Cloud Load Balancer.
