Deploying a WordPress website on local Kubernetes using Minikube and storing the data of WordPress inside Amazon RDS (Amazon Relational Database Service) by using Terraform as Infrastructure-as-a-Code.

Steps to perform the above task:

aws configure — profile myprofile

Our next step will be to create the RDS:

Now we will create WordPress pod on local Kubernetes using Minikube:

Working -

Step 1 :

kubectl get all
Checking if any pods are running initially

Step 2:

terraform apply — auto-approve


kubectl get all
kubectl get all

The Wordpress setup:

The Wordpress dashboard is ready for us:
