Best Practices for WordPress on AWS

WordPress is an open-source blogging tool and content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL that is used to power anything from personal blogs to high-traffic websites.

When the first version of WordPress was released in 2003, it was not built with modern elastic and scalable cloud-based infrastructures in mind.

Today, it is possible to build a WordPress architecture that takes advantage of many of the benefits of the AWS Cloud.
