Earlier this month we featured a post on hosting WordPress in the Amazon AWS cloud and arrived at the conclusion that AWS isn’t viable for the average WordPress user.
An alternative could model is Platform as a Service (PaaS), where all the configuration work is taken out of your hands. All you need to do is ensure WordPress itself runs smoothly. This gives you the benefits of the cloud, like auto-scaling and redundancy, without having to manage the underlying hardware yourself.
In this tutorial I’ll walk you through the entire process of deploying WordPress to the open source Cloud Foundry PaaS environment.
