Working with many different organizations using WordPress, one of the challenges we face is automatically scaling WordPress. One of the stacks that I’ve used:

  • WordPress
  • Apache or NGINX
  • AWS RDS Aurora MySQL
  • AWS Classic Load Balancer
  • AWS Auto Scaling Group
  • AWS CloudFormation
  • AWS Amazon Machine Image (AMI)

I will go over in detail on how I’ve implemented this from a technical implementation view. This is an ongoing development of this document to keep it up to date.
