Wordpress Web App in Azure Gov
Working with a MAG customer who wants to migrate several WordPress sites to Azure. They would like to leverage PaaS whenever possible and would prefer to deploy the Word Press Web Apps offering rather than building their own solution on IaaS VMs or using VM images published by vendors in the MarketPlace, most of which are not an option due to the OS distro included. When will the PaaS WordPress Web App offering might be available in MAG?
The Wordpress template has a dependency in Azure database for MySQL and App Service on Linux, neither of which are available in Azure Government yet.
For development and testing purposes, you can use this template which uses MySQL In-App and App Service on Windows:
Alternatively, for production purposes, you can still use App Service on Windows and an IaaS-based MySQL backend instead.
When you say you can manually create a web app what exactly do you mean? Are you suggesting that WordPress can be installed in a WebApp? Can you point to documentation for how to do this?
Feature request moved over to the Azure Government forum for continued research into support.
Azure Gov does not have Wordpress template in its marketplace since Azure database for MySQL is not yet supported here. Also not App Service on Linux/ Web app for containers is not yet supported on Azure Gov.
You can although , manually create a web app , for MySQL use MySQL in-app for small sites or setup MySQL server on Azure virtual machine . Note that the web app are running on Windows .
