Installing WordPress in Microsoft Azure

By | January 7, 2019

Step 1

Log into the Azure portal and click “Create a resource”.

Step 2

In the search bar, search with the keyword WordPress.

Step 3

Choose the first option WordPress.


Step 4

Click on Create in the new blade to submit the web app details.

Step 5

  • Enter the name of the app.
  • Choose a subscription whichever is applicable to you.
  • You can create a new resource group or choose an existing one.
  • Under database provider, we are going to choose MySQL in App.
    What it does is, if your website is going to a static website where you will not be updating content, so often, like your profile website or a basic company website, choosing MySQL in-app option lets you save on cost by creating MySQL instance within the application so you don’t have to have a dedicated back-end server.
    Note – MySQL in-app will have only one instance for the database that cannot be increased or scaled up. I would recommend choosing this option only for simple website building.

Step 6

Create a new service plan or choose an existing plan if you already have an App Service Plan created.

  • Name the service plan.
  • Choose a location where you would like to deploy your app.
  • Select a pricing tire depending on your requirement.

Finally, click on “Select” and OK to create an App Service Plan.



Step 7

Click “Create”. Wait until the app gets created.


Step 8

Once the app is created, Click “Go to resource”


Step 9

Then click on the Browse option in the app.


Step 10

You will be taken to the WordPress installation procedure. Select the language you will be using and click “Continue”.


Step 11

Here, you will be filling in your website details. Click “Install”.


Step 12

If the installation was successful, you will be asked to log into the site.


Step 13

Enter the login details which were entered in the previous step and click “Login”.


Step 14

So, you have successfully installed and logged in to your WordPress website. And this is going to be your WordPress dashboard.


Step 15
