WordPress website creation in Azure





 Note



1. If you haven't already, verify you have enabled sandbox above. When the sandbox is enabled, the subscription and resource group that you will use in this exercise are separated. This step is required for all Microsoft Learn exercises that use sandboxes.

 2. Sign in to the Azure portal  with the account you used to activate the sandbox  . Note When working inside the Azure portal and using the Microsoft Learn Sandbox, it is  a good idea to verify that you are always in the  Microsoft Learn Sandbox directory. The directory name will be listed below your email at the top of the page or above your account information when you select the user icon. Also, be sure to enable the sandbox when starting any exercise that uses the sandbox. This way you can be sure that you are reserving the Azure subscription and your own resource group to use for the resources created in this exercise.

3. Expand the left navigation panel.

4. Select Create resource at the top of the Azure portal navigation list  .

5. There are many services, solutions and resources available to you in the Azure Marketplace. Now that we know we want to install WordPress, we can do a quick search for it.  Type WordPress in the Search Market box  above the app options listed   .  Select the default WordPress option from the list of available options  .

6. In the newly displayed panel, you'll find additional information about the item you are about to upload normally, such as its publisher, short description of the resource and links to more information. Be sure to review this information. Select Build to begin the process of building the WordPress application  .

7. You are then offered a variety of options to configure your distribution. Enter the following information:
Application Name : Choose a unique value for the application name. This will form part of the Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN).
Subscription :  Make sure Concierge Subscription is selected.



App Service plan / location : You will change the App Service plan in the next step.



Application Insights : Leave it in the default configuration. Your configuration should look like this: Note  If you still see a section called Database ,  make sure you select the correct Database Provider described in the configuration above  .

 The App Service plan specifies the processing resources and location for the web application. Select App Service plan / location .

 Enter  a name for the new service plan in the new App Service plan panel  .

Select Central US  as the Location to  make sure you choose a region that allows the service plan of your choice  . Normally, you should choose the region closest to your customers while providing the services you need.

Select Pricing tier to view performance and feature options for various service plan types  .

The Specification Selector  allows us to choose a new pricing tier for our application. The Production  tab of this screen  opens and the pricing tier S1 is selected. We will  select the new pricing tier for our website from the  Development / Test tab. Select the Dev / Test  tab and  F1  pricing tier. Then  choose Apply .
Return to the new App Service plan  panel and  select OK to create the new plan and close the panel.
Finally,  select Create to start the deployment of your new site  .
If you run into a problem creating resources, be  sure to select the F1 pricing tier in the new App Service plan section  . This is a sandbox requirement that occurs when


creating a WordPress site.
