Run WordPress in the Cloud With Laravel Forge

The other day I wrote a guest post over on the WP Tavern about using Laravel Forge to run WordPress in the cloud.

Laravel Forge now offers 1-click installs of WordPress on any cloud server. In the post I go through how to create a new server, provision it in a secure way, setting up a MySQL database, installing WordPress and installing a free SSL certificate. All made super easy by Forge.

Using Forge with WP Pusher

Forge and WP Pusher plays very well together. Use Forge to set up the server and install WordPress. Then use WP Pusher to install you plugins and themes from GitHub or Bitbucket. Forge will take care of keeping the server up to date with security releases and new SSL certificates, WordPress will take care of updating itself and WP Pusher will take care of updating plugins and themes when you commit and push a change.

If you have any questions about Forge, WordPress, Git or WP Pusher, don’t hesitate asking it here or send me an email.
