Using OCI to install Drupal and MySQL 8.0

My previous post related on how to install WordPress on Oracle Cloud seemed to be very popular. To continue the exploration of OCI, today we will install Drupal.

This time, even if it’s possible to use the Free Trier like in the WordPress post, I will use a pay account to have the possibility to split the Web Server and the Database into two different subnets. Both instances will have their own subnet and only the Webserver will be reachable directly from the Internet. MySQL will be installed on a private subnet that could reach Internet only via a NAT gateway.

This is an overview of the proposed architecture:

At the end of the blog you will also be able to see this process in video.

Using OCI to install WordPress and MySQL 8.0

Today we will see how to install WordPress in Oracle Cloud (OCI).

We will use Oracle Cloud’s Free Trier and deploy 2 compute instances:

  • the webserver (apache, PHP and WordPress)
  • the database server (MySQL 8.0)

We will use one public IP to reach our site and our two servers will communicate using their own private network:

Deploying 2 compute instances

Let’s start by creating 2 compute instances:

We will use the Oracle Linux 7.7 on Micro Instances:

As I am in Belgium, I use the Frankfurt datacenter.

When our instances are deployed, we can find the public IP of one of them. This is the one we will use as webserver (you can free the public IP on the other one, the MySQL one):

At the creation, we entered a ssh key to access …

Deploy MySQL InnoDB Cluster in OCI with Terraform

As you know, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (aka OCI) becomes more and more popular. You can find OCI data centers almost everywhere and the price is very attractive.

Something very interesting is the possibility to have different availability domains but also different fault-domains in the same availability one !

Oracle provides a lot of modules to deploy your architecture on OCI using Terraform. Those are called oracle-quickstart repos. You can find them on Github.

There is an official Reference Architecture for MySQL InnoDB Cluster in OCI that I encourage you to read before deploying your MySQL HA solution …
