Deploying WordPress on OCI with MySQL Database Service: the easy way !

During the MDS webinar on how to deploy WordPress on OCI using MDS (slides & video), I briefly explained how to deploy the full architecture on OCI using Resource Manager and Stacks.

The Stack for that architecture is now available on my github: https://github.com/lefred/oci-wordpress-mds/releases/tag/0.0.1

To deploy it, it’s very easy. In OCI’s Dashboard, go on “Resource Manager” and then choose “Stacks“:

Create a new stack and just drop the …

Using MySQL Database Service for WordPress

Today we will see how to use MySQL Database Service aka MDS with WordPress.

To achieve this easy task, we will use the architecture we already deployed in this article.

We have then two Compute Instances on OCI, 1 running WordPress (Apache and PHP) and one running MySQL 8.0.

The Plan

This is how we will proceed to migrate to MDS with minimal maintenance time, we will:

  1. create a MDS instance
  2. verify if the database is ready to act as replication source
  3. dump the MySQL instance running on OCI for being migrated to MDS.
  4. load the dump in MDS
  5. create a user dedicated to the replication
  6. create a replication channel on MDS (from OCI to MDS)
  7. modify WordPress config to point to MDS

Create a MDS …

MySQL 8.0 InnoDB Cluster with WordPress in OCI – part III

With this post we are reaching the end of our journey to HA for WordPress & MySQL 8.0 on OCI.

If you have not read the two previous articles, this is just the right time.

We started this trip using the MySQL InnoDB ReplicaSet where only 2 servers are sufficient but doesn’t provide automatic fail-over.

In this article we will upgrade our InnoDB ReplicaSet to …

MySQL 8.0 InnoDB ReplicaSet with WordPress in OCI – part II

This article is the second part of our journey to WordPress and MySQL 8.0 High Availability on OCI. The first part can be read here.

We ended part I with one webserver hosting WordPress. This WordPress was connecting locally to MySQL Router using HyperDB add-on. This add-on allows to split the reads & writes on MySQL Servers using replication. And finally we had one MySQL InnoDB ReplicaSet of two …

MySQL 8.0 InnoDB ReplicaSet with WordPress in OCI

Today’s article is again related to WordPress and MySQL 8.0. We will see how we can setup MySQL InnoDB ReplicaSet and configure WordPress to split the load using both MySQL Instances: we will split reads and writes between the Primary and the Secondary member of our ReplicaSet.

This will be the first part of our journey to achieve HA for our WordPress site on OCI and using all MySQL Servers we have deployed. We don’t want to have a server idle just waiting to take over in case of an incident.

MySQL InnoDB ReplicaSet

First some words about MySQL InnoDB ReplicaSet.

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 …

How to Setup a WordPress MySQL Database in the Cloud

WordPress is the largest website builder platform in the world, supporting over 34% of all websites on the internet today. MySQL is a free open source relational database management system that is leveraged across a majority of WordPress sites, and allows you to query your data such as posts, pages, images, user profiles, and more. As any WordPress developer knows, each installation requires a database in the backend, and MySQL is the database of choice for storing and retrieving your WordPress data.

In order for your WordPress website to be able to access, store and retrieve the data in your MySQL database, it needs to be hosted online through a cloud computing service. ScaleGrid offers a convenient way to setup and configure MySQL hosting for your …

Advanced WordPress Search using WpSolr and ElasticSearch

Finding good content on your website is really important. The search feature improves user interaction and helps you to build a readership on your website. WordPress uses the default MySQL database to perform a search which is not great. MySQL is not built for search and if you are serious about building an authority website on WordPress then the search is the module you need to pay good attention.

I have already implemented WordPress search with ElasticSearch here. In this article, I am going to use and review the amazing product called ‘WPSOLR’ built for search.

What is WPSOLR

WpSolr is an advanced WordPress search plugin that can work with Apache Solr and Elasticsearch.

WPSOLR provides out of the box search solution with the following features:

  • Built-in language, synonyms, stop words.
  • Search filter using checkbox, radio box, …

Replace MariaDB 10.3 by MySQL 8.0

Why migrating to MySQL 8.0 ?

MySQL 8.0 brings a lot of new features. These features make MySQL database much more secure (like new authentication, secure password policies and management, …) and fault tolerant (new data dictionary), more powerful (new redo log design, less contention, extreme scale out of InnoDB, …), better operation management (SQL Roles, instant add columns), many (but really many!) replication enhancements and native group replication… and finally many cool stuff like the new Document Store, the new MySQL Shell and MySQL InnoDB Cluster that you should already know if you follow this blog (see these TOP 10 for features for developers and this TOP 10 for DBAs & OPS).

Not anymore a drop in replacement !
