After you’ve completed the prerequisites and Helm is installed and working; We can deploy our Wordpress site. This Helm chart will deploy MariaDB and Wordpress as well as configure a service ingress point for us to access the site through an elastic load balancer.
For our testing we’ll be deploying Wordpress. We could just use a PHP file on the nodes and run NGINX to test as well, but with this Wordpress install you get experience deploying a Helm chart. And can use the load testing tool to hit various URLs on the Wordpress structure to generate additional network traffic load with multiple concurrent connections.
