We’ll be using the bitnami charts repository to install WordPress to our EKS cluster.

In your Cloud9 Workspace terminal you just need to run the following commands to deploy WordPress and its database.

# Create a namespace wordpress
kubectl create namespace wordpress-cwi

# Add the bitnami Helm Charts Repository
helm repo add bitnami

# Deploy WordPress in its own namespace
helm -n wordpress-cwi install understood-zebu bitnami/wordpress

You can follow the status of the deployment with this command

kubectl -n wordpress-cwi rollout status deployment understood-zebu-wordpress
