Is it possible to host Wordpress blog to AWS?



Good Afternoon.

I have one general question for all of you guys.

is it possible to host WordPress blog on AWS, if YES then HOW?

I am asking this because I want to learn the AWS.



Yes, it is possible,

You can host essentially anything on an EC2 server
You can use RDS (mysql) for Database
SES for Emails
Cloudfront for CDN.


and any guess about pricing?


It’ll be more expensive than hosting on Digitalocean or Vultr that’s what I know for sure.
I was having $30 bill average for a WordPress with ~ 100k visitors a month.


Thank you for letting me know.


Hi @imamit

After creating instance at AWS EC2, Install WordPress manually following this guide.


I would highly recommend not using local mysql and rather offloading it to aws RDS as that helps improve performance drastically.


Sounds great! Thanks for the feedback.
