What Consists of This Blog

Like I said in my previous blog, I have moved my blog from iPage.com to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. There were 2 motivation to move my blog to my own Cloud. One was because iPage.com was very slow. It’s a cheap service so I was getting what I was paying for. My second motivation was I wanted to Dockerize everything just because I was very curious about what I could do with the technical knowledge I learned over the years. So, what consists of this blog?

  • A Ubuntu VM
  • VM.Standard.E3.Flex Shape
  • 1 CPU with 2GB Memory
  • Docker CE
  • MySQL Container
  • phpMyAdmin Container
  • WordPress Container
  • NGINX Container as a Reverse Proxy
  • All Containers are in docker-compose YAML file
  • Internet Gateway
  • Security List to accept traffic from the Internet to the VM.
  • Change to A Record in iPage.com’s DNS to the public IP address.

I have used Terraform to provision the VM so that I can consistently reprovision the same VM over and over.

I will write about the details more in the coming weeks as I organize what I have done to accomplish the migration.
