Installing Joomla Web App on your #Azure Kubernetes Cluster #AKS #Containers #DevOps

Leave a comment


When you have your Microsoft Azure Kubernetes Cluster (AKS) created and running in the Cloud you want to run some pods (Containers) for your Business Solution. In the Next steps I created a Joomla CMS Web App on my Kubernetes Cluster in Microsoft Azure by playing with some tooling.

First I installed Chocolatey via Powershell in the Administrator modus :

Set-ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Scope Process -Force; iex ((New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadString(‘https://chocolatey.org/install.ps1’))

With Chocolatey v0.10.11 I installed Helm on my Windows10 Surface by typing :

Choco install kubernetes-helm

Type helm init

Here you find the Helm QuickStart Guide for your commands on your Azure Kubernetes Cluster

Type : helm repo update

This will update your stable repository packages

With the following command I installed Joomla CMS on my Azure Kubernetes Cluster (AKS) :

helm install stable/joomlaΒ  ( In Powershell )

When you have Visual Studio Code installed with the Kubernetes Extension you can manage your Joomla
web application for Content Management.

Here you can inside the Pods (Containers) via terminal

But most important is that your workload ( Joomla CMS Web App ) is running in the Cloud on a Scalable Azure Kubernetes Cluster for the Business.

Hope this Quick Guide is helpful for you and your Business.
