How to create a WordPress blog site in 5 minutes using Azure Websites

13 בMarch 2014

Hello everyone, today I’m going to show you how you can create your own WordPress blog in 5 minutes using Windows Azure websites components

Let’s start

Logon to azure management portal.

Go to -> Compute -> Website -> From Gallery


Then on the left side choose Blogs and then Choose WordPress and hit the next button


Then choose your URL (which will be *.azurewebsites.net), choose a MySQL database (if you didn’t create one before, a database will be created for you), choose a region and hit next

Note that: there are some deployment settings of the WordPress that you can fill if you wish


Then you will have to insert the database name that you wish and the region (my suggestion is to place it in the same region that you located the WordPress website) and hit the next button

Note that: you’ll have to accept the disclaimer which says that your information will be transferred to ClearDB Company


Now azure will create your WordPress site and the DB as well and then you will be able to see the site under the websites


Then you can browse to the URL and you will see the WordPress installation page


Enter your site title, username, password & e-mail and hit on “install WordPress” and you are ready to go


That’s it

Good luck J
