This Sunday morning, I was playing around with ChatGPT while the movie Deadpool was playing on Netflix in the background. That's when I got an idea to ask ChatGPT this:
In the style of Ryan Reynolds, using some swear words, write a short blog post on how to use Kubernetes to deploy WordPress and MariaDB containers and expose it through ingress and cert-manager with a proper certificate from let's encrypt.
And here is the
verbatim response. It's quite funny, actually.
Hey folks, it's your boy Ryan Reynolds here, and I'm here to talk about Kubernetes and how to deploy the shit out of a WordPress and MariaDB container. First things first, you're gonna need to get your hands on a Kubernetes cluster, whether it's on your local machine or in the damn cloud.
Once you've got that set up, you'll need to create a deployment for your WordPress container and another for your MariaDB container. Make sure to use a damn persistent volume for your MariaDB data so you don't lose all your shit when the container restarts.
Next up, you're gonna want to set up an ingress to expose your WordPress deployment to the outside world. This will allow you to access your shit from a domain name instead of a bunch of random IP addresses. And while you're at it, you should probably set up cert-manager to handle getting a proper SSL certificate from Let's Encrypt for your domain. This will make sure that all your shit is secure and your users won't see any nasty SSL warnings.
And that's it, folks. With these steps, you'll have a fully deployed and secure WordPress and MariaDB setup running on Kubernetes. Just remember, if you're ever having trouble, don't be afraid to ask for help or do some more research. But don't forget, Kubernetes is a powerful tool and can take time to learn, so be prepared to put in some good old fashioned hard work to master it.
While ChatGPT has certainly caught the attention of the media with MSFT investment in OpenAI, remember that it is just an evolution in the domain of AI. For those of us that work in the domain of cloud computing, machine learning and artificial intelligence, large language models (LLM) like ChatGPT are not revolutionary. ML/AI will continue to further evolve, just like everything else on the planet.
Hope you are not merely watching the evolution. How are you evolving yourself?
Let me know.
