Introduction: Objectives of the Hands-On Chapters in This Course

Get an overview of the components we will use during the hands-on portions of this course.

You have already started a WordPress instance through the CLI in chapter four, but this was a very barebones setup without the possibility to access the instance. Now that you have seen how to use the different EC2 options, let’s apply this knowledge to create your WordPress installation.

Goal of the hands-on portions

Before we do that, let’s review what the end goal of this course is and where you are at right now. For each hands-on chapter in this course, you will update the state of your WordPress deployment to get closer to the end goal.

This is what your WordPress deployment will look like at the end of this course. In the image below, you can see the components you have already learned about (marked with red rectangles).
