Hello World! Setup WordPress Blog in Openshift Platform

WordPress Blog in Openshift

Hello, World! I setup my personal WordPress Blog in Openshift Platform like randytan.me using some application stack. This took me more than 1.5 hours to complete (excluding sign up and verifying my email addresses for each vendor)

Actually, what is Blog?

Blog pronounce as bläɡ/ is a media, regularly updated with contents (text, images, videos) that are written in a formal/informal style to give information to the user. In short forms, the blog is a simple media to show up your ideas about something.

What is the purpose of Blog?

The purpose of the blog is to show up an idea by writing it out in a digital format. Example if you’re like cooking, you can showcase your recipes and dishes in your blog completely with the tutorial. Nice right?

OK, let’s stop the theory for now. 😀

It’s not-so-easy step to create a blog from scratch without some basic technology background. But don’t worry you can create your own blog in ready to service site if you want. But, if you a people who like a challenge, you can try to build your own blog using the same technology as mine.

Technology Behind my Blog

  1. WordPress as my main blogging platform – easy customize, fits my personal needs. You may check it out at WordPress blogging platform
  2. Domain – Buy for a cheap one in Namecheap. I personally use their service because their support is good and the domain price is relatively low, in addition, you get free who.is guard to your domain. Wordpress Blog in Openshift by Namecheap.com
  3. OpenShift – main hosting company, you able to have a good hosting (based on RedHat – more info here) with uptime for 99% (personal calculation) and also the basic package is FREE.
  4. Zoho Mail – my personal main email company, you able to create FREE (yes completely) free custom email addresses to make you more professional (e.g. [email protected]).
