In this guide we will create and deploy a scalable WordPress instance consisting of a MySQL database server, a GlusterFS distributed filesystem, Nginx web servers and an Nginx load balancer. By using user-data and droplet meta-data we will automate the deployment of our site.
In this tutorial, we will build on what we learned in the previous tutorials by transforming our single-application Ansible playbook into a playbook that supports deploying multiple PHP applications on one or multiple servers.
