# WordPress
This is a WordPress repository configured to run on the [Kubernetes platform](https://kubernetes.io). It's a fork of Pantheon's WordPress fork modified to remove the Pantheon-specific source code. Use it as a base for a hardened WordPress installation created via Ansible using the [wordpress-helm](https://code.habd.as/mirrors/wordpress-helm) Helm Chart from OAS.

Pantheon is a website platform optimized and configured to run high performance sites and then ransom those sites back to their customers when traffic rises due to popularity. This fork is intended to empower Pantheon customers stuck with a ransom note from Pantheon to self-host their sites on Kubernetes while saving money instead.

As you can see you need to give up some things in order to migrate to Kubernetes. But because K8s is so flexible these items may be added back later on an as-needed basis with a little elbow grease.
As you can see you need to give up some things in order to migrate to Kubernetes. What you lose you gain back in the form of control. Items may be added to or removed from the stack as needed.
