Architecture of a CMS Website
The last chapter introduced the concept of a CMS-based website and how they are used across the Internet today. I discussed that you're going to be using the WordPress CMS in this hosting scenario and deploying it to the AWS platform. In this chapter, I'll talk about the structure and requirements for hosting your CMS. I'll take a look at the architecture and similarities of three major CMS applications. I will walk through, in more detail, the example web scenario and the assets that you will need to set up to be hosted in AWS. Finally, I'll talk about data export and migration options for moving an existing CMS website from a hosting provider to AWS.
