Update 2022: We have a new video here ️ https://youtu.be/Hz58Zkke4VE This method is a smoother setup with some extra inclusions like email, NGINX caching, and some security tweaks. Definitely check that one out too!
In this video we will be showing you how to set up a WordPress site on Oracle Cloud which is free forever! This is great for those who want to try out WordPress and see how it works and for those who just want a free site. The free tier also allows you to use free SSL certificate and a custom domain. We will be using the Oracle Cloud dashboard to set up our server and we will be using aapanel to manage our server and install WordPress.
