In Azure portal click ”on marketplace”, there you can find a huge amount of apps and services. One of them is WordPress, so let’s search for that.
There are a few WordPress options, click the one that is just called “WordPress” to read more about it and then click ”Create”.
Pick a name for your blog, this needs to be unique since it’s a part of the URL.
I’m using ”Mercery” here, since it is free and I have no use for anything larger at the moment.
You can also change the location to one that is closer to you. I’m using West Europe.
Don’t forget to read the legal terms.
Click ”create” and azure will set things up.
This is what it looks like when it’s done. Click on the URL to your blog to start WordPress.
You need to choose language, pick a username and password and such, and then you just click ”install WordPress”.
After a few minutes you will have to sign in to WordPress with the credentials you just created.
And that is it! This is the WordPress dashboard where you can find themes, templates, settings and stuff. You can tweak your blog to fit your personality.
This is what it looks like if you do no tweaking at all.
That’s all there is to it, now go create a blog or two!
