We’re maxing out some limits on our managed Wordpress hosting, with Siteground, and want to move our WP installation to Amazon Lightsail.
Here’s a couple of points about our current setup:
- We’re running Wordpress Managed Hosting with Siteground: pickleballist.com
- We’re running a Discourse community, hosted on a DigitalOcean Droplet: forums.pickleballist.com
- We’ve connected Wordpress and Discourse using the WP Discourse Plugin
- We’re using SSO and have established Wordpress as the Provider and Discourse as the client
We’d like to move our WP instance from Siteground to Lightsail and it doesn’t seem like that, alone, should be too difficult.
Our main concerns are about breaking our connection between Wordpress and Discourse, and the implications of moving our WP instance to AWS Lightsail.
What considerations should we be concerned about?
What would the process be to maintain our connection between Discourse and WP users, etc?
Any advice here would be greatly appreciated!
