Hosting WordPress on Amazon Lightsail is a cost-effective way to adopt the cloud and benefit from the security and scale of AWS.
Seahorse, a trusted AWS Partner, provides a simple seamless solution for migrating a WordPress site from an existing hosting provider (or localhost) to Amazon Lightsail. In addition, Seahorse provides a Management Console within WordPress to give users the ability to manage their Lightsail instance from their WP Dashboard.
In this tutorial, we’ll guide you through the process of upgrading the underlying hardware and PHP version of your WordPress site by cloning to the Amazon Lightsail service within your AWS account.
Please note: the latest version of PHP is not always compatible with all themes/plugins. We recommend users always run the trial process first to establish if there are incompatibility issues. Click Here to navigate to the dedicated trial tutorial.
