Anyone have any pointers on the right way to deploy bitnami/wordpress on a k0s cluster
K0s deploys a vanilla kubernetes so it’s the same as with any other kubernetes distribution.
Checking the bitnami documentation, I see there is a guide for minikube so it’s pretty much the same with these few differences:
The first 3 steps are installing minikube, so skip them.
Steps 4 and 5 are installing helm, deploying bitnami and redis, you should be able to run this as is. Or if you want to use a GUI you can use you can do it with Lens. The steps are basically the same except you don’t need to install helm.
Step 6 uses the kubernetes dashboard which we don’t have, you can obtain the same information using Lens or if you don’t want a GUI, use the CLI.
Step 7 is uninstalling, you can do it with helm CLI or lens, depending on what you did on steps 4 and 5.
Many thanks for the response its much appreciated.
I do have Helm installed and running on my cluster and did try to install WordPress using:
helm install bitnami/wordpress --generate-name
The install is pending and if I look at the pvc’s I see they are pending:
> kubectl get pvc > NAME STATUS VOLUME CAPACITY ACCESS MODES STORAGECLASS AGE > data-wordpress-1686763442-mariadb-0 Pending 16h > wordpress-1686763442 Pending 16h
Uninstalling that helm release and running:
helm show values bitnami/wordpress|less
I realized that the issue was that Helm did not know what storage class to use for the PVC so after running:
helm install bitnami/wordpress --generate-name --set serviceType=NodePort --set global.storageClass=openebs-hostpath
The chart did deploy and I was able to access the logs for the WordPress pod showing the app was running. The only item still pending:
> kubectl get all -A|grep -i pend > default service/wordpress-1686823545 LoadBalancer 10.110.100.38 <pending> 80:31856/TCP,443:31155/TCP 107s
WordPress service. I was able to access the WordPress app using port forward:
kubectl port-forward deployment.apps/wordpress-1686823545 :8080
And was able to login to WordPress and update the plugins.
I need to try and figure out why the service is still pending. If anyone has any pointers on how to do this I would appreciate some pointers
Is there a way to get: WSL-2 system dependencies · Issue #2755 · k0sproject/k0s (github.com) reopened? I’m having problems getting loadbalancers to come out of pending state on wsl-2 and “k0s sysinfo” is reporting erroneous info on WSL-2. I updated this issue with the problems I’m seeing with load balancers on WSL-2
