    Hi Joe, thank you for the video. I'm new in GCP and I have now basically 3 questions, I hope you can help me to clarify (sorry if i have mistakes in my english):

    1. What kind of installation do you recommend: by Bitnami or Click-to-Deploy? or what advantages have in each one?
    2. Choosing 0.6 gb ram and ssd, what would be the maximum visitors limit every day and every month approximately?, if this traffic amount increase fastly and reach the maximum queries on database, GCP will put resources automatically for the site is not down?
    3. Why should I choose GCP instead AWS?

    Thank you very much in advance.

    Hi Joe, first of all, thank you very much for you excellent video tutorials. I've learned a lot about Google Cloud thanks to you.
    Now, I have a quick question:
    I've set up a new wordpress site following this tutorial, and then I've setup the domain following your tutorial on that subject. But, I've just realized that the VM has an "ephimeral" IP address… do I need to set it as a "static" IP address? I'm under the impression that an "ephimeral" IP address could change, and if so, wouldn't the change affect my DNS configuration?

    Great Tutorial Joe, there is one thing missing here , i'm still fighting to get it fixed.
    when you stop / start the VM instance, unfortunately Apache doesn't start correctly
    so i have to do it manually by kill the Apache Demon manually and restart it manually

    How would I go about connecting a new database to a Google Cloud Platform deployed WordPress site? I have a class project to work on in which I have to build a very simple online video game subscription website, but I don't know how to build a database for it and make tables for it for responsive design. The content of the site does not matter much. It just has to function correctly.

    If possible, I'd like to have your contact information so that maybe you can help me out a bit more.
    Thanks : )

    Hey Joe. The video was helpful. I got my free console account. I created a project. I tried to install sugarCRM with bitnami. I was concerned about the charge it says at the bottom-right corner of Estimated cost: 14.20$/month. Will my card be charged with that amount each moth when I install ?? I know that's the sugarcrm community edition and is free, and the console account I got it free for one year. So, why does it show me the estimated cost. Please help. I do not want to be charged. Nowhere in your video, you've talked about the estimated cost, because I tried wordpress as well, and I could also see the same estimated cost thing on the bottom-right of the wordpress launcher page.

    Can you please help me. I have installed WordPress from here: based on another tutorial I found, and because I have tried other methods that did not work. Even before installation it gives me the following error: It says localhost not found. http://localhost:81 not found after installation, but I saw by unclicking deploying Bitnami on the cloud, does not render that error. I would just like to find out why I keep running into errors that will not launch the wordpress application. Your insights will be much appreciated.

    Hi, I've run into a problem. I can't edit my wordpress site URL. I tried editing my wp-config from SFTP FileZilla access but that brought the whole site down and I had to restore the original file. The problem is the "Home" page of the website is directed to the external IP of the vm computer and for obvious security reasons, I don't wish the home page to point it to that IP.

    Any help you can extend on this front will be greatly appreciately.

    I have watched so many videos on your channel and learned so much from it. I have great respect and appreciation for the fact you've shared this knowledge and conveyed it in a fashion that laymen like me with no CCNA or webdev background are on their way to becoming webdevs in their personal right. God Bless!

    Hello, Thanks for the great tutorial.

    I'd like to know between installing WordPress on Google Cloud via Bitnami and Google Click to deploy which you recommend? Are there any advantage or disadvantage to either.

    Thank you.
