Since I was awarded OneNote MVP, and got credited with a subscription to Azure, I was eager to make use of it, to discover it’s power.
Also, I was willing to upgrade my blog, to offer a better experience to my visitors, and ease the switch between articles in English and article in French.
Combining both resulted in hosting my former WordPress.com in Azure, with a custom domain name, which I proudly introduce to you today !
Since I am neither an IT guy, nor a webmaster, I was a bit overwelmed at first. But setting a WordPress Web App in Azure was the easy part, really.
Azure handles everything smoothly, and creates automatically a database with the relevant directories and their files, even if you have no knowledge at all.
Actually, the trickiest part was to set the bilingual environnement (thanks to Lingotek/Polylang plugin), and make the association between past post in English with past post in French without messing around.
But the technical hurdle being overcome, it’s time to enjoy !
Thanks for reading, and feel free to share your own experience.
