Install WordPress on Raspberry Pi 4 Running 64-Bit OS (beta) Using Docker-Compose

Objective

Run a WordPress website off my RPi 4.

Introduction

WordPress is a very flexible platform for running a blog or other website.  Having control of your own website offers more possibilities and control, maintains privacy, and can save some money.  The downside is that you are not going to be “up” 24/7 and won’t be able to handle high volume traffic. We will use Docker-Compose to build our stack.

Requisites

TBD
