Hi there, I recently Hosted a Wordpress on GCP , successfully, by watching couple Youtube tutorial .
Setup : VM instances ____F1-micro
Deployment : openlitespeed
On Wordpress I used Astra Theme , free version . I have a form on the site to collect lead ( I provide marketing service on that wordpress site ) , using WPforms , then I setup Gmail API that allow interaction between The Form on Wordpress Site ….to my work email ( Gsuite email )
Note : my VM instance is on a regular Gmail account . And my contact email using WPforms and API is an Gsuite Email account <— 2 different email account
After an Hour or so , I can not access the site via URL , or External IP , or Admin URL on Deployment Manager page . Look like the site is down . So went back to GCP , in VM Instance , it advised to upgrade to G1-Small machine because it recently get high memory consumption ( ?!? I dont remember exactly the message , dont quote me on this ) .
In my non-technical little brain , I thought the wordpress site is a bit heavy , and the machine is not strong enough . It is logical to upgrade to G1-Small and then the site will Up again Lol ….Nope it didn’t
A bit of digging , I find that under Deployment Manager page where it show Wordpress admin URL , that same Deployment openlitespeed still show “ Instance machine Type : F1-Micro “ which is the old machine before the upgrade
PLease anyone can point me where is the problem ? It take me 2 days to customize that Wordpress site and I dont want to re-do everything all over again .
Looks like to me that GCP is not currently connect with Wordpress . Please slap me with your knowledges lol I will try to catch up
Thank you in advance .
