@oreillyc Hi, can you provide some details as to what you’re trying to edit here? Well, I must go and I look forward to your feedback here.

Think different and code well,


Wordpress has a wp-config.php

Ordinarily it’s edited by command line, or FTP.

But neither seem to exist on the Kubernates Wordpress instance. The wp-config.php file is not editable via wordpress plugins either due to lack of permissions.

How can it be edited?
I need to change wordpress settings held in the wp-config.php

Depending on how wordpress is deployed this sounds like a good option for a configmap.

That should be editable with kubectl edit configmap <configmap>
