How To Deploy a PHP Application with Kubernetes

In this tutorial, we’ll use Kubernetes, an open source container orchestration system, to deploy a PHP application. To run a PHP application, Nginx acts as a proxy to PHP-FPM—Kubernetes will help manage both services in seperate containers, allow the containers to be reusable and swappable so we won’t have to rebuild the container image every time there’s a new version of Nginx or PHP. Choose your operating system to get started.
