WordPress at Scale Gathering best practices from the community to help developers and site owners find success in scaling WordPress. The Problem WordPress can scale; this is proven.

Mission This repository exists as a resource for any developer or site owner to learn about the challenges of scalability, and how they can be overcome using bulletproof industry standard approaches. It is meant to provide developers with architectural guidance for infrastructure and services, and to educate site owners so they can better evaluate their options.
