How to Install WordPress on Google Cloud Hosting

To install WordPress on Google Cloud Hosting, you will need to create a new project in the Google Cloud Platform Console. Once you have created a project, you will need to enable the Compute Engine API. You can do this by going to the APIs & Services page in the Google Cloud Platform Console and searching for “Compute Engine”.

Once you have enabled the Compute Engine API, you can create a new Compute Engine instance. When creating a new instance, you will need to select the “WordPress” machine type.

You can also select the region and zone where you want your instance to be located. Once you have created your instance, you will need to connect to it using SSH. Once you are connected to your instance, you can install WordPress by running the following command:
