My university friend needed help on deploying to GCP, however, it made me such all over the internet until I found a solution. Have decided to share it so it can be of help to some else out there. This is a brief one but will update it with screenshots when I settle down.
In case you have a website or web app developed using HTML template, PHP, and MSQL database, you can freely host it on google cloud with the same setup as your local computer in a few minutes. Let's break down the steps:
- Deploy a LAMP Stack VM from the marketplace using Deployment Manager
- Navigate into the
/var/www/htmlfolder, delete the default index.html file 3. Using SSH connection, connect your VM to your local machine 4. Copy all files in Xampp into VM
- Access phpmyadmin of the VM by adding
/phpmyadminafter its External IP 6. Export local database content to VM database
