Event Espresso is the best WordPress event online registration and ticketing manager plugin–and the best supported with full-time support. Based on my experiences. In this section, I’ll explain how to enhanced Event Espresso with your Azure VM

  1. Press , type WordPress
  2. Choose “wordpress + mysql” with Docker as Publisher

  3. Click “Create”

  4. Fill the required fields as you want

  5. For “Location”, I’m peffer to “Southeast Asia”

  6. Why I choose “Southeast Asia”? I have tried “West US” and at that time there’s no DS VM type

    VM Type with DS-series has premium storage and run faster than D-series. For more detail check here

  7. Now assume you have install your wordpress, now it’s time to configure your VM, connect SSH to your VM
  8. Once you login to your VM using putty, type

    sudo su

  9. And type

    docker ps

  10. And will show something like this


    xxxxxxxxxxxxx wordpress “/entrypoint.sh apach” 2 days ago Up 39 hours>80/tcp compose_wordpress_1

    xxxxxxxxxxxxx mysql “/entrypoint.sh mysql” 2 days ago Up 39 hours>3306/tcp compose_mysql_1

  11. Next, remember the name of wordpress image, in my case is “compose_wordpress_1”

    docker inspect -f “{{.State.Pid}}” compose_wordpress_1

  12. It will show the PID, then type (in my case, 1016 is my wordpress pid)

    sudo nsenter –target 1016 –mount –uts –ipc –net –pid

  13. Once it open new shell, install new package

    apt-get install php5-gd php5-curl libapache2-mod-php5

    service apache2 reload

  14. Type “exit” to exit from docker container.

The php5-gd dan libapache2-mod-php5 package will help you when you download Receipt / Order confirmation in PDF. Php5-curl will help you when you install Braintree add-on
