wordpress deployments are complex and failure prone
Wordpress does not follow contemporary patterns for deployment. Plugins are configured and activated on the web interface, which means the configuration is only stored on database and hardly portable or idempotent.
Luckily, some guys made Bedrock,
WordPress boilerplate with modern development tools, easier configuration, and an improved folder structure
We should look into moving our deployments into that to get rid of some of the chaos and lack of overview of version and plugins, which always accumulates over time.
