Not working - Cannot find users

DO NOT USE THIS VERSION 5.0b. There is a fix in 5.0c but the Marketplace has not been updated!!!
I just installed this version (5.0.b) from the AWS marketplace. The application comes up, you can create sites, and groups. The main issue is you cannot add users into the groups. The system just does not find any user (even the default or admin account). Trying to find instructions on how to upgrade to the next version is not much better.

Build from scratch.

great but not for testing

It is great you get a working environment in a matter of minutes, however this is not available as a t1.micro instance and therefore not eligible for amazon free tier, to be able to evaluate and develop without extra charges.

Already bought two services from the bitnami. Everything is working fine. Established immediately and without problems. Recommended!

Bitnami powered Alfresco on AWS - Great but could be better

I am a big fan of AWS but I'm no command line guru. What I love about the Bitnami service is that you can be up and running on a number of popular and useful platforms very quickly without having to worry about configuring mysql, apache, php, etc. They're just all there in the right directories pre-configured to interoperate and support your chosen application package, which in this case is the excellent groupware platform Alfresco (better than SharePoint in my humble opinion).

My only problem with the Bitnami configuration is that they haven't solved outbound email. I've used Google to search for how to make this work and after about twenty different approaches I gave up. Which means that I can create other users but I can't invite them to the site. Which means I have a groupware site with a user population of 1 - about as much use as a chocolate teapot!

Please sort this out and you'll get 5 stars.
