The worst bitnami image !

  • By Doron Neumann

I have very good experience with bitnami but this image sucks.
After installing, and trying to access the Magento admin, the site goes into an endless redirect loop.
Googling it shows that this happens allot but couldn't find the solution.
(Something to do with HTTP->HTTPS redirection).
Bottom line - total waste of time.

Wrong image - pass this up

Looks like someone messed up in a big way. This is Moodle, not Magento. I installed it, went to the URL for my EC2, and Moodle comes up.

Works Fine

Perfect install, no problems. Just bear in mind Magento 2.0 Connect is still not developed so you'll struggle to install any extensions the easy way like 1.9. I suggest holding back on this release for another 12 months.

Solid install of magento with apache on Ubuntu; tiny permission problem/maybe email problem?

The install behaved as described immediately upon installation. The instructions for removing the bitnami corner banner were clear and worked fine. I used this as an upgrade from a previous installation at an outdated level of magento, so I experienced some glitches that were due to the version difference, no skin off Bitnami. The only small point that seemed to be a characteristic of this Bitnami installation is that the apache httpd is running under user "daemon" but a number of the configuration directories that Magento needs to save files in were owned by user "bitnami" so I was getting errors from Magento not being able to save configuration changes until I ran chown on the appropriate directories in ~bitnami/apps/magento/htdocs to change the owner to daemon. And right now I am in the midst of trying to configure email so the Magento install can email receipts to customers, but I haven't quite figured that out yet. Other than that, everything has been very solid with this install. I am also going to want to figure out how to run CXS or some other virus/intrusion watchguard program(s) on the running images, maybe something like LFD to block repeated failed logins. Bitnami might want to consider making some of those things standard on images like this that are used for fairly high-security end uses. But overall: Thanks, Bitnami, for your nice work.

Follow-up (Oct 17): I did eventually get Magento emailing to customers to work, but it was quite a bear, involving changes to the code in app/code/core/Mage/Core/Model/Email/Template.php and app/code/core/Mage/Core/Model/Email/Queue.php to use Zend_Mail_Transport_Smtp in place of Zend_Mail_Transport_Sendmail. I am not sure if this difficulty was an issue with Bitnami's configuration of this Magento install, or my not understanding how I was supposed to set up email, or there being another Magento module I should have installed in order to set up outgoing email of SMTP. But I did eventually get it working by modifying those two files.

Another important tip: Don't forget to put your SSL certificates on the new instance; this image uses self-signed certificates out of the box, which are surely not appropriate for e-commerce.

Not sure yet, but I think i'm happy

The truth is I just needed tuned environment for my own Magento store with scalable and distributed resources. I have never worked with cloud systems before and this is my first experience. I still did not fully realize what is this and what are all the abilities of the system but I guess this is exactly what I need and for sure it is much more.
I wish Amazon provided something like step-by-step instructions for newbies like me. And it would be great to furnish the main control panel with red button "reset" to bring everything to initial settings as it was right after signup (unless all others but me are cloud-specialists), because after a few attempts to intuitively set everything up I needed to ask my friend to help me (the guy who suggested me AWS - fortunately he is quite familiar with it)
