Automatically Remove Instance with all Installation

  • March 10, 2023
  • Review verified by AWS Marketplace

I successfully installed this AMI in the t2.micro instance but it didn't connect the instance through SSH and automatically remove my created instance along with "WordPress Multisite Certified by Bitnami and Automattic".

it simply doesn't work, I tried installing it 3 times but each time I try to go to the public IP address the address is not reachable


Basic Wordpress Functions Broken

  • August 24, 2018
  • Review verified by AWS Marketplace

I should have stopped using this image when, right out of the box, I couldn't even create users in Wordpress. I persisted though and was unable to upload a theme and also could not activate the WP Mail SMTP plugin.

I restarted with the non Multisite Bitnami AMI and this all worked just fine.

Dismal failure

  • May 26, 2018
  • Review verified by AWS Marketplace

I have set up maybe 100 Apache websites by hand, untold lines of PHP, etc.

I followed the directions and all I get is 404, regardless of my troubleshooting efforts.

No longer works

This used be a near-perfect AMI but has completely stopped working on AWS. Hopefully Bitnami can fix this but it's been broken for some time.

Don't waste your time

As reported by reviewers for over 2 months, this AMI is worthless. Follow their instructions and you'll end up not being able to login to your WP instance.


False product

Worst experience ever. No multisite. No networking configuration. Unsecured MySql installation. In any case this is an install-and-go image. Bitnami is the worst software images provider ever seen.

It has been impossible to set up this image.

Non-functional, could not login, cookies domain missconfiguration

  • June 24, 2017
  • Review verified by AWS Marketplace

After installation it sets the default site to http://***
and cookies are not enabled to accessible, so, wordpress disallows login.

Error message:
> ERROR: Cookies are blocked or not supported by your browser. You must enable cookies to use WordPress.

Default configuration redirects from to http://***

Edited wp-config, still no solution.

Non-multisite instance by Bitnami works ok.


no t2.micro support

  • August 24, 2014
  • Review verified by AWS Marketplace

It will not run on a t2.micro.

They have not included it as a supported platform.

Finding login information for this product is hard.

You also have to hunt for all the config and log files as they are not in standard linux places


Poor initial experience

  • May 07, 2014
  • Review verified by AWS Marketplace

Deployed the image and followed pages and links from the Bitnami's site and never could get logged into the Wordpress Admin Console ( /admin). Their instructions list a default user (that seemed valid), but the password for an AMI (non-CloudFront) instance failed. I'd love to rate this higher (I've installed Wordpress on CentOS before quite easily, but this was NOT the experience I would have expected for a pre-built image.
