Sorry to hear that. We updated the Bitnami WordPress solution to include PHP 7.4 in July, 2020 (you can take a look at the changelog.txt file of WordPress: and we sent new versions to the AWS Marketplace and Lightsail at that moment. Unfortunately, it took more time than expected for the Lightsail team to update the solution in the platform but it was finally updated recently. For future requests, we provide support from our engineers in our Community forum ( and they could help you install the latest version of the Bitnami WordPress installer in a Lightsail instance so you have always the latest version. Thanks!
