Wasted an entire day

I wasted an entire day trying to get this to work. Countless issues. Tired and annoyed. I will now proceed to install Wordpress manually.


This is for a SINGLE WordPress instance ONLY - you cannot install a second site

Along with the many other reviews that give this a 1 or 2 stars because you cannot upgrade your PHP version, another major downfall is the inability to install multiple WordPress sites (*NOT* Multisite.)

bitnami has 'discontinued' the ability to install more than one WordPress instance on THEIR stack.

From searching their support site, and finding: "Install multiple WordPress modules" -
-- 404 - "The Page You Were Looking For Doesn't Exist. You may have mistyped the address or the page may have moved."

From their support from May 2019:
"Thanks for using Bitnami. I think it is easier (and safer too) if you install a fresh new Bitnami WordPress module on your current Bitnami installation as mentioned in this guide -"
-- note that the page now redirects to "Learn About Bitnami PHP Application Modules Deprecation"


PHP Version Update

I am using Wordpress lightsail instance but here phpversion 7.3.18 is being used when will you upgrade to php 7.4 ?


It's working like they say, but you can't update your PHP version.

The only way to update your PHP version is by export your site, launch new instance, restore backup...

It was fun when we had 2 wordpress sites, but now we have above 10 wordpress sites on Bitnami and it's time consuming, hopefully Bitnami will provide a way to update PHP.

Wordpress shows in health check the PHP version and say it's outdated, customers ask us to update PHP more often...


No support for t2 micro

They don't support t2 micro instance which comes under free tier. I went with a different wordpress AMI available on AWS marketplace.

As all people said, zero control

No control, no clear and updated documentation, painful to configure, need to check a lot of things... Better Docker + Wordpress, Plesk + multiple Wordpress sites or even LAMP with Wordpress

Terrible Not user Friendly at all

Terrible Not user Friendly at all, can not setup anything of make any use of this at all... Pointless to even download it


Easier to do it yourself than configure this

Wanting to use this as a quick way to spin up a varnish cached instance but this is defiantly not the solution.

Between outdated, incorrect or just non-existent documentation it's faster to just do it manually. Then you get the added benefit of knowing just what is going on with your stack.


Zero control of anything

I already have an EC2 instance I wanted to install this on but the setup process restricts installation to a new instance and no control over which directory or even type of server such as Ubuntu. This software is only for newbies with close to zero knowledge of the server side. You'll get what they give you.
