Lots of problems initially but my site is happy now.

It took a lot of work and patience to make this work. The bitnami website is absolutely full of documented tricks and tips so do a lot of reading before you start. New releases come out quite frequently but you need to start from scratch and 'migrate' which is a lot of work. You also lose all of the custom work you have done so you will need to keep a manual record of everything you do.

I am about 10 releases behind, but I just can't afford the downtime to migrate as my ecommerce site is my primary source of income. I am trying to set up a load balancer and the learning curve is steep to get this to work. I can wrap my head around migrating to RDS but I am having trouble with https. I installed my cert using certbot on EC2 which is great but now ALB wants to do all that. I think there is a conflict. Not sure where to go next.


Good job.

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

Please help me get version "WordPress Certified by Bitnami and Automattic" installed on EC2.

And sometimes, my web site can not visit, but I can SSH to server, if I reset my server. It back to normal.

Wordpress for Bitnami is solid for BLOG development

  • December 29, 2021
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best about the product?
It has most tools available, including SSL certificate, for beginners. It is also easy to find help on Google. It makes it easy to deploy a web site, just follow step by step and make a few adjustments to deploy a web site. It takes less than half an hour to deply a simple web site. The plugins are very helpful in setting up my website.
What do you dislike about the product?
It is not free, and it will not allow me to install a second site on the same port. I found help on Google, but found the help is already outdated so I have to search again for the most current commands on Bitnami. The plugins can be misleading, especially when AMP plugin. AMP is a powerful tool to validate my website content. However, it could also stop me from using older version of plugins or themes, especially for those with JS scripts. I have to deactivate AMP plugin to make my other plugins work.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
It has most tools I needed for deploying a site, as a beginner. It allows me to run Bitname packages instantly on Google Cloud, similar to that for AWS. However, it takes some learning trying to get it work on SSH. It allows me to install SSL certificate and turns the site from non-secure to secure in just minutes, now without restarting Apache (like I found on Youtube). This makes it simpler and easier, again for beginner.

IS IT FREE for Windows version as it say Linux/Unix free tier?
is it compulsory to upgrade to this new version of bitnami

this is just one site, and the minimum requirement is t3.micro!!!
why delete the option of Nano instance, that is not cheap for a single web host.

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

  • December 26, 2020
  • Review verified by AWS Marketplace

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"
