Good. Useful does what it says. Had a job figuring out how to connect

The thing worked fine and produced a version of Wordpress. It took me hours to figure the username and password for Wordpress are set up with are 'user' and 'bitnami' and when you try to connect to the instance you have to connect as 'bitnami' rather than ec2-user. Also when I tried converting to multisite I got some mystery error. Didn't bother spending ages trying to figure that one out


Very Good

Easy to install, 10 minutes is up!
Atention to password and usernames, always bitnami.
Is a good choice when you need to be fast.

The difficulty lies in the details...

As others mentioned, the installation was super easy, but setting up a domain may be difficult for new aws users.

Advice for newcomers: the user to SSH is "bitnami", not "ubuntu" and the default password for MySQL is "bitnami".

I documented my experience here:


Awesome for designers.

Being that I mainly work as a designer and care little for server code and such, this install makes life much easier deploying into the cloud. It is incredibly easy to use providing you have a background with Wordpress. Still unsure if I need a micro or small instance but it runs fast from both of my tests. Keep up the good work guys. I love FREE software to work from.

Since wordpress gets installed in it's completely useless and looks very unprofessional. I'm installing wordpress manually instead of wasting time on this.

Smart install scripts, comprehensive documentation => a great job !

Thanks very much Bitnami

Needs documentation

I used this image because i wanted to quickly setup an extra blog and I had to little time to set it up myself.
Getting this image to work correctly turned out to be more hassle than expected, mainly because usernames, passwords and file-locations are little documented and take a lot of guesswork. Next to this my little handson experience in Linux did not help. I think one could setup an image with some setup scripts to prevent having to dive into all the separate config files.

Works well, but configuration is difficult.

I think it might be easier if you just install from the scratch. SSH into the box and configuring the root URL took a while, as the documentation is scattered around.

I almost don't know the difference between html and css, but I was able to put my wordpress website online without hicups with AWS and Bitnami. Great stuff!

not bad

works well, but I had to hunt around on bitnami's help pages a bit for default ssh user and password and mysql root password. Can you publish those on this page along with the apache config directory?
