Straight forward does what it says

The only reason for not giving this the full 5 stars is that it is unnecessarily difficult to find user names and passwords the first time. This is one of those things that when you know the answer, it's obvious. The answer is out there but why not have it available at the command prompt?

The WordPress admin user name is 'user' not 'admin'. The password is on created by the system at first boot and to find it you must know to review the EC2 launch log which is available from an option in the EC2 control panel. See, not difficult when you know. I like the Bitnami stacks and I've done this kind of thing before but forgotten. Well, I've not had find out the default WordPress admin username.

In an improvement over earlier Bitnami LAMP stacks I've used, this one displays the location of the A, M and P software Bitnami has added to the L when the administrator signs on to the machine. That is nice.

It would be even better if it displayed the user names of the relevant services, in this case to include that of the WordPress admin. Recognizing that it's probably not a great idea to display the generated password every time, displaying a note of how to find the password at the same time would be helpful. This would save everyone from having to use search engines to find out.

Easy simple wordpress install. It just works

Works out of the box as required. Bitnami have done a good job for the last few years. It saves me lots of install and config time. If all you need is wordpress - just use this. Plug and play.

Very easy to setup, had a working installation in under 5 minutes! Anyone can create a Wordpress site quickly and easily with this product.


Strange Directory Structure

Difficult to use in practice. Directory structure is bizarre with symlinking everywhere. I would recommend putting this together from scratch. Will take 1-2 hours and you'll know where everything is vs. this approach.

Too Complicated to Get Up and Running

  • September 09, 2014

People migrating to AWS from other hosting platforms are likely used to one-click installs of Wordpress from cPanel and other hosting management solutions. Just getting things up and running with an instance, security groups, elastic IP, and Route53 DNS "stuff" is a steep learning curve. Discovering that the Wordpress installation is not in the root directory of the domain and that one has to jump through a lot of hoops in order to get the thing working just adds to the frustration.

I ended up un-installing the instance and went with the YAPIXX instance from Oblaksoft because it is already connected to Amazon's S3 storage for hosting media files with the WP2Cloud plugin and the only extra step in addition to a typical one-click Wordpress install was adding three lines of authorization to actually get the EC2 server to talk with the S3 storage platform. That and firing up the typical security group, elastic ip, and tweaking a file to allow SFTP access to the server files for editing.

Works as advertised. Tried a couple of others and didn't work well with the template I was implementing. Was able to get this running in a few minutes.

With a micro tier definitely use it with a SSD. I tried it with a magnetic drive and it's really slow.
