What is the value?

I am not certain I see the value of this AMI. I installed it hoping that it would enable all my PHP scripts. As mentioned in previous reviews, you will need to spend considerable time reconfiguring the virtual hosts. It is not straightforward. After hours and hours it still did not enable my PHP scripting.

There are good reviews explaining how to set up LAMP step-by-step. These are also fraught with some difficulty, but the complex virtual hosting is bypassed.

And there is no way of contacting "technical support." So you are on your own.

As with all technical services, the documentation is awful.

Bitnami "Cloud Hosting Console" ?
Where is it? We couldn't find this page so we uninstalled Bitnami LAMP and installed an standard AWS LAMP instead.

Not a vanilla LAMP stack

I'm sure that the Bitnami stack is good when used for it's intended purpose as a rapid app deployment mechanism.

However, I was looking for a vanilla LAMP stack that could get up and running quickly, and this isn't it. It changes several Linux conventions which is annoying, for example:
- you can't use standard "service XXX restart" commands but must use the /opt/bitnami scripts instead.
- .htaccess files don't work out of the box
