Make it in t4g plan please

It would be better for cost saving if this package can be run on t4g plan.
t4g is faster and cheaper with best performance too.


Working well

I use this image to set up a single site landing page app. It is running well. After i found the passwords for the login it was easy to maintain the site. It works well with macro instance too.


Very good

This is the same app as you get with Wordpress on Lightsail. Easy to set up SSL and other important features, just follow the instructions at Bitnami.


One of the best WP AMIs in the marketplace

Works every single time - could do with ability to upgrade PHP versions, but not too difficult to migrate to new instances.

Can setup a full functional server in less than 10 minutes with this.

WordPress, NGINX, SSL SERVER CERTS what more do you need?

This is perfect and easy to work with and plenty of docs on bitnami


Amazing! A semi-novice and now I have a WordPress site and a free SSL

This is really cool and for $0.00 it's pretty exciting!
About all I can remember from a UNIX course 30 yrs ago is ls and vi...
I can't believe that in a day I've managed to create an AWS account, I've created a linux host running WordPress, registered a DNS zone, and I even have an SSL! And so far I've only paid for registering a DNS zone.

Oh, and I've used SSH in PuTTY for the first time.
It was fairly easy, just had to follow the instructions they give here in the marketplace. Actually, I find the hardest part is trying to use the cost calculator for what my fee will be 12 months from now..

Huge thank you to AWS, Bitnami and the Let's Encrypt Authority X3, and WordPress... now I just need to figure out how to renew this free SSL when that day happens.. and setup my Amateur Radio demo site.. (did I mention the Chrome browser now shows a little padlock instead of a warning! Awesome!)

I originally tried the multisite Wordpress but to setup up SSL with that is a chore since I didn't want to pay for the AWS load balancer that is required for the AWS free SSL. Evidently it can be done but I messed up something and just deleted that VM and created a new instance using this one.

Works as advertised, don't listen to untrainted reviewers

Everything works out of the box if you take the time to read the documentation provided by Bitnami. Yes, it's difficult to make sure all of your security settings are correct for your specific environment to connect to this instance IF IT'S THE FIRST TIME YOU ARE USING SSH IN YOUR LIFE. Anyone with even the smallest amount of experience will have no problem.

I find it amazing that people who don't know what they are doing decide to lash out at a company that is giving them a jumpstart on configuring a set of free tools. If you don't like it, go spin up a bare unbuntu instance and do it yourself.

Thanks for doing the legwork, Bitnami.

Love this build!

This is a VERY fast and stable build for WordPress. I dropped my page load time from about 3 seconds on shared hosting to a stable 1.0 second, and CPU utilization is only about 1% on a t3a-micro instance for a moderately trafficked site (about 3000 visits/mth. The SSL installation works like a charm and takes 5 minutes (although note the domain has to be resolved first). Furthermore it's possible via some mods to host multiple domains. I liked it so much I wrote long review and installation checklist, see Great work, Bitnami!


It's a true time saver!

Thanks so much for making this quick setup it saved us a lot of time creating such a stack for our website! I wonder how to upgrade the stack if a new NGINX version or update to Let's Encrypt comes out? Do we need to just do a normal Linux update via ssh ? or do we have to use a different approach for upgrading this stack provided by Bitnami?
