latest version does not have LetsEncrypt.... so no SSL

latest version does not have LetsEncrypt.... so no SSL as advertised in the name. Must be done manually and its a pain.


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.

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.


Not compatible for multiple sites deployment

I need to deploy another app on the same instance along with wordpress using SNI, like this: - wordpress; - another app.
To achieve this I needed to install the required "stream" nginx modules, which are not included in this image.
After a 3-day tornment failing and trying over and over for such a simple task, I finally gave up and killed this instance with tons of agony.
I was intended to save 1 hour using this image, ended up wasting 3 days.
In conclusion, do NOT use this image if you want to run anything else alongwith Wordpress on the same instance.


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.

Is pretty useless an AMI with Nginx ad SSL that not support auto configuration for the service. I have try it, but mabye I will kill this instance and start over again.

Broken SSH

Suddenly I couldn't access to my instance anymore.
After loosing hours, I decide to recover my wordpress site from the backup. So, I created a brand new instance based on this image... and guess what?? It's unreachable!!
Please fix the ssh.

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.
