Super useful out of the box

If you're looking to run WordPress on EC2 quickly, this is a great option. It's already fully configured and optimized so the amount of work on the actual server is minimal.


Cannot serve home page after instance spun up

spun up an instance in the default VPC and allocated an EIP through the console. After waiting for 10 mins, the instance still cannot serve an home page. instance size was t2.large in ca-central-1.

A disappointing product and a waste of time.


just not working :(

Years ago this software was one of the best alternatives that existed on AWS. Now it has become very obsolete and old, the lack of support and updates are making it totally unusable. In fact, the databases continue to use magnetic disks, they still use the classic loadbalancer and not the last one, it is not compatible with AMD instances or modern database instances, full instability when updating linux, the Cloudfront does not work ... .and the list is very long.
It is a shame to see this software die, it is a totally unnecessary waste of money.
I hope that one day it will be the software it was before.

A great product, with great service to back it up

I've been using the WordPress powered by AMIMOTO for over five years, and I'm impressed by how well this stack is put together and how helpful the team was when I had a service request. I first signed up for this AMI in early 2014, and have been successfully hosting over 100 Wordpress websites on it since then. We are a marketing services company that does not know as much about server development, but since the stack is reliable and easy to use we have been able to offer website hosting services to our clients without the fear of having any issues.

Recently we did have an issue though (the first issue in 5 years). Since the AMI we were using was first built in 2014 the PHP version went out of date this year when we upgraded most of our websites to Wordpress 5. When I tried to run the update script it wouldn't work! So I messaged the support team from AMIMOTO, and Daniel immediately responded and helped me step by step to upgrade our server from the previous AMIMOTO version to the new one.

Overall the server runs great, and in the rare case I need to speak with someone from AMIMOTO they were very responsive and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this AMI.

I used this AMI in conjunction with the Amimoto CLI to run multiple staging sites out of one EC2 instance. Everything worked great, and was simple to use.

We also have a few client sites running on the AMI (on separate EC2 instances). These clients already had a knowledge of AWS, but loved how simple it was to create a well-built, easy to manage, super fast environment for WordPress.

Amimoto HVM AMI one of the best server configuration for Wordpress and install in few clicks. The customer support is excellent. Special thanks to Daniel. He was very responsible and easy to chat. Highly recommended.

No email function, user management not functional

Gave it a test, needed to reset password during the first time login. This install of WordPress seems to not include email: ERROR The email could not be sent.
Possible reason: your host may have disabled the mail() function..

Can't login as a result. Why not include some minimal SMTP email capability, without which WordPress base functions do not run?

It is the best server configuration for Wordpress blogs that I know.

Esta é a melhor configuração para blogs Wordpress que eu conheço.
