Nginx Follow nginx.org | Open Source

Bitnami Nginx Stack provides a complete, fully-integrated and ready to run PHP, MySQL and Nginx development environment. In addition, it bundles phpMyAdmin, SQLite, ImageMagick, FastCGI, Memcache, GD, CURL, PEAR, PECL and other components. Also known as LEMP for Linux, WEMP for Windows and MEMP for OS X.

Download installers and virtual machines, or run your own Nginx server in the cloud.

Bitnami Virtual Machines contain a minimal Linux operating system with Nginx installed and configured. This enables you to run the application without actually installing it on your computer. It's completely isolated from other software installed on your machine and makes an ideal sandbox for your project.

Using the Bitnami Virtual Machine image requires hypervisor software such as VMware Player or VirtualBox. Both of these hypervisors are available free of charge. After installing your preferred hypervisor, download and extract the Bitnami Virtual Machine by following the instructions in our getting started guide for VMware or VirtualBox.


Why use the Bitnami Nginx Stack?

Bitnami makes it easy to run Nginx in the cloud, locally or virtually. The Bitnami Nginx Stack is:

  • Up-to-date

    We track every release of Nginx and update our stack shortly after it's released.

  • Secure

    If serious security issues are discovered, we provide new versions of Nginx as soon as possible, often within hours of the availability of a fix.

  • Consistent

    With Bitnami, you get the same software stack and configuration regardless of where you are deploying Nginx or other Bitnami Applications. This makes it easy to migrate between different platforms.

With the Bitnami Nginx Stack compiling, configuring and all of its dependencies are taken care of, so it works out-of-the-box.

  1. Bitnami Nginx 5

    Nginx is far more powerful and complete than WAMP

    by showmemn showmemn on

    I would agree that WEMP modules would be a fantastic addition to the ease of use for WEMP, but I realize that an administrator has work to do to keep any platform going, so I wish to thank you all for your hard work in putting together this for all of us to share.

    Nginx rocks

    by bendict nzioka on

    I choose nginx over apache, not that apache is not good enough but its just that nginx does it for me. I would however like to urge the bitnami team to upgrade it's php version to php 7 as it's equally important, just like the LAMP stack, the documentation too needs some updating as it's mixed up with so many apache functions

    It's good with optimal settings

    by Gangsar Swa Purba on

    I spent around 2x24 to find fine-tune about this optimal setting for my vps.

    But, it's worth it. I used apache before migrate to this.

    Totally recommended!

    by Felipe Kraus on

    After using bitnami nginx stack I have to say it is amazing.

    I totally recommend it.

    The only thing missed is the old php version and the difficulty to update components isolated.
