Why use the Bitnami WordPress Stack?
Bitnami makes it easy to run WordPress in the cloud, locally or virtually. The Bitnami WordPress Stack is:
We track every release of WordPress and update our stack shortly after it's released.
If serious security issues are discovered, we provide new versions of WordPress as soon as possible, often within hours of the availability of a fix.
With Bitnami, you get the same software stack and configuration regardless of where you are deploying WordPress or other Bitnami Applications. This makes it easy to migrate between different platforms.
With the Bitnami WordPress Stack stack compiling, configuring and all of its dependencies are taken care of, so it works out-of-the-box.

Once I discovered how easy it was to install a contained Bitnami stack locally, I've been migrating all my WordPress sites under development as app modules. There's a noticeable improvement in performance compared to MAMP.
A few things I did to make it easier for me:
- Rename URL to remove /wordpress
- Copy "WordPress Module.app" to local directory and rename to wp.app
- Make aliases for quick install and server start
For a new project, I go to apps, bit-install instance_name. If I want to migrate a site to it, I use the Duplicator plugin to replace the contents of apps/instance_name/htdocs.
Thank you for providing all this and more. I'm inspired to try the Node.js stack as it seems like a perfect introduction for study. Docker support looks promising also.
