The Bitnami WordPress Stack provides a one-click install solution for WordPress. Download installers and virtual machines, or run your own WordPress server in the cloud.

WordPress is one of the world’s most popular web publishing platforms for building blogs and websites. It can be customized via a wide selection of themes, extensions and plug-ins.

More on WordPress

WordPress rose to popularity quickly because of it’s up-to-date development framework, extensive feature set, flexibility, rapid and multilingual publishing ability, multi-author support, and thriving community. Thousands of free and commercial themes and plugins are available to extend and personalize WordPress for just about every situation.

Launch on more than a single VM using Wordpress Multi-Tier

Bitnami offers a Multi-tier Wordpress configuration that puts the application and database on multiple virtual machines. This provides improved capacity over a single VM and separates the database contents from the machine where the application code is running.

On Microsoft Azure, you can launch this configuration into your account using the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.

On AWS, the application uses AWS Relational Database Service as the database for the application, and you can launch this configuration with Amazon RDS with MariaDB or with Amazon Aurora using the AWS Marketplace.

On Google Cloud Platform, you can launch this configuration into your account using the Google Cloud Launcher.

Key features of WordPress include

  • Rich text and HTML editing
  • User roles and permissions
  • Hundreds of themes, many optimized for mobile users
  • Thousands of add-ons for ecommerce, SEO, email, spam filtering, analytics and more
  • Multi-user and multi-blogging capabilities
  • Multilingual support
  • SEO optimized
  • Plugin architecture and template engine

    Avoid this headache

    by Organic Insights on

    After days of messing with EC2 service I decided to try Bitnami's deployment even though I saw many posters mentioning permission errors. Installed it one machine and haven't had any issues - yet. Truth be told I'm sure I'll run into plenty as the site is built out further.

    Now, the one that earned Bitnami a 1-star install. After scouring numerous threads and forums I still have yet to figure out why Bitnami won't allow me to SSH into the back end JUST to change permissions so I can adjust the cache to upload a WP theme. Should be simple, right? Not with this product. After days of searching, consulting with friends and nearing a deadline to launch a project near to my heart, I'm still stuck trying to figure out a "1-click install" solution. Yea, whatever. Save your time and do a clean install or pay someone to go through the headache.

    This is an old review but, just in case someone else is finding the same issue, accessing through ssh is documented at https://docs.bitnami.com/general/faq/#connect_ssh. I'd also like to mention that since this review was written we have been doing huge improvements to our documentation. This includes migrating to a new, easier to browse, documentation system: https://docs.bitnami.com. In any case, for any questions or problems with your deployment, please use our community site (https://community.bitnami.com) instead. Our team is monitoring it and will be glad to help you there. Thanks!

    by Mohan Sreekant Iyer on

    I have installed LAMP stack and WordPress manually on Arch Linux. I still remember the pain I endured and the hour spent.

    Just compare these two articles I wrote and you will see how it adds years to a developer's life:
