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

    All in One Migration Screwed up Existing Site

    by Tim Lyman on

    This is an addendum to my previous review. I forgot to mention that the All in One migration tool recommended for site migration screwed up my existing site, causing me to have to upload the site files from a backup. Apparently the tool is shite for larger sites.

    Utter Crap

    by Tim Lyman on

    If your goal is to migrate an existing WordPress site, forget it. You can migrate a site, but won't be able to do updates once you've moved it. I even modified my config.php to include all the extra code in the bitnami config.php. Still no go. Been working with WP for years, and I've wasted two days trying to figure this garbage out.

    Bitnami disables Website Address URL

    by Norman Edwards on

    The wordpress image used in the lightsail install disables the Wordpress Address (URL) settings in the admin section. You cannot change the WordPress Address (URL) to https inside of Wordpress. If I do it from the Linux shell it will lock me out of Wordpress.. Does Bitnami make a secured version of Wordpress? Please Help,

    Bitnami - the most unuseful soft i ever used

    by Sergiu Zaharie on

    Bitnami adds a lot of unuseful files, a lot of passwords, and changes a lot in the way WordPress works. If you don't want to waste your time later, when you'll have to move or edit the website, don't use BitNami ever. I regret doing so
