Create a virtual machine for a Bitnami system

To install a system with any of the Bitnami applications, you must install a new virtual machine, please take a loot at section Creating a virtual machine and follow the procedure.

IMPORTANT: Your virtual machine must have at least 5GB of disk space and a Public or NAT IPV4 Address.

Example: Installing Wordpress with Bitnami

  • Once you have created the virtual machine, the "Install Operating System" window appears
  • Choosing the option BITNAMI->Wordpress XXX.

It is normal to see some screens of running commands.

  • At the end of the process use the "CHANGE ROOT PASSWORD" tool.
  • Then select the option Quit (Use the TAB Key).

Installing Wordpress

When the base operating system is installed, the system will download the application installer from the web site.
Please be patient, the post-installation wizard will start after several seconds.
  • Choose the language.

  • Click on Next.

  •     Choose the components to install. Click on Next.

  • Select the folder where you installed Wordpress. Click on Next.

  • At the end of the installation process, click on Finish to restart the system.

Wordpress as website

Wordpress installation with Bitnami is complete, the system installs everything you need to run the website, that includes the Apache web server running on port 80. However, the service is not yet accessible through a browser, it is necessary to publish the web service of the virtual machine.

To publish the web site, enter the virtual machine and take note of the address of the HTTP protocol.

The "HTTP Server" element operation is based on the virtual server's Ip.
To create a Web server we are going to use the Virtual Machine IP Address; in the left menu go to
Web System> HTTP Servers.

Click the New Web Server... button. Use the Virtual Machine IP Address and the Port where your webserver is running (normally 80)
The following example will create a HTTP server called WordPress:

  1. Web server name
  2. IP: Port of the virtual machine that is running the Web Server (use the information form the Virtual Machine  screen).
  3. Delete button IP:Port.
  4. + button IP:Port:
    • You can add multiple IPs and ports.
    • If set more than one IP:port object, the HTTP server will work as a load balancer distributing requests evenly between all configured IPs.
    • This mechanism is known as Round-Robin Load Balancing .
  5. OK button, allows you to update the list of Web servers in the previous screen.
  6. Cancel button, cancels the operation.

Click on the OK button.

Click on the Commit Changes button to save the HTTP servers. The new HTTP server is now available and can be used to configure a Virtual Host.
  • We already created a HTTP Server object, now the system knows we have a Web Server running on the specified IP:port.
  • Now we need to create a "Virtual Host" in order to associate a domain name to the HTTP server we just created.

Setup a new Virtual Host

Go to Web System -> Virtual Hosts on the left menu.

For a website to be visible on the Internet it is necessary to create a virtual host and configure the domains associated with it.

  1. Virtual host name, there can not be two identical names.
  2. Website protocol.
    • HTTP: Normal protocol for Web sites, without security.
    • HTTPS: Secure web protocol, uses SSL security layer.
      In order to configure HTTPs a Certificate must be acquired first.
      For more information go to the SSL Certificates section.
  3. Button to add domains: You can setup multiple virtual domains on a single host.
  4. Domain name: Here you can add all domains that have been purchased and are pointing to the Cloud.
    We can also put the domain name system default which has the format.
  5. Domains delete button: Delete domains that have been added.
  6. Add Location button: Lets add multiple Locations that can be configured independently.
  7. URI : A URL is simply a URI that happens to point to a physical resource over a network
    For this example we will use the root of the website "/".
  8. Access Restriction: You can allow access to a single network configured on machines and Networks firewall section.
    For this example we will give access to any machine on the Internet with ANY option.
  9. Virtualhost destination: It is the destination Traffic Location.
    It can be a Redirect 301 or 302, or an HTTP server.
    For more information go to the HTTP Servers section.
    For this example we will use a previously configured HTTP server called WORDPRESS.
  10. Option to enable HTTP cache Cloud-Bricks. For this example we'll leave unchecked. 
  11. Locations delete button: You can delete Locations created, this task is irreversible.
  12. OK button: When you click it, the Virtual Hosts list in the previous screen is updated.
  13. Cancel button: Cancels operations made.
Click on the OK button and then click Commit Changes to save the changes. You can now access the web site using

It is possible to edit the Wordpress site.
