BitNami WordPress Stack greatly simplifies the deployment of WordPress and its required dependencies. It can be deployed using a native installer, as a virtual machine, in the cloud or as a module over an already installed infrastructure Stack.
BitNami offers WordPress as a VMware virtual appliance, which contains a minimal Linux operating system (either OpenSuse or Ubuntu) and the fully configured Apache-MySQL-PHP stack that WordPress requires.
As a virtual appliance, WordPress can be deployed in a matter of minutes, and users can be creating content for the Web or an intranet within an hour. WordPress is completely free and several distributions of it are available, allowing users to transition from the virtual appliance to a full fledged Linux implementation of the product. However, most smaller, straightforward sites may never need to move away from BitNami’s virtual appliance version.
The BitNami WordPress Stack native installers were packaged using BitRock’s cross platform installer tool.
