At the end of this step, you will have installed the Bitnami WordPress Stack.
Begin by downloading the Bitnami WordPress Stack for your platform (https://bitnami.com/stack/wordpress/installer). Once downloaded, follow these steps:
On Windows and Mac OS X, begin the installation process by double-clicking the installation executable. On Linux, give the installer executable permissions and then execute the installation file, as shown below:
NOTE: Mac OS X installers can use port 80 only when run as a system administrator with the sudo command.
chmod 755 bitnami-APPNAME-VERSION-linux.run
The application will now begin installing to the directory you specified. The process usually takes a few minutes: a status indicator provides a progress update.
Once installation is complete, you will see a success message. Check the box to launch the Bitnami WordPress Stack and click “Finish” to complete the installation.
This should launch a new browser window with a welcome screen, as shown below. You can also access this welcome screen by launching your Web browser and entering the URL http://localhost or http://localhost:8080 (depending on which platform you’re using and whether you installed the stack as an administrator or regular user) into the browser address bar.
Click the “Access WordPress” link and you should see the front page of your blog with a sample post, as below:
Bitnami native installers include a graphical tool to manage the database and Web servers. This tool is named manager-windows.exe (on Windows), manager-osx (on Mac OS X) or manager-linux-x64.run (on Linux) and is located in the installation directory. To use this tool, double-click the file and then use the graphical interface to start, stop or restart servers. Server log messages can be checked in the “Server Events” tab.
