This is how I walked through the installation process. Here are the links I followed:

  1. Start with and attach static IP at
  2. To login at WordPress, the user is “user”
  3. Update plug-ins and WordPress
  4. Create snapshot just to be safe
  5. Get key at and restart server
  6. Configuration of WordPress: Using more than one top level domain; I also had to edit the wp-config.php file to fix cookie issues.
  7. Add SSL Encryption
  8. HTTP to HTTPS redirections did not work, so installed Really Simple SSL
  9. Install SMTP mail:

Accessing the site via FTP:

The location of the .htaccess file is /opt/bitnami/apache/conf/vhosts/htaccess/wordpress-htaccess.conf.

Location of Logfiles: /opt/bitnami/apache/logs
