Bitnami WordPress on AWS

Once WordPress has been deployed, the Bitnami applications need to be set and connected to the database.


  • Connect to server using SSH
  • Use a custom domain with WordPress Deployment
  • Secure WorkPress with SSL Certificate
  • Confirm access to PhpMyAdmin
  • Remove the Bitnami Badge

Connect using SSH


Open the MacOS terminal

chmod 600 my-file.pem
ssh -I my-file.pem bitnami@nu8m.com

One source recommended using chmod 400 instead to that it did not permanently change the file permissions. Also, used lowercase “-i” in the option

chmod 400 my-file.pem
ssh -i my-file.pem bitnami@

Install or Update SSL Certificate


sudo /opt/bitnami/bncert-tool
Welcome to the Bitnami HTTPS Configuration tool.
Domain list []: nu8m.com www.nu8m.com
