Version 3.8.1
Review by Greg Raven

Incredibly good - For years, when I needed a local instance of WordPress, I’d spend a few hours installing MySQL, downloading and setting up WordPress, configuring my localhost to point to the WordPress install, etc. I could get it to work, but it was a real ordeal, and when I was done, WordPress would not install plug-ins and themes the normal way: I had to download them, manually install them, and then go back to WordPress to use them. Then came MAMP, which made the set-up better, but installing plug-ins or themes still meant exiting WordPress, doing a manual download, moving the files to the correct folder, etc. With Bitnami WordPress stack, everything is self-contained. You launch Bitnami WordPress stack, and not only is everything there, ready to go, but it works just like WordPress. What a deal! It might be my imagination, but I’m pretty certain that Bitnami WordPress stack runs faster than WordPress under MAMP Pro or when I roll my own. The only quibble I have is that because I use BBEdit to work with theme files, I have to go digging to get them: ~/Library/Containers/com.bitnami.wordpress/Data/app-3_8_1/apps/wordpress/htdocs/wp-content/themes/ However, once I get there, I just make an alias of the theme folder and drag it to my desktop for instance access. Problem solved. By the way, not only is Bitnami WordPress stack great for developing and/or tweaking your themes, but it’s fantastic for doing clean-up edits on your posts. Export from your live WordPress, import into Bitnami WordPress stack, and go to town. I’ve done this a couple times, once on a site that started out in WordPress a really long time ago so it had lots of interesting code variations in the posts, and a couple times on bit conversion projects from Movable Type to WordPress. The near-instant response is extremely welcome when you’ve got hundreds or thousands of posts to munge. Thanks you, Bitnami, for making this available.

Would be great except…. - Bitnami Stack for Wordpress was easy to install and easy to get running. Sandboxing killed it for me, though. If you really want to use it properly, download straight from bitnami.org.

Review by DaveDiode

Hands-Down Awesome - I was reluctant during the firestorm of a recent breakage to try to download and install/configure the proper stack to test a WordPress interaction issue. A colleague told me that he'd had WP running in three clicks with BitNami and it was hard to beleive. Nonetheless, three clicks later, there it was! This has been just terrific and I look forward to trying out other BitNami products!

Review by JesusIsGod!

Easy to use and worked well! - I needed to get something going with Wordpress quickly, hosted from my local machine. This tool was excellent, and took care of all the initialization. I struggled with learning Wordpress, but as far as getting it up and running, it was surprising easy and basically effortless with this tool. The documentation was good too. I found out about the tool through the Wordpress site. Thank you!

Super easy to use!! - I’m a complete newbie to WordPress - am setting up my very first site. BitNami was super easy to install and setup, clear step-by-step instructions, took about 5min and I was up and running.
