Install Bitnami LAMP Stack directly


Is it possible to install a Bitnami LAMP stack directly (without using their launchpad) I prefer PHP7 and ubuntu and I assume this one has both:

If its possible, what are the SSH commands I should run?



The link you provided gives me 404. But no worries. I googled it and found it. Thanks a lot for all you do.

I think best way now to do what I need is install their recommended LAMP stack and upgrade the PHP.


@addresshr - Also, you may need to create swap space to virtually increase your memory, specially if you use the 1GB droplets.


Just tried running this one:

in fresh Debian 8.2 x64 droplet. I got the same errors I got in Ubuntu 14 x64. Check this screenshot:

What can I do?


EDIT: Turned out it was a insufficient memory problem as stated in the warning I got before installing. Tried it with a 4GB Debian 8 droplet and worked like a charm. Thanks

warren and gndo, thanks for the answers. So here’s what I have done so far.

Then ran the following commands chmod 755 /root/ --mode text

It installed without any errors.

Then I read this note about “What are the “development” and “production” modes for applications” in Bitnami Wiki (link provided by warren) If my assumption is right, then in the above, I installed a development mode version which means it not as secure as Bitnami’s recommended “LAMP Stack 5.5.31-0 (64-bit)”

So I installed that (i. e. to another fresh Ubuntu 14 x64 and it gave me lot of errors. It didn’t occur me to take a screenshot or something of these errors. I’ll redo it later and let you know about those errors.

Im going to try to run that 5.5.31 stack installer in a Debian x64 because that was the OS Bitnami Launchpad used. Maybe I won’t get those errors on that.


@addresshr - The closest thing I can think of to match Bitnami is to start off with a 1-click LAMP droplet and then using your preferred package manager (or installed control panel) to install the individual components that match the pre-installed Bitnami packages. It’s a pain to figure out which packages match, but you’ll end up with a finer control of how much bloat to leave out/in of your system once you do figure this out.

How do I install it in DigitalOcean droplet? What are the commands I should run?


Try getting the installer, found here:


I want to know if its possible do either of following without using Bitnami launchpad.

  • Install LAMP stack with PHP7 and other components included in Bitnami package (i.e. FastCGI, OpenSSL, phpMyAdmin, ModSecurity, SQLite, Varnish, ImageMagick etc.) in a fresh ubuntu server or
  • Install LAMP stack with earlier PHP (I think if I install via Launchpad, it installs Php 5) and other components included in Bitnami package in a fresh ubuntu server, then upgrade the PHP to PHP7

Any of the above works for me.

Bottom line is I need following things:

  • PHP7
  • Fresh Ubuntu
  • Include all bitnami components (i.e. FastCGI, OpenSSL, phpMyAdmin, ModSecurity, SQLite, Varnish, ImageMagick etc.).

I think they have both of the above in here (the link I provided in my first post)

I just don’t know if its possible and how to use them in DigitalOcean.

Thanks for replying

Did you just want to update to PHP7 on top of your existing Ubuntu?
