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?


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

    PHP 7.0 was released on December 3, 2015. It promises substantial speed improvements over previous versions of the language, along with new features like scalar type hinting. This guide explains how to quickly upgrade a PHP 5.x installation on an Ubuntu 14.04 system with Apache or Nginx, using community-provided packages.
  • Hi,

    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

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


  • @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.
