I want to run BitNami LAMP stack, but I do not want to use Cloud Hosting Services or Vmware.
Is it possible to install the BitNami Lamp stack on Ubuntu 13.1 as a stand alone server, and then run BitNami modules on it?
By the way your application is fantastic. I ran it on my Windows 7 system, but now it's time to do things the right way, so I am using Ubuntu OS. Hope you can help.

of course you can, Bitnami LAMP Stack pack Apache, MySQL and PHP and manage all the installation and configuration process to relieve you from that task. The installation is local and selfcontained and no Cloud Hosting Services or Vmware are involved in the native installer
By the way, I'm glad to hear that you finally switched to a Linux OS =).
Hope you enjoy: http://bitnami.com/stack/lamp

Headache and Windows are syn·on·y·mous terms. Ubuntu is a pain, but the added security allows for a good night sleep.
Prior to installing Lamp on Ubuntu, I fetched a copy of BitNami Lamp stack and had issues getting it to go public.
I will give it a second try. I was also looking into KVM (Kernal Virtual Machine) available using taskel, but it looks like it will be a while be a while before I figure that out.
I'll get back to you if it doesn't work. Thanks from a BitNami Fan.

Error number one is as follows:
$ gksudo bash ./Downloads/bitnami-lampstack-5.4.23-0-linux-installer(1).run
bash: syntax error near unexpected token `('

to run the installer:
chmod +x ~/Downloads/bitnami-lampstack-5.4.23-0-linux-installer(1).run
The first one is to give execution permissions to the installer, the second one executes the installer.

Type this in your terminal:
chmod +x bitnami-lampstack-5.4.23-0-linux-x64-installer.run
Its the ./ that does the trick.

Thank you both for getting me up and running. It was odd that after performing an update command that the OS still couldn't find the package, but I'm sure it had something to do with my driver's license being expired. Student drivers are the worst.
I believe I found some article detailing how to configure Apache to serve pages from two servers based on Virtual Host settings, so I'm off Googling again. Thanks again. Hopefully, some day I will have crashed my system enough times to be able to instruct someone else out there on what NOT to do.

Hi, I am starting to like this idea, I also have Ubuntu 13.1, and am considering moving my local site from a bitnami install on win8 to Ubuntu. Wondering if there is also some documentation on setting up the static IP addresses/DNS for hosting, instead of using the cloud hosting? Any slick way to do this on a home server with at&t?
#11 By: David Asce, December 27th, 2013 07:46
You'll need to enable port fordwarding in your router to your Lamp Server to allow access to your app from internet and you'll also need to register a domain name and make it point to your public ip.
Edit: Sorry @avm_solon, please take a look at the following guide: http://wiki.bitnami.com/Native_Installers_Quick_Start_Guide#How_to_install_and_make_public_any_BitNami_Stack.3f
Hope that helps!

I read the link you inserted @asce but don't the DNS forwarding services require you to alter the URL to the name they assign when you sign up? So, if I bought the name ShowMeMn.com,
don't they change it to somename.ShowMeMn.com?
I was wondering if anyone has ever considered using the Apache directive(s)
(Read More...) Link 1
DirectoryIndex index.php index.html
Deny from all
What are your thoughts on using these Apache directives instead of the DNS services?

The UseCanonicalName directive would not let the clients around the Internet to access to your server. They need to have a way to convert your domain name to your IP address, and this is done using a DNS server, as explained in the link provided by @asce.
If you use a free DNS service provider, they are going to add something to your URL. If you want your URL to be ShowMeMn.com, you have to pay for it.
