Description:
I am evaluating google cloud platform for installing a test wordpress website. I installed Wordpress By Bitnami and create a VM instanace. Initial IP is assigned and machine is up and running after wordpress install. When I click on IP address ( either with /wp-admin or with IP only) I cant access the page. When I ping IP address, its perfectly fine but I cant reach to it when hit using IP adress in browser. I used SSH, its also working well.

I am having a similar problem. Installed Bitnami with Wordpress multisite, but cannot access the Wordpress login page via browser. I have also gone ahead and change it to a static IP. However, I can access Bitnami through SSH.

Hello, I just got in the same issue and stepped on your post. I hop this might help:
“WordPress Multisite” requires that you use different domain names for each site in order to make it work, ip address won’t do anything but accessing your stack.
you can find more here:

Hi!

Thanks for using Bitnami WordPress Multisite!

Hi @mei,

The xip.io domain seems down, can you follow this guide to update the application to use the nip.io domain?

https://docs.bitnami.com/google/apps/wordpress-multisite/configuration/configure-wordpress-multisite/#configure-the-domain-for-the-wordpress-multisite-main-blog

You will need to run these commands

cd /opt/bitnami/apps/wordpress
sudo ./bnconfig --machine_hostname MACHINE_IP_ADDRESS.nip.io

Best regards,
Jose Antonio Carmona
