The general quality of Bitnami installers/preconfigured machines is now terrible. What used to be a quick solution for a lot of deployments is now endless tinkering with almost every product under the bitnami stack, including something as simple as Wordpress.
Google error - oh what do you know Bitnami's ranked number one and hundreds of comments about the fact that most errors are pertaining to laziness in the Bitnami setup itself or something the user has to fix on Bitnami's behalf.
This makes the concept of Bitnami useless then, something that is supposed to save time is now more commonly a total waste of it.
I make this post having tried 6 different installers/VMs for a variety of software over the past week and all of them failing 'out the box', with errors related to a poor setup on Bitnami's behalf.
