I installed the Bitnami LAMP stack from Amazon Lightsail. This is my first time operating VPS on my own, needless to say, it's been a bit of a challenge, so thank you in advance to anyone that can assist with my inquiry.
I'm trying to install Statamic, a flat file CMS. In the Help Docs on the site, it says the following passage:
Make sure you have mod_rewrite enabled and rename the sample.htaccess file to .htaccess, taking special care to ensure that it’s in the same directory as your index.php file. They’re best friends, don’t separate them.
I found some Bitnami Help docs specifically for how to configure .htaccess, but I don't quite understand what it's recommending:
The content of the .htaccess files have been moved to the /opt/bitnami/apps/APPNAME/conf/htaccess.conf file. For example, the Bitnami MediaWiki application uses the following configuration files:
The /opt/bitnami/apps/mediawiki/conf/httpd-app.conf file is the main application configuration file (previous versions called it mediawiki.conf). It also sources the htaccess.conf file.
The only app folder I see refers to phpmyadmin. I didn't deploy one of the apps from the Bitnami setup, but instead, installed Statamic on my own.
Will this still apply?
FWIW, the /opt/bitnami/apps/phpmyadmin/conf folder does contain a httpd-app.conf file. Do I proceed with using this one somehow?
Relative newb to managing my own servers, it's a fun trip, but frustrating so far. Really appreciate the help!
