Media won't show live - Wordpress - AWS lightsail

Keywords: WordPress - AWS - How to - Other

Hi, hopefully someone can help me with a small issue I have with my wordpress site hosted on AWS Lightsail.

Once I am editing the page in wp-admin I can see all the images, videos, however when I try to access the page live, they just disappear from the page.

Do you know what might cause this?

Thousand thanks!

Hi @pawielbadovsky,

Thank you for using our solution. That’s a specific question about the application so we suggest you ask in the official forums of the application to get more information about that. The app’s documentation should also describe how to troubleshoot this issue, so please take a look at it too.

However, we will also keep this ticket open in this forum in case any Bitnami user ran into a similar issue recently.


Hi Jota,

Thank you for reaching out to me.

I found and fixed the issue. I had to change the WordPress domain name from the IP to actual domain name with SCP. The issue was that there was SSL on the domain but no SSL on the IP and all media URLs were basically IP urls.

Have a nice day!
