Tested it again and still the same issue with bitnami-wordpress and bitnami-wordpressmultisite 4.9.5-2.
From first login to the Wordpress site, I am unable to reach Wordpress.org to add themes or plugins.
See attached screenshot for error. I’m wondering if connection times out since local access to site seems slow in general compared to bitnami-wordpress-4.9.2-1 where pages load almost instantly.
I am running the virtual machines on the latest Virtual Box on the same Mac running High Sierra 10.13.4.
I install and use all virtual machines the same way without making any modifications to the installation/bitnami.
Can you reproduce the issue on your side?
I will continue to use the working version that I downloaded from provided links until this is resolved.
Thanks for your help!
