Modify the interface language

Before running the commands shown on this page, you should load the Bitnami stack environment by executing the installdir/use_APPNAME script (Linux and MacOS) or by clicking the shortcut in the Start Menu under “Start -> Bitnami APPNAME Stack -> Application console” (Windows). On OS X VMs, the installation directory is /opt/bitnami and OS X VM users can click the “Open Terminal” button to run commands. Learn more about the Bitnami stack environment and about OS X VMs.

The Bitnami Coppermine Stack uses the English language pack by default. However, translations also exist for other languages. To change the interface language, follow these steps:

  • Log in to the application as an administrator.

  • Select the “Config” menu item.

  • Select the “Language & Charset settings” sub-menu.

  • Select a new default language from the list of available options.
