Switch from Apache to Nginx

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.

If you want to switch the Web server, stop and disable Apache and enable and start NGINX:

$ installdir/ stop apache
$ mv installdir/apache2/scripts/ installdir/apache2/scripts/
$ mv installdir/nginx/scripts/ installdir/nginx/scripts/
$ installdir/ start nginx

For native installers, enable and start PHP-FPM:

$ mv installdir/php/scripts/ installdir/php/scripts/
$ installdir/ start php-fpm
