Download and install a Bitnami stack

Native installers for Bitnami stacks are distributed as binary executables. They can be downloaded from the Bitnami website.

The downloaded file will be named bitnami-APPNAME-VERSION-osx-x86_64-installer.dmg.

  • To begin the installation process in graphical mode as a normal user, double-click the downloaded file and follow the instructions shown.

  • To install the stack as administrator on OS X, follow these steps:

    • Double-click the downloaded .dmg file.

    • Once the disk is mounted, open a new terminal window (using “Finder -> Applications -> Utilities -> Terminal”).

    • Navigate to the folder /Volumes/APPNAME. Replace the APPNAME placeholder with the name of the application folder in the mounted volume.

        $ cd ./Volumes/APPNAME
    • Run the following command:

        $ sudo ./

    NOTE: If you are using the stack manager for OS X-VM, you need to run the sudo ./ command instead of the above mentioned.
