Configure the WordPress with NGINX and SSL domain name

NOTE: We are in the process of modifying the file structure and configuration for many Bitnami stacks. On account of these changes, the file paths stated in this guide may change depending on whether your Bitnami stack uses native Linux system packages (Approach A), or if it is a self-contained installation (Approach B). To identify your Bitnami installation type and what approach to follow, run the command below:

 $ test ! -f "/opt/bitnami/common/bin/openssl" && echo "Approach A: Using system packages." || echo "Approach B: Self-contained installation."

The output of the command indicates which approach (A or B) is used by the installation, and will allow you to identify the paths, configuration and commands to use in this guide. Refer to the FAQ for more information on these changes.

If you are using WordPress v3.3.1-5 or higher, only specify your domain name in the WordPress wp-config.php configuration file. Edit and replace the following lines as shown, remembering to replace the DOMAIN placeholder with the actual domain name you wish to use:

NOTE: Depending on your installation type, the WordPress wp-config.php configuration file can be found in the following locations:

  • Approach A (Bitnami installations using system packages): /opt/bitnami/wordpress/wp-config.php

  • Approach B (Self-contained Bitnami installations): /opt/bitnami/apps/wordpress/htdocs/wp-config.php

define('WP_SITEURL', 'http://' . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] . '/');
define('WP_HOME', 'http://' . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] . '/');

with

define('WP_SITEURL', 'http://DOMAIN/');
define('WP_HOME', 'http://DOMAIN/');

NOTE: Your domain name should be correctly propagated for this to work. You can verify the new DNS record by using the Global DNS Propagation Checker and entering your domain name into the search field.

To use WordPress with multiple domains, use the Bitnami WordPress Multisite Stack instead.
