Configure a static IP address
To configure a static IP address for the Bitnami virtual machine:
Log in to the server console.
Obtain the network interface name using the command below. Typically, the interface name is of the form enXXXX. Note the virtual machine’s IP address associated with the interface.
$ sudo ifconfig
Create a configuration file for the network interface by copying an existing configuration file and placing it in the /etc/systemd/network directory. In this example, assume that the new configuration file is named 25-wired.network:
$ cd /etc/systemd/network $ sudo cp 99-dhcp.network 25-wired.network
Edit the new configuration file and update it to look like the configuration below. Replace the INTERFACE-NAME, HOST-IP-ADDRESS and GATEWAY-IP-ADDRESS placeholders with the name of the network interface, the host IP address obtained previously, and the gateway IP address, as shown in the example.
[Match] Name=INTERFACE-NAME [Network] Address=HOST-IP-ADDRESS Gateway=GATEWAY-IP-ADDRESS

Save your changes and restart the virtual machine for the changes to take effect.
