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.
$ 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 placeholder with the actual name of the network interface and update the example IP address, gateway and DNS server with values that reflect your local network
[Match] Name=INTERFACE-NAME [Network] Address=10.1.10.9/24 Gateway=10.1.10.1 DNS=10.1.10.1
Save your changes and restart the virtual machine for the changes to take effect.
