Lightsail Bitnami

How to disable Small Bitnami Icon from Lightsail WordPress ?

Okay, this is kind of necessary because something changed but isn’t updated on documentation, So I assume lot of people might be facing the problem at the time of writing of this article. So what is the problem exactly ?

When we use default WordPress install with Amazon light sail or for that matter Bitnami installation anywhere, we get a small Bitnami icon in the bottom right corner.

Now when you click on this icon it takes you to the page where information related to Bitnami installation is given and at the bottom you find link to Remove Banner.

Now, Instructions should work as it is but In my case as Readme.txt tells me Bitnami WordPress Stack 5.3.2-3 it didn’t work. Why you might ask ?

sudo /opt/bitnami/apps/APPNAME/bnconfig --disable_banner 1

Because there is no bnconfig file at specified directory location which should be /opt/bitnami/apps/wordpress/binconfig .

However I found there is another file located which is bnconfig.disabled so I decided to give it a try, after all what do i have to loose on a fresh install. so i did

sudo /opt/bitnami/apps/wordpress/bnconfig.disabled --disable_banner 1

And it worked for me without even apache restart, however I still did an apache restart just to be sure.

sudo /opt/bitnami/ctlscript.sh restart apache

I hope this works out for anyone looking for solution.
