BitRock Web Stacks Now on BitNami.org

As you may know, BitRock Web Stacks make it easy to have a complete Apache, MySQL, and PHP (AMP) stack installed and running on Windows, Linux or Mac OS X in just minutes. We recently released new versions of our popular WAMP, LAMP and MAMP stacks on BitNami.org, a website built to help encourage the adoption of open source software by making it easier to install and configure. In addition to the Web Stacks, you will find several application stacks for popular open source software such as Joomla!, Drupal, Mediawiki and Roller. Just like BitRock Web Stacks, they include everything you need to run the software and come packaged in a fast, easy to use installer. All BitNami stacks are released under the terms of the Apache 2.0 license.
