I want to start out by stating that I am new to Fedora, so bear with me . I work doing web design and a myriad of other things at my job. Previously, I used Bitnami with Wordpress on my Windows 10 machine to mess around with some ideas on my local machine, at home. I haven’t used any form of Linux for about 10 years and recently tried to install Bitnami on Fedora, but it is not supported.
Long story short, is there method for doing this in Fedora? I just want to have the ability to use my localhost and WordPress to mess around with some ideas for the websites prior to going into work and doing the actual creation, or potentially just creating my own website.
Try out Sandstorm! While I don’t use it as much any more (see below), it is a great tool, and probably the closest thing to a direct alternative to Bitnami.
Podman! Depending on what you want exactly and your background technical prowess, this may not be right for you. However, I thought I’d mention it anyway as I love containers so much, and they generally make tasks like the one you are trying to do trivial. Find out more here if you are at all interested: Docker
I think I am going to install Sandstorm a little later tonight.
However, I am very interested in this container stuff. Are containers like Software as a Service (SaaS) where I can use a certain piece of software without having to download it locally on my system? I instead would use a container from a separate server that contains the software that I am intending to use. Once I quit using it there are no remnants of it on my device other than whatever I have saved which can be called upon when I utilize the container again? Or are my thoughts on containers completely wrong lol?
