How to remove Bitnami footer banner from WordPress site

If you are using Amazon Web Server to host your WordPress website you would have found it annoying there is a tiny little icon on the bottom right corner of the wp-login page.

You may want to get rid of it but not sure how. I have explained in this post how you can remove the Bitnami footer banner from the WordPress site easily.

Bitnami, by default, adds a footer banner with version information, license etc, to all of your Bitnami apps. The Bitnami Info page provides information about the installed application resources as well as useful links to documentation. It is accessible by clicking on the Bitnami banner in the right bottom corner.

What is Bitnami?

The Bitnami Info Page contains information on the application resources that have been installed, as well as relevant links to documentation. It is accessed by clicking the Bitnami banner in the application’s bottom right corner.

In case you want to remove the banner, there are three options, as mentioned below:

Remove the Bitnami Footer Banner

Option 1: Remove the Bitnami Footer Banner Using SSH

This first method may not be friendly for absolute beginners but considering you are on AWS, I assume you know how to use SSH login. You will just need to SSH into your machine and then execute the following command:

sudo /opt/bitnami/apps/wordpress/bnconfig --disable_banner 1
sudo  /opt/bitnami/ctlscript.sh restart apache

Option 2: Remove the Banner Without SSH Access

The easiest way to do this without getting into the backend is to edit the custom CSS. This method is even suitable for beginners who don’t know how to use Putty or how to use CSS. Just paste the given code, and you will be good to go.

In the admin panel, go to Appearance -> Customize -> General- Main

In the custom CSS section paste


Sometimes the following CSS will work

.bitnami-corner-image { 
display: none !important; 

Option 3: Tweak bnconfig file

Again, this method is technical and require knowledge of SSH client. However, it is the most relevant solution as well because using the CSS method we just hid the icon from showing but this method will actually disable the page, including the logo.

To disable the banner open /opt/bitnami/apache2/conf/httpd.conf and comment on the line Include /opt/bitnami/apps/bitnami/banner/conf/banner.conf adding a # before it. (It may be on line 550 or above)

Then restart apache executing: 

sudo /opt/bitnami/ctlscript.sh restart apache


Hope this post helps you get rid of the annoying Bitnami footer banner. These are the two straightforward approaches for disabling the banner. Personally, I suggest that a newbie use the CSS technique.

If you run into any difficulties when deleting the banner, you should consult the Bitnami WordPress instructions or just leave a comment in the box below.
