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

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.

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

Option 1: 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: 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

#bitnami-banner{
display:none;
}

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.
