PhpMyAdmin table export on Amazon Lightsale
Hello, I have issues with table export from PhpMyAdmin on the Amazon Lightsale instance. I have access to my website database PhpMyAdmin through Local Host and until yesterday I was normally downloading databases and uploading new ones, but since yesterday I can't download them in any of the browsers. I can normally execute all commands and everything working fine except data export any advice is welcome. I have few other servers and database or table export is normally working.

Can I Get the Port 25 Restriction Removed Without Using EC2 or Lightsail?
I have used AWS Simple Email Service for several years in my Ruby on Rails web applications. I want to do SMTP checking of email addresses entered on my contact form using a Ruby Gem [Truemail](https://github.com/truemail-rb/truemail). I contacted the gem developers because I had problems with port closed errors I was [told](https://github.com/truemail-rb/truemail/issues/227) that the gem requires that port 25 be open. I currently use another port to send emails from my websites. I have searched the AWS documentation but I have only found these two link regarding the port removal. Both require that you submit a request to remove email sending limitations form. https://aws.amazon.com/premiumsupport/knowledge-center/ec2-port-25-throttle/ https://aws.amazon.com/premiumsupport/knowledge-center/lightsail-port-25-throttle/ I have never used EC2 or Lightsail. The only thing I can do in AWS SES is to increase the sending quote and the sending rate. I sent an email to the billing department asking for estimates for using EC2 or Lightsail just in case I need to use one of themto remove the port 25 restriction. However I sincerely hope there is maybe some other way.

How to create Kali Linux container on LightSail
I tried to create Kali Linux container on LighiSail. I've specified 'Image' as 'kalilinux/kali-rolling' and instance type as Micro x1. Then I started deploying, but I got an error. The Log message of container is as follows. ``` [18/9/2022:07:33:12] [deployment:1] Creating your deployment [18/9/2022:07:34:41] [deployment:1] Started 1 new node [18/9/2022:07:36:14] [deployment:1] Started 1 new node [18/9/2022:07:37:39] [deployment:1] Started 1 new node ``` Is there a way to resolve this?
Lightsail Wordpress - Welcome to nginx!
Hi Everbody, I have been using Bitnami Wordpress on AWS Lightsail for a year now. When I go the home page (www.connorpek.com), now it now says "Welcome to nginx!". I didn't change any configuration files in the terminal, and my wordpress content seems to be in the right file locations. My Wordpress installation lives at the same file path as everybody else with Bitnami wordpress, which is `home/bitnami/stack/wordpress`. Research indicated my server isn't pointing my home page to the right file, which should be `home/bitnami/stack/wordpress/index.php` like everyone elses. Research also indicates I could make that change in the `.htaccess` file, but I am unable to locate that file in my Lightsail Bitnami Wordpress installation. Research also indicates the PHP logs would give me more detail, but I'm unauthorized to access files in`home/bitnami/stack/php/logs`. Thanks a bunch, Connor
how to post static files alongside wordpress installation that uses the same domain as the wordpress site
i am running a wordpress instance on lightsail with static ip and am pointing my domain earthjay.com to this. the wordpress works. i want to be able to sftp upload files to a static directory that has the same domain. my wordpress has thousands of existing url links to files in a directory earthjay.com/earthquakes (and subsidiary directories, e.g., earthjay.com/earthquakes/20220914_norcal). i learned that i cannot create a directory 'earthquakes' within htdocs. i created a directory in htdocs, but when i enter that url earthjay.com/earthquakes, the browser just shows my wordpress site. can i use sftp to create a subdirectory in my lightsail space or do i need to create a separate instance where i can place these files. files i want to post include jpg/pngs, pdfs, and other files (e.g., *.docx, *.xlsx, *.zip, etc.). do i use a "bucket?" the key thing is that wherever i place these files, they need to have the ability to be found at e.g., earthjay.com/earthquakes/*.* thanks in advance for your kind assistance.
Redirecting all Lightsail IP urls to domain.
I am running a Wordpress instance on Amazon Lightsail. I want any urls a user may try and visit using the IP to redirect to the same url but with the domain. i.e. 18.104.22.168/contact should redirect to moodstudiolondon.com/contact. I have set the domain explicitly in wp-config.php. I have tried rewriting htaccess to redirect away from the IP, this either does not work or breaks the setup completely. What am I doing wrong? I have tried every solution I can find either on here or on the wider web. Nothing so far has worked. Please help! Currently only the main IP is redirecting to the domain because of the wp-config change. If htaccess is the answer have I changed the incorrect config file? My instance is using system packages and is not self-contained however I have already tried editing the htaccess.conf at /opt/bitnami/apache2/conf/vhosts/wordpress-vhost.conf to no avail. Thanks
