Viability of Many Suns
This is the first of a thread of related posts on a hypothetical alternate universe/Light Plane.

(Will be updated as more are asked.)
I have a heliocentric stellar system with 27 stars ranging in mass from blue giants to white dwarfs. There's also a few main sequence stars thrown in for good measure. I also want an earth like planet to exist in this system for about 7 billion years. It only has to orbit one of the stars, not all of them. The stars can orbit one another in concentric rings or in binary-like systems. You can rearrange these suns--make them any size/type/distance/orbit pattern you like--so long as there are 27 of them. I don't want any black holes.
They must be within 1 light minute-5 light-days of distance. They must also be in a perfectly stable orbital arrangement.
The planet must have an oxygen atmosphere and must be solid. (not a gaseuous planet. Solid core, molten mantle and solid crust. The orbits must be long-term stable and the system **must have the specified number of suns. There must be at least one white dwarf and at least one giant blue star. Assume for all intents and purposes that the suns will live for the regular lifespan.
How would this be possible? Manipulate the suns, planet, orbits, arrangements of orbits, shapes of orbits, times, distances, sun types, gravity, planet size, planet gravity, even the gravity of the universe, and add/take away moons as needed as needed. I don't know how to arrange the stars and this planet in such a way that I can get the longterm stability that I'm after. Can they be arranged in a stable way and if not, what would need to change to make them stable?
VERY Science based answers only please. Handwavium/unobtanium/it's magic answers NOT acceptable. Feel free to add/remove any planets nearby and do the same with moons: so long as I get my key planet. I would prefer having at least 1 moon, but it's okay if I can't have one. The planet will be pretty white/reflective and have lots of ozone to protect it from all of the solar radiation, as well as a unique magnetic field.
About temperatures. Let the planet fry. I just need orbital stability.
Magnetics: This will be left for a later post, but assume that the planet has a super-powerful magnetic field to protect it from the radiation of all 27 suns.
Gravity: Manipulate as you see fit (no making gravity stronger.) But you can (ONLY IF YOU MUST TO MAKE THIS SYSTEM WORK) make gravity UP TO five times weaker.
Black Holes: Just assume that there are none. Don't add any. No black holes, period.

And thank you to the Sandbox for your help.
Note to close-voters/mods: I'd like this closed as a duplicate of "How To Make an Earth with 27 Suns Work, Attempt Two: Orbital Stability" since the question is redone and answered there, so anyone visiting this page will be redirected to the question with the full answer.
