You can find more information about how to deploy your custom PHP application at https://wiki.bitnami.com/Applications/BitNami_Custom_PHP_application
For Drupal, you can install it manually or install our Bitnami Drupal Module in top of your LAMP stack. You can find the download links for the Bitnami Drupal Module at https://bitnami.com/stack/lamp/modules#drupal
For security and performance reasons, we disable .htaccess by default for the Bitnami apps. http://wiki.bitnami.com/Components/Apache/htaccess_configuration31
Also, you can find more information on how to deny connections from bots/attackers in our wiki page at https://wiki.bitnami.com/components/apache#How_to_deny_connections_from_bots.2fattackers.3f
Hope it helps,Gonzalo
Hi Gonzalo,Thanks for your response . On the Top of LAMP Stack , Can you please state the FOLDER STRUCTURE to install the App.I am installing Drupal Commerce. is it /opt/bitnami/app/DRUPAL (Create Drupal folder & Install ) OR is it / opt/bitnami/htdocs
The Bitnami approach is to create a new folder in /opt/bitnami/apps. You can find more info about the directory structure and the necessary config files at https://wiki.bitnami.com/Applications/BitNami_Custom_PHP_application
If you prefer you can also install Drupal in a different location.
Hope it helps,Gonzalo.
