IMPORTANT, please fill the questions
We assume you are using Bitnami to deploy your application.
Which version of the application are you using?: lampstack-7.1.10-1
Please choose how you got the application: Installer (Windows, Linux, macOS), cloud image (AWS, GCE, Azure, ...) or VM (VMDK, VBOX): installed on ubuntu LTS14.10 (local)
Have you installed any plugin or modified any configuration file?: no, fresh lamp install and fresh drupal-module 7.56 on top ; both work as expected
Describe here your question/suggestion/issue (expected and actual results):
I want to have a drupal 7 and a drupal 8 website alongside each other, because upgrading from 7 to 8 is a process of migration from one instance to another, as explained here
I have installed the bitnami-drupal-7.56-2-module-linux-x64-installer, which added drupal 7 in apps/drupal folder.
When i now try to install bitnami-drupal-8.4.0-0-module-linux-x64-installer , it says that drupal already exists and that I should first de-install this previous version.
But I actually need both versions on the same server, because the new site will have to read the database of the old site in order to do the migration.
Can i somehow move the first drupal-site to another path on localhost, so as to empty the drupal-folder and get on with the install?
In phpmyadmin i saw that the version is in the database-name, so it seems only to be a problem of name of the directory.
