Understand the default directory structure

NOTE: The Approach A sections referred to below do not apply to Bitnami native installers. Users of Bitnami native installers should refer only to the Approach B sections.

Approach A: Bitnami installations using system packages

The installation process will create several sub-directories under the installdir directory:

  • Servers and related tools: apache2/, mysql/, postgresql/, apache-tomcat/, etc.
  • Languages: php/, python/, ruby/, tcl/, etc.
  • Application files: phpMyAdmin/, drupal/, joomla/, redmine/, etc.
  • Common libraries: common/
  • Licenses of the components included in the stack: licenses/

Application files are stored in the installdir/APPNAME/ directory. The configuration file for the Apache Web server is stored in the installdir/apache2/conf/ directory.

Approach B: Self-contained Bitnami installations

The installation process will create several sub-directories under the installdir directory:

  • Servers and related tools: apache2/, mysql/, postgresql/, apache-tomcat/, etc.
  • Languages: php/, python/, ruby/, tcl/, etc.
  • Application files: apps/phpMyAdmin/, apps/drupal/, apps/joomla/, apps/redmine/, etc.
  • Common libraries: common/
  • Licenses of the components included in the stack: licenses/

Application files are stored in the installdir/apps/APPNAME/htdocs/ directory. The configuration file for the Apache Web server is stored in the installdir/apps/APPNAME/conf/ directory.
