I have made my changes to my blog website and now I am going through the process of deploying on AWS.
Go to the bitnami website and find the page stack/lamp/modules. Copy the link for download for Drupal module. After you change the file access permissions (command shown above), run the file. You will be asked a few questions including where the folder will reside (which is /opt/bitnami) and to create a username for drupal. You will be asked for your password for phpmyadmin root user. After the installation is complete you can visit your website with your ip address/drupal. To login you give the username you set and the root password.
Currently the website is configured so that it is using a prefix to route this website. We don't want that and would rather not have the /drupal at the end of the url. Firstly in /apps/drupal/conf edit httpd-vhosts.conf. Update it to the correct domain name. Currently I have commented out the secure virtual host but will come back to that.
So we want to change the configuration so the drupal website runs on v-hosts rather than the default prefix. Go to stack/apache2/conf/bitnami. Edit bitnami-apps-prefix.conf and comment out the inclusion of httpd-prefix.conf. After that edit bitnami-apps-vhosts.conf and include the vhost file.
