I've installed LAMP Server using tasksel. I've installed phpMyAdmin, which I know from experience gets in /phpmyadmin. That works. Then I installed drupal6. I assumed that it would get in /drupal, but that's not the case.

How can I find that kind of information? Of course, in this case, I'm looking for my Drupal install, but I would like to avoid having to spend so much time every time I install a web application, so I'm looking for a generic way.

I don't think there is a common way for all web applications. It depends on how they were packaged. I agree this is not ideal.

In the case of drupal6 though, the example apache2 configuration file is created as /etc/drupal/6/apache.conf.

To get drupal6 working as expected in your question, you need to

  1. copy /etc/drupal/6/apache.conf to /etc/apache2/sites-available/drupal6

    sudo cp /etc/drupal/6/apache.conf to /etc/apache2/sites-available/drupal6

  2. link /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/drupal6 to /etc/apache2/sites-available/drupal6

    cd /etc/apache2/sites-enabled

    sudo ln -sf /etc/apache2/sites-available/drupal6 .

  3. Restart apache2 for the changes to take effect.

    sudo service apache2 restart

  4. You can then install drupal6 by visiting http://localhost/drupal6/install.php in a web browser.
