Where do I find my install?

I have just installed MediaWiki on Amazon EC2 – very nice installation process. Everything seems to be working: I can see my wiki’s Main Page.

I have installed MediaWiki before on my machine at home, just on a local server. I know (more or less) how to fiddle with LocalSettings.php, get Math running, install packages, etc.

My problem is: Where do I find my MediaWiki directories now that I’m on EC2? When I SSH in to my instance, as user bitnami, it all seems to work fine, but there is nothing in the directory. I do ‘ls’ and there’s nothing, just a few hidden (‘dot’) directories. I can change directories, etc, but have no idea what I’m looking for. I guess I was expecting a directory called MediaWiki…

Sorry, this seems pretty basic and I’m sure I’m just being thick, but if anyone can point me in the right direction, I think I can figure it out from there.

The installation directory in Amazon EC2 is “/opt/bitnami”. You can find more info about AMIs configuration at
