Drupal is not supported out of the box so you'll have to do some manual setup.

Start with the Configuration Wizard. In the two fields at the top enter the URL to your Drupal site and the directory where Drupal is installed in. Please note that pressing the green Auto-detect button will NOT do anything at all since Drupal is not supported out of the box.

That's why you'll have to proceed to the next section called "Database connection". In there you need to enter the connection information to your Drupal site. Remember to also enter the correct prefix.

In the final "Site information" section you need to choose:
  • Script type: Generic or bespoke PHP script
  • Embedded restoration script: ANGIE for Miscellaneous PHP Applications


Finally click on the blue Submit button to have the wizard adjust the backup settings.

Please remember that restoring Drupal sites will not re-configure them automatically. If you transfer a Drupal site to a different location, server or host you will have to adjust Drupal's configuration manually by directly editing files or using drush (as far as I can understand).
