I was looking for any guide or to know whether it's possible to use Vanilla forums on google app engine.
Looking forward to helpful replies,
Looks like they support PHP and a MySQL compatible "Cloud SQL".
You can find the PHP getting started page here: https://developers.google.com/appengine/docs/php/gettingstarted/introduction

This is why I prefer to IaaS to PaaS. There is no trying to get a platform specific version, that you can't use outside of this platform.
grep is your friend.
In theory vanilla should be compatible:https://developers.google.com/appengine/docs/php/#PHP_Enabled_extensions
You could even use memcached
However, as far as I understand, you cannot store files directly where your app is.
It should be possible to direct PATH_CONF, PATH_CACHE and PATH_UPLOADS to a google cloud storage bucket from your bootstrap.php
Would be an interesting experiment.

Will give this a try and report how it goes. Thanks a lot guys.
I was about to try it yesterday, but was reluctant to set up billing for SQL, so I got stuck there.
However the equivalent of vanillas .htaccess rewrite rules on AppEngine should be something like:
- url: /(.*\.(ico$|jpg$|png$|gif$|css$|js$))
- url: /(.*)
(be careful, untested!)
If it works, please post your steps in the tutorials section!
