The CakePHP framework is installed in the "frameworks" folder in the installation directory. To run any command, it is necessary to start the BitNami Console. If you are using a Virtual Appliance or AMI, you can run the commands below directly.
In the "cakephp" folder you can see the following folder schema:
app conf index.php lib plugins README vendors
All the application files are in the "app" folder and only the "app/webroot" directory will be published in the web site.
You should modify the encryption keys in the "app/Config/core.php" file:
Configure::write('Security.salt', ''); Configure::write('Security.cipherSeed', '');
If your application are going to use a database, you can edit the database settings at "app/Config/database.php".
If you want to enable the sample application, you should uncomment the following line at the end of the Apache configuration file "installdir/apache2/conf/httpd.conf".
Then restart the Apache server and go to http://mydomain/cakephp from your browser.
$ ./ctlscript.sh restart apache
If you are using PostgreSQL, you should enable the "php_pdo_pgsql" extension in the php.ini file.
