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".
|NOTE: This guide uses "/opt/bitnami" to refer to the installation directory. This is the default installation directory for Virtual Machines and Cloud Images. If you have installed your BitNami stack in a different folder, replace "/opt/bitnami" with your installation directory in the examples.|
If you want to enable the sample application, you should uncomment the following line at the end of the Apache configuration file "/opt/bitnami/apache2/conf/bintami/bitnami-apps-prefix.conf".
Then restart the Apache server and go to http://example.com/cakephp in your browser.
$ ./ctlscript.sh restart apache
If you are using PostgreSQL, you should enable the "php_pdo_pgsql" extension in the php.ini file.
In case you want to move CakePHP framework to be available in the root URL (without the "/cakephp" sub-uri), edit the "/opt/bitnami/frameworks/cakephp/conf/httpd-prefix.conf" file and add the "DocumentRoot" option and comment the "Alias" entries:
DocumentRoot "/opt/bitnami/frameworks/cakephp/app/webroot/" #Alias /cakephp/ "/opt/bitnami/frameworks/cakephp/app/webroot/" #Alias /cakephp "/opt/bitnami/frameworks/cakephp/app/webroot" Include "/opt/bitnami/frameworks/cakephp/conf/httpd-app.conf"
Then restart Apache server:
$ sudo /opt/bitnami/ctlscript.sh restart apache
