CakePHP Framework | Installation and Configuration
  • Difficulty Level : Expert
  • Last Updated : 12 Jun, 2020

CakePHP is an open-source framework for PHP based on a Model–View–Controller (MVC)-like architecture and modeled after the concepts of Ruby on Rails, which is powerful as well as easy to learn. It’s a foundational structure for programmers to create web applications. Models, Views, and Controllers are used for the separation of business logic from data and presentation layers.

Prerequisites:

  1. PHP installation on windows
  2. Environment Setup To Run the Project
  3. Composer Software to install CakePHP

Installation:

  1. Go to your directory where XAMPP is installed and open htdocs folder. (In my case it is C:\xampp\htdocs).
  2. Open command prompt and navigate to current working directory as your current directory.
  3. Enter the command.
    mkdir project_name && cd project_name

    This command will create a project folder with project_name and set the present working directory to it.

  4. Now enter the command.
    composer create-project --prefer-dist cakephp/app:4.* app_name

    (Here 4.* refers to version number)
    This will install the CakePHP framework in the current directory.
    install-cakephp3

    install-cakephp2

    install-cakephp1

  5. Open xampp control panel and run the apache server.
  6. Now open a web browser and go to url -> http://localhost:80/project_name/app_name/
    As you can see our first app is running on the server successfully.
    installed-CakePHP
    You have successfully installed CakePHP and have created your first app with that.
