Installing CakePHP on Ubuntu 18.04

CakePHP is a free, open-source PHP framework that follows the model-view-controller (MVC) software architectural pattern. It provides a structured and efficient way to build web applications, making development faster and easier. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of installing CakePHP on Ubuntu 18.04.

  1. Update System Packages
  2. Open a terminal and enter the following commands to ensure that your system is up to date.
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt upgrade
  3. Install Apache and PHP
  4. To run CakePHP, you need to have Apache web server and PHP installed on your system. Install them by running the following command.
    sudo apt install apache2 php
  5. Install Composer
  6. Composer is a dependency management tool for PHP that allows you to easily install and manage dependencies required by your application. To install Composer, run the following command.
    sudo apt install composer
  7. Create a New CakePHP Application
  8. Change to the Apache document root directory and create a new CakePHP application using Composer. Replace "myapp" with the desired name of your application.
    cd /var/www/html
    composer create-project --prefer-dist cakephp/app myapp
  9. Configure Apache
  10. Open the virtual host configuration file for the default site in a text editor.
    sudo nano /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf
    Add the following lines within the `VirtualHost` tags, replacing "/var/www/html" with the path to the directory where you created your CakePHP application.
    DocumentRoot /var/www/html/myapp/webroot
        Options FollowSymlinks
        AllowOverride All
        Require all granted
    Save the file and exit the text editor.
  11. Enable the Mod Rewrite Module
  12. Enable the Apache `mod_rewrite` module that allows CakePHP to use clean URLs.
    sudo a2enmod rewrite
  13. Restart Apache
  14. To apply the changes, restart the Apache web server.
    sudo systemctl restart apache2
  15. Complete Installation
  16. Open a web browser and navigate to `http://localhost/myapp`. You should see the CakePHP default page, indicating that the installation was successful.

Congratulations! You have successfully installed CakePHP on Ubuntu 18.04. Now you can start developing your web application using CakePHP's powerful features and conventions.
