Installing CakePHP on Ubuntu 20.04

CakePHP is a popular open-source web framework written in PHP, which follows the Model-View-Controller (MVC) software architectural pattern. It provides an elegant and structured way of developing web applications, making it easier to build and maintain complex web projects.

sudo apt update
sudo apt install apache2
sudo a2enmod rewrite
sudo apt install php libapache2-mod-php php-mysql php-mbstring

composer create-project --prefer-dist cakephp/app project-name

Replace "project-name" with the desired name for your project.

sudo chown -R www-data:www-data project-name
sudo nano /etc/apache2/sites-available/project-name.conf
