Join Drew Falkman for an in-depth discussion in this video CakePHP concepts and features, part of MVC Frameworks for Building PHP Web Applications (2015).
- While CakePHP was built upon many of…the time savings aspects of Ruby On Rail coding,…its evolved into its own type of framework.…One that has its own specific…conventions and time saving benefits.…There are basically two ways…to get started with CakePHP,…and it depends on what version you're using.…As of the recording of this course,…2.6.1 is currently the latest stable version.…There is also a version 3.0, but it's…not production ready yet.…
If you're going to use the two version of Cake,…it requires the old method of extracting and copying.…Once you get into 2.6, there is some composer support…if you want to install it that way, you can,…however it's not built in, in the same way…that it will be in 3.0.…Once you get it downloaded and installed,…you can use the console to do all the…configuration that you need to.…CakePHP is different from most of the other frameworks.…There's a lot you can do from the console.…
It makes maintenance, testing, and development a lot easier.…The model will map directly to the database,…

Q: When setting up Composer on my Windows machine, I'm asked to specify where php.exe is located. Where can I find it?
Q: Why doesn't my folder structure in Laravel match what's on screen?
A: Version 5 of Laravel was released after the recording of this course. The core information in this course is still valid, but the Laravel's main files have been reorganized. For more details on how this reorganization has changed the structure of Laravel files, please see https://mattstauffer.co/
Q: Why isn't mcrypt prepped for PHP when I run the phpize command?
A: If you're having trouble setting up mcrypt, you may need to change the directory from which you run the phpize command. You'll want to navigate to the /ext/mcrypt/ folder within the folder for the version of PHP that you're running.
