Cannot approach the cakephp console


Hi guys,

I have made a cronjob, but it wont run, after some research i find out that my red hat does not see the cake console file.

When i type the command in the terminal i get the following:
root@mydomain:/var/www/domains/mydomain/cake/console# cake
-bash: cake: command not found

I searched here and on google what the problem could be and it seems that the $PATH is not set like it should, but i dont know how to fix it.

When i am in the console directory and echo $PATH, i get following:
/usr/kerberos/sbin:/usr/kerberos/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin

Is there something wrong with the path?

Can someone please help, i am already 5 hours busy with trying to fix this.

You could export PATH variable and include the cake command location there.
like

export PATH=$PATH:/path/to/cake

Chaitanya,

Thank you for the quick answer!

So if i run this code:
export PATH=$PATH:/var/www/domains/mydomain/cake/console

It will save the path, and i could run it from the console and it will work from the cronjob as well?

Are you sure cake is a command? Can you give more information? From the location, I suppose it has something do with your website.

Cake is a command. And is needed to run cronjobs. Cake has two runable files in that directory: cake.bat(for windows) and cake(for linux).

From the cronjob i need to run this line:
/var/www/domains/mydomain/cake/console/cake cronjobs

I am now a couple of days trying to fix this

I fixed it by giving rights to the cake file.

chmod 777 cake

No. Do not make it world writable. chmod +x is better way of making it executable.
