Installing cake php on xampp#1
I(ve got xampp installed on my laptop runing XP, and it(s been running without any problems for ages.

I(ve just tried installing cakephp, and have altered the database config and enabled mod_rewrite.

But now I get the following on the welcome page:


Your tmp directory is writable.

The FileEngine is being used for
caching. To change the config edit
APP/config/core.php

Your database configuration file is
present.

Cake is NOT able to connect to the
database.


I have no idea why it(s not connecting to the database. Has anyone else ever come across this problem and have any idea how to resolve it?

*edit Advice on configuring datalogging in cake would be a great help too

Re: Installing cake php on xampp#3
Have you configured the error log for cakephp? I would look in there first for clues.

Re: Installing cake php on xampp#4
I'm not sure how to do this I'm afraid. I found configure.php and cake_log.php, but the documentation doesn't really help much when it comes to altering values. As far as I can see the only docs on the cake website relate to logging for your app, not the core cakephp framework.

Re: Installing cake php on xampp#5
First, edit ~/app/config/core.php and raise debug to 2, this will give you more detailed error reporting.Second, triple check your ~/app/config/database.php and be 110% sure there is no typo in there. If there is no typo, try connecting with that same data with a non-cake script.If that fails too, you might want to check Apache and MySQL log files, or even your firewall if you have one.

Re: Installing cake php on xampp#6
good tip to try the connection data outside cake. Was a convoluted process, but eventually it got me to the bottom of the problem

Re: Installing cake php on xampp#8
Have you checked if your database user name and password is correct?Also ensure that your database does exist. The following is the default username and password (actually, no password) XAMPP uses:var $default = array((driver( => (mysql(,(persistent( => false,(host( => (localhost(,(login( => (root(,(password( => ((,(database( => (db_name(,(prefix( => ((,);

Re: Installing cake php on xampp#9
When using phpmyadmin to add a user for phpcake to connect with I had to set the host to localhost instead of %.
