cakephp apache config


To configure a CakePHP application to run on Apache, you will need to create an .htaccess file in the application’s root directory and configure your Apache web server to use this file.

Here is an example of an .htaccess file that you can use with a CakePHP application:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
  RewriteEngine on
  RewriteRule    ^$ app/webroot/    [L]
  RewriteRule    (.*) app/webroot/$1 [L]

This .htaccess file tells Apache to redirect all requests to the app/webroot directory, where the application’s front-end files are stored.

You will also need to make sure that the mod_rewrite module is enabled in your Apache configuration. You can check if the module is enabled by running the following command:

apachectl -M

If the mod_rewrite module is not listed, you will need to enable it by adding the following line to your Apache configuration file (usually /etc/apache2/httpd.conf):

LoadModule rewrite_module libexec/apache2/

After you have created the .htaccess file and enabled the mod_rewrite module, you should be able to access your CakePHP application through Apache.

Note: These are just the basic steps for configuring a CakePHP application to run on Apache. There are many additional configuration options available, depending on your specific needs.
