  1. I am using WAMP and I tried out your solution and it gave me the following error any ideas about it?

    Junaid Arif

    Fatal error: Cannot access empty property in c:\wamp\www\mysite\cake\console\libs\bake.php on line 52

    • I’ve tried it in wampserver 2.0 which works fine for me. From command promt, just follow the steps bellow

      1. Go to command promt

      C:\Documents and Settings\Abu Musa>cd\

      2. Change your location to php path

      C:\>cd C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.2.9-2

      3 Start bake

      C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.2.9-2>php.exe C:/wamp/www/cakephp/cake/console/cake.php bake

      Then you will see the following screen if you are successfull.

      Welcome to CakePHP v1.2.1.8004 Console
      App : app
      Path: C:/wamp/www/cakephp/app
      Interactive Bake Shell
      [D]atabase Configuration
      What would you like to Bake? (D/M/V/C/P/Q)

      That’s it.

  2. Thanks a lot for making this blog post. I’m reading a book that totally left us windows guys in the dark.

    I got this error:

    PHP.exe Unable to locate component
    This application has failed to start because php_mbstring.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem

    But once you hit ok to acknowledge the error it continues loading and bring you to the Interactive Bake Shell.

  3. I tried this out and now every time I run cake bake it asks if I want to copy a template over , every single time. Is there any way to get rid of this?
