How to build a cakePHP environment on AWS

Medium 4053393372

Good evening, this is Bono.

This is a summary of what we did when we built a website on AWS, which was created using cakePHP on localhost.

Basically, you can copy and paste.

If you had created an application in a folder like the following,


Copy the entire cake_app directory.

scp -i ~/.ssh/XXX -r cake_app ec2-user@XX.XX.XX.XX:

First, basic httpd.conf

Set RootDirectory, ServerRoot in this.

Location: /var/www/html/hoge

Then a little setup.

cakePHP uses mod_rewrite functionality, which converts URLs.
Therefore, the phrase RewriteBase must be added in the .htaccess file.

The following site was helpful.
As a reminder, there are three .htaccess files, and each must have this description appropriately.

Failure to do so will result in an Internal Server Error.

  • /var/www/html/hoge/.htaccess : /
  • /var/www/html/hoge/app/.htaccess : /app
  • /var/www/html/hoge/app/webroot/ : /app/webroot

chmod 777
