I set fatabase config file, ran index.php and everything seemed fine until i tried to do something


my error is

Missing Controller

Error: UserController could not be found.

Error: Create the class UserController below in file: app\Controller\UserController.php


And I followed

I don't have any experience working with CakePHP, but in the example you followed: 



Create users_controller.php in your app/controllers folder with following codeset.

class UsersController extends AppController
var $name='Users';
function index()




Since the error is pretty straightforward, you should check that you have named your controller right.

Let me explain better.


Just because it reads WAMP(windows,apache,mysql,php) does not mean it's wampserver



easyphp uses php version 5.4.10

cakephp is oop and mvc (advanced,must use cakephp framework, have an idea about classes and objects,create a model,view,controller structure)



wampserver uses php version 5.5.12

actually learn php coding at php.net and start out using procedural style

then move onto oop

learn a framework optionally after you feel confident enough, can then decide if actually need all the bloat and to learn a framework

cakephp is not the most preferred framework, something like zend or symphony would most likely benefit you more.


If you still want to continue with cakephp, I suggest using from cakephp's site and not some random website and code.

These actually work, I can attest to the fact because have done them all.
