Are you getting from Cake bake "Database connection Mysql is missing, or could not be created" on your Mac using Mamp?

I will tell you why. It`s because apparently Mac already comes with a PHP command line interpreter. So the PHP you are calling are not the same from Mamp.

Take a look below where I`m on the root folder from my Cake PHP application.
system2:regroup ritter$ ./lib/Cake/Console/cake bake

How to deal with it? Simple: Call the PHP you want, directly, and everything will go smoothly. Have fun codding!

Computers and science as a way to live

As you may know, I`m a programmer, I work most in web projects, but not only. This area is a mess! Each day you have to recycle what you know in many ways. The thing is, a knowledge that change so often can`t afford wait to be translated to Portuguese for instance, at that time, the known will be already deprecated. English to me is a functional requirement. I can`t imagine my daily life without it. I have been studding English for serious since 2009. In this section you can see what I`m working on. Have fun as I do.
