Installing cakephp



I see that there are the occasional threads about this, but I don’t see anything that helps me get started. I have been running a cakephp app locally and wanted to get it working on my shared dreamhost account.

  1. I created a subdomain.
  2. I created a database for that subdomain
  3. I copied over all my cake files into the subdomain folder. That is, I have a subdomain called I put into that my app and cake folders:
    app (folder)
    lib (folder containing cake)
    plugins (folder)
    vendors (folder).

The index page loads, sort of – in that it uses the default layout – so something is working. But it doesn’t load the css or js files in webroot and it doesn’t recognize the database connection.

I’d love any ideas or help, thanks!
