Project Status

Deploy CakePHP applications with Capistrano v3.*

IMPORTANT: Tested with CakePHP 3 thus far, but should work for CakePHP 2 that uses composer.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'capistrano', '~> 3.0.0'
gem 'capcake', '~> 3.0.0'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install capcake

At this point, you can install capistrano:

$ cap install

This will create the required files in your ROOT/config directory

At any time, for help:

$ cap -T


Add .capistrano to your .gitignore:

echo .capistrano/* >> .gitignore


Require the module in your Capfile:

require 'capistrano/cakephp'

Some extras:

require 'capistrano/cakephp/assets'
require 'capistrano/cakephp/migrations'


The gem makes the following configuration variables available (shown with defaults)

set :cakephp_roles, :all
set :cakephp_flags, ''
set :cakephp_user, 'www-data'


  1. Fork it
  2. Create your feature branch (git checkout -b my-new-feature)
  3. Commit your changes (git commit -am 'Add some feature')
  4. Push to the branch (git push origin my-new-feature)
  5. Create new Pull Request
