I prefer Git to Subversion and have created a git-svn clone of the original repo. As changes are made to the SVN repo, I plan to merge and publish them here.


There are two branches included in this repository. The Master branch is simply a clone of the main SVN repo. The Custom branch contains all of the changes that I make to the software. Currently, most of my projects are developed in CakePHP, I have made changes to the configuration files to settings, etc. from a CakePHP installation.

Custom Branch Configuration

I have altered the codebase so that I can place the ajaxplorer repo in the CakePHP Vendors directory. This will work in both the app/Vendors and vendors directories.

This custom configuration assumes a Users controller with login and logout functions.


  1. Clone this repository into the Vendors directory of your CakePHP application.
  2. Create a symbolic link in your application's webroot directory pointing to the src folder in the repo.
    • ln -s ../Vendors/ajaxplorer/core/src ajaxplorer


There are many ways to implement AjaxPlorer with CakePHP. There are many custom variables that can go into the authentication processes. The instructions below are a simple guide to get started.

If you are having trouble, then please do not create an issue request as the problem is almost certainly with your configuration and not an issue with this app. If you need assistance with AjaxPlorer or CakePHP, then please use the references that those tools provide.

  1. Edit AjaxPlorer's Auth.remote plugin glueCode with a secret specific to your installation.
    • If you followed the instructions above, you can file this file in webroot/ajaxplorer/plugins/auth.remote/glueCode.php.
  2. Edit your applications bootstrap.php file with the secret variable.
    • Configure::write('Ajaxplorer.secret', 'secretFromGlueCode');
  3. Integrate Ajaxplorer remote code with CakePHP.
    • There are no easy answers to how to approach this step. You will have to reference the CakePHP and AjaxPlorer API's to figure out the integration based on how you have built your authentication system.
    • I have created an AjaxPlorer to CakePHP bridge component for CakePHP that can assist with the authentication. You can download it from it's Github Repo.
      • There are instructions with the repository on how to use this component. If you have a simple authentication mechanism, then you can simply add $this->Ajaxplorer->login($user); to your login function and your user will be logged in to both CakePHP and AjaxPlorer simultaneously.
