When trying to run the Cake 2.x Console you get the following error

./Console/cake: line 31: exec: php: not found


PHP installed in non-standard path


Add the the path to your php binary to the the path to the top of your cake ./Console/cake script.

In the example below /usr/local/php5/bin should be edited to match the location of the PHP cli utility on your system

export PATH=/usr/local/php5/bin:$PATH
