Everything was working fine until I changed my OS to Ubuntu 10.04 from Debian 5.0. I had my lampp installed in /opt. Although lampp was running, zend cli could not find php. I did exactly what the Getting started Tutorial said.
- Extract zend framework
- Edit .bashrc file
- uncomment following line :
if [ -f ~/.bash_aliases ]; then
- if there is already .bash_aliases in your home folder add the following line if not then create and add the following line
alias zf = ‘path/to/zendframework/bin/zf.sh’
But when you try to check zend version “zf show version”, error pops out “44: php not found”.
The missing package is “php-cli” which is use to test php script from terminal/shell. Install “php-cli” from your package manager. After installation restart lampp (if needed). Now open terminal and check zend version, “zf show version”. You should see the version of zend.
