Okay, I realized this long ago but it annoys me that every time I just forget this. Sometime, when debugging CakePHP, the most direct method is to simply log an error. It’s like ‘trace’ in Actionscript or just a println() in Java. Anyway, here it is:
$this->log("Log anything here.");
This can be called from the controller.
And can find the log here:
Maybe someone who drops by may just find this useful too.
