Installing Phalcon Developer Tools 1.3.1 in Ubuntu 13.10 / 14.04

Installing developer tools requires slightly more effort.
Download phalcon-developer-tools package here:  
Extract it to some convenient path.
Via git : 
        git clone git:// 
Install and create a phalcon symlink:
       cd phalcon-devtools
       sudo ./
Create a symbolink link to the phalcon.php script, replace this with the right path:

      alias phalcon="/home/sherwinrobles/phalcon-devtools/phalcon.php"
Remember to restart the console to reload the environment variables. Let’s try it out by listing available commands. 

       phalcon commands
Gives me this error:
     PHP Warning:  PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library '/usr/lib/php5/20121212/' - /usr/lib/php5/20121212/ undefined symbol: php_pdo_get_dbh_ce in Unknown on line 0
ERROR: Phalcon extension isn't installed, follow these instructions to install it:


Instead of php.ini it looks for phalcon extension in /etc/php5/cli/conf.d/ & /etc/php5/apache2/conf.d/ folder.

You need to load PDO first before Phalcon.
The ini file that loads phalcon should be prefixed to a number higher than the one PDO is. So in my system I have:

Create each and paste this: 
Find loaded php.ini with these commands. 

           sudo php -i | grep 'Configuration File'                

           Configuration File (php.ini) Path => /etc/php5/cli               
           Loaded Configuration File => /etc/php5/cli/php.ini

Remove the line "extension =" if you previously add this from the main php.ini file
Congratulations you now have Phalcon tools installed!

CakePHP: COUNT data and GROUP BY date

Goal: Count Tip Offs created per day for a month to use for graph
Problem: created field name is in datetime format: Y-m-d H:i:s
Solution: format SQL Query date: DATE_FORMAT(TipOff.created, '%Y-%m-%d')

Inside the function of controller
<?php$tipOffsMonthly=$this->TipOff->find('all', array('conditions'=>array('AND'=>array('TipOff.electric_cooperatives_id'=>AuthComponent::User('electric_cooperatives_id'), 'TipOff.created BETWEEN ? AND ?'=>array($first_day, $last_day))), 'fields'=>array("COUNT('created') as per_day", 'created'), 'group'=>array("DATE_FORMAT(TipOff.created, '%Y-%m-%d')") ));?>

CakePHP: Calling function from other controller

Import Controller of the function you want to use.

Once you imported  the controller you can call any function of this controller.

<?php//Import controller  App::import('Controller','SmsOutgoings');class ReportsController extends AppController {publicfunctionadd(){$message="Notification: New report submitted!";//Instantiation$SmsOutgoings=new SmsOutgoingsController;//Call a method from SmsOutgoingsControllerwith parameter$SmsOutgoings->notify_user($user_id,$message);}}?> Other way is by using the requestAction() function
<?phpclass ReportsController extends AppController {publicfunctionadd(){$message="Notification: New report submitted!";//Call a method from SmsOutgoingsController with parameter$this->requestAction('/sms_outgoings/notify_user',array($user_id,$message))
