Bin/cake upgrade not working

We have php 8.0.30 installed.

went into the /project/cakephp directory

# Install the upgrade tool
git clone https://github.com/cakephp/upgrade
cd upgrade
git checkout 4.x
composer install --no-dev

run bin/cake upgrade rector --rules cakephp45 src/

Get the following error: Unknown command cake upgrade. Run cake --help to get the list of commands.

Am I missing something to run upgrade?

Thank you.

I canā€™t reproduce that.

Available Commands:

App:
 - help
 - upgrade
 - upgrade file_rename
 - upgrade rector

CakePHP:
 - version

To run a command, type `cake command_name [args|options]`
To get help on a specific command, type `cake command_name --help`

Doing a minor version jump isnā€™t that hard to do manually to be honest.

You will probably save some time just fixing those errors and deprecations manually instead of relying on the automated rector rules present in the upgrade tool.

Also see https://www.youtube.com/live/GaCqzBuX5sc?si=GCs4VnaTHPmRI0O5&t=11278 for how it should look like when going from Cake 4.5 to 5.0 (should look the same for you when going from 4.4 to 4.5)

Ah, I didnā€™t realize I had to go into the upgrade folder to run the command. /headdesk that fixed the issue of the command not working.

The Upgrade Tool is its own little CakePHP Application and completely independent of your CakePHP Application.
