Unable to use phalcon dev tools

I am running Ubuntu 14.04 64bit via Vagrant and this is what I get


As you can see I am in root mode but the command phalcon is not working.

I have noticed that: [email protected]:/var/www# chmod ugo+x /usr/bin/phalcon

cause this: chmod: cannot operate on dangling symlink '/usr/bin/phalcon'

So probably that's the problem. Any idea why I cannot use phalcon command?

Btw. the manual seems to be not complete e.g. there is nothing about creating CLI php5 ini file for phalcon just for apache2.


when creating symbolic links use full path.

ln -s /var/www/myproject/vendor/phalcon-devtools/phlaocn.php /usr/bin/phalcon

perhaps thats the issue ?
