CakePHP SQL Query

To write an SQL query in CakePHP, you can use the find() method provided by the CakePHP ORM (Object-Relational Mapping) system. The find() method allows you to retrieve data from the database using different query conditions and options.

Here's an example of how to write a basic SQL query in CakePHP:

$query = $this->ModelName->find('all', [
    'conditions' => [
        'field_name' => 'value',
        // add more conditions if needed
    'order' => [
        'field_name' => 'ASC',
        // add more fields for sorting if needed
    'limit' => 10,
    'offset' => 0,

In the example above: - ModelName should be replaced with the actual name of the model you want to query. - 'all' specifies that you want to retrieve all records. You can use other options like 'first' or 'list' depending on your requirements. - 'conditions' allows you to specify the conditions for filtering the records. Replace 'field_name' with the actual field name and 'value' with the desired value. - 'order' allows you to specify the sorting order of the records. Replace 'field_name' with the actual field name and 'ASC' or 'DESC' with the desired sorting order. - 'limit' and 'offset' are optional and can be used for pagination purposes.

Please note that this is just a basic example, and you can customize the query according to your specific needs. For more advanced queries, you can refer to the CakePHP documentation
