I am running CiviCRM on Mac OSX 10.11.3, using the latest Bitnami CiviCRM/Drupal stack (bitnami-civicrm-4.6.11-0-osx-x86_64). I have civix-15.04.1 installed as instructed (under $HOME/civix), and have it added to the path. Likewise I have updated the PATH to use the version of PHP provided by the stack.
While I can use civix successfully to run commands like:
$ civix generate:module
when I try and run the following command (as a pre-req to generating custom-xml):
$ civix civicrm:ping
I get no output whatsoever (ie silent failure).
I am running the command from within the web root.
Anyone experienced this before? Any pointers greatly appreciated.
