What other code do you have running in this application?

A search of the most recent CakePHP repo does not yield any results on that particular error message.  Additionally, since CakePHP added .env support as an option for developers, I would find it very odd for Cake to present a fatal error if it found something it didn't like.  I'm guessing this is somewhere in the application code.

The code was obtained here.

I did not find any references to your error in that source either.  However, I did notice in the error text that your .env file should be one level up from the config directory.

I downloaded the project again and run a composer update
A file ".env.example" went in the project - outside \config\ , I renamed it to ".env."  and complete some DB informations.
The error desapeared.
