I am not sure what you mean by initialize. It is just a framework. The libraries are in the "cake" folder. Project files (MVC structure) and configuration files all go under "app". Look in ~/app/config/ for settings. You should be able to just drop the whole structure in the web root and open your browser. Make sure that the 3 .htaccess files exist (~/.htaccess, ~/app/.htaccess, ~/app/webroot/.htaccess) and that your webserver allows rewriting and overriding.

Daniel was correct. ~/app/tmp/

See the database.php file in ~/app/config/
