Sometimes it would be nice if we could run yiic from an action, for example a migrate database button in our admin panel. Or because you are on a host which doesn't have shell access. Or maybe you are not allowed run popen or exec.

Getting the Most out of APC for Yii

Created 4 years ago by Da:SourcererHow-tos10 comments – viewed 35,928 times – ( +17 ) – version 1.1
The Advanced PHP Cache is a PHP extension which primarily serves as an opcode cache for PHP. The basic idea is to save PHP from re-evaluating the PHP code to intermediate bytecode on each request.

How to hide /frontend/web in url addresses on apache

Created about a year ago by raminiousHow-tos14 comments – viewed 67,118 times – ( +16 ) – version 2.0
There is an issue on Yii2 to redirecting / urls to /frontend/web. In other words we need a way to hidden /frontend/web from addresses. We will do this without changing Apache configuration and creating virtual host or setting document root (It's good for share hostings that we have not access to apache.conf)
