[Guide] How to actually separate Frontend (User) and Backend (Admin) on Yii2 Advanced

Created about a year ago by Wade ShulerHow-tos2 comments – viewed 36,478 times – ( +16 / -1 ) – version 2.0
I am writing this guide because I struggled to find a resource that included ALL of the necessary steps to completely separate the frontend from the backend. After reading guides like Configuring different sessions for backend and frontend in yii-advanced-app and yii2 configuring different sessions for backend and frontend in yii advanced application template, there are still steps missing. It is funny how the 2nd one says it is an extension of the first one's article. So I guess, my wiki guide here is yet a 3rd and more complete extension of both of them. I also found a few StackOverflow questions and blog posts regarding this topic. None of them fully worked, and must be missing some magic sauce!

Getting the Most out of APC for Yii

Created 4 years ago by Da:SourcererHow-tos10 comments – viewed 35,911 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. Installing and enabling APC already yields a significant performance benefit. However, APC is not a black box that will magically change all for the better. More over it is important to understand that APC needs memory to operate.

Single table inheritance

Created 5 years ago by samdarkHow-tos8 comments – viewed 33,519 times – ( +41 ) – version 1.1
Relational databases do not support inheritance so if we need to represent it, we have to somehow store meta info while keeping performance by minimizing JOINs. One way to solve this problem is using single table inheritance. All fields for the whole class tree are stored in a single table. Class name is stored in the type field of the same table.
