Updated 4 years ago by Steve FriedlHow-tos1 comment – viewed 8,937 times – ( +3 ) – version 1.1
One can control the detail of a web application in the webroot/index.php file by manipulating the values of YII_DEBUG and YII_TRACE_LEVEL, but these don't appear to be used by console applications.

Yii makes it really easy for all to use their already made objects that automate everything we do. It provides also great power of flexibility and styling but hey, we programmers tend to complicate our lives and push a little more the power of our tools.

Directory independent extensions

Updated 4 years ago by GOshaTips3 comments – viewed 8,889 times – ( +15 / -1 ) – version 1.1
