Manage (Target) Language in Multilingual Applications + A Language Selector Widget (i18n)

Created 2 years ago by c@cbaTutorials10 comments – viewed 25,733 times – ( +15 ) – version 1.1
In case of a multilingual application, one might consider it a reasonable approach to store the preferred language of the user in a session variable, and after that, every time a page is requested, to check this session variable and render the page in the indicated language. This tutorial shows a Yii-way of doing this. We implement an event handler for the onBeginRequest event; as the name of the event suggests, this event handler will be called at the beginning of each request, so its a good place to check whether a language is provided (via post, session or cookie) and set the application language accordingly. We also implement a simple Language-Selector Widget, which can render the language options as ajax-links or as a drop-down list.

Getting the Most out of APC for Yii

Created 2 years ago by Da:SourcererHow-tos10 comments – viewed 24,470 times – ( +16 ) – 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.

This config is built on an Ubuntu 11.04 server. Software is nginx, php-fpm (php5-fpm). For performance, it's recommended to run php-fpm in SOCKET mode, instead of accessing via IP:PORT. That is the method shown below.

Hey guys, I'm hoping other people will find this helpful. Today I went through the process of adding CKEditor to one of my projects, and then integrating KCFinder as the image uploader. It will be used in a CActiveForm, without the use of any crazy weird widgets. All paths are relative, using Yii functions, so this will work no matter where you install. Here it is:
