Getting to Understand Hierarchical RBAC Scheme

Created 4 years ago by daemonsTutorials15 comments – viewed 78,222 times – ( +60 ) – version 1.1
Authentication and Authorization is a good tutorial. Among other topics, it describes basic aspects of Yii's RBAC implementation. But however hard I read the tutorial, I couldn't understand how exactly the hierarchy works. I found how to define authorization hierarchy, how business rules are evaluated, how to configure authManager, but almost nothing about how I should build my hierarchy, in what sequence its nodes are checked, when the checking process stops and what would be the checking result.

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

Created 5 months ago by raminiousHow-tos11 comments – viewed 31,477 times – ( +11 ) – 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)
