Installation of Yii mainly involves the following two steps:
Tip: Yii does not need to be installed under a Web-accessible directory. A Yii application has one entry script which is usually the only file that needs to be exposed to Web users. Other PHP scripts, including those from Yii, should be protected from Web access; otherwise they might be exploited by hackers.
After installing Yii, you may want to verify that your server satisfies Yii's requirements. You can do so by accessing the requirement checker script via the following URL in a Web browser:
Yii requires PHP 5.1, so the server must have PHP 5.1 or above installed and available to the web server. Yii has been tested with Apache HTTP server on Windows and Linux. It may also run on other Web servers and platforms, provided PHP 5.1 is supported.

Edit it on github !

If you get this error on OS X using MAMP then try the tar.gz version of the download instead of the zip.
Don't use 777
Using the permissions of 777 is a very bad idea. It means that anyone can write content to the files. This can lead very easily to arbitrary code getting written to the file and executed every time the script is accessed.
Do a chmod 755 instead. This gives the everyone read and execute permissions, but only the owner write permissions.
Correct syntax would be:
The download and where to place the folders
The Yii framework is downloaded as a .tar or .zip file, which contains 3 folders (demos, requirements, framework) and some instructions in plain text files. The demos and requirements folders will need to be placed into a Web-accessible directory so that they can be accessed in your browser. The framework folder can be placed securely elsewhere, so long as the application's entry script php file contains the correct path to yii.php
