Deploying an advanced project template to shared hosting is a bit trickier than a basic one because it has two webroots,
which shared hosting webservers don't support. We will need to adjust the directory structure so frontend URL will be
http://site.local and backend URL will be
First of all we need a webroot directory. Create a new directory and name it to match your hosting webroot name,
public_html or the like. Then create the
following structure where
www is the hosting webroot directory you just created:
www admin backend common console environments frontend ...
www will be our frontend directory so move the contents of
frontend/web into it. Move the contents of
www/admin. In each case you will need to adjust the paths in
Originally the backend and frontend are intended to run at different domains. When we’re moving it all to the same domain
the frontend and backend will be sharing the same cookies, creating a clash. It order to fix it, adjust backend application config
backend/config/main.php as follows:
'components' => [ 'request' => [ 'csrfParam' => '_csrf-backend', 'csrfCookie' => [ 'httpOnly' => true, 'path' => '/admin', ], ], 'user' => [ 'identityClass' => 'common\models\User', 'enableAutoLogin' => true, 'identityCookie' => [ 'name' => '_identity-backend', 'path' => '/admin', 'httpOnly' => true, ], ], 'session' => [ // this is the name of the session cookie used for login on the backend 'name' => 'advanced-backend', 'cookieParams' => [ 'path' => '/admin', ], ], ],
