Yii configuration: Dynamic & User dependent

Created 7 years ago by le_top, updated 6 years ago by le_top.

It is difficult to perform user dependent theming through a general configuration in 'main.php'. This article proposes a method to do so through a Factory that dynamically generates classes to allow delayed resolution of actual user values. This means that you can refer to values that are stored in the database through the CActiveRecord before Yii is actually loaded. The values will be fetched...

Making friends' configs, DB credentials and paths with version control

Created 9 years ago by Alexander Palamarchuk, updated 8 years ago by ajsharma.

In many cases developers of one project use their own local environments for coding. There may be a common test platform and, of course, production. All these environments usually have different DB credentials and directory structures (first of all, path to YII framework directory). Another feature is debugging. It's convenient to turn it on for local environments, eventually - on the test s...

YiiBoilerplate - Setup a professional project structure in seconds

Created 9 years ago by Antonio Ramirez, updated 8 years ago by Antonio Ramirez.

Even though it looks complicated at the beginning, you will find that it is not that hard as it seems once you understand its structure. Yii's project structure wiki obviously inspired a lot of this setup, and you will find that some of the paragraphs here are taken from their wiki.

Use application on production/development environment without making changes

Created 9 years ago by ifdattic, updated 9 years ago by ifdattic.

I like programing on my localhost, however it really bugged me to make changes to index.php & config files on my production server. After combining all available wiki articles on this topic and some trial and error this is what I use for my applications so I could just upload it to production server and it will work without any changes.

The directory structure of the Yii project site

Created 10 years ago by qiang, updated 8 years ago by Yang He.

In this article, we describe the directory structure used by yiiframework.com - the official Yii framework website. While this structure may look overly complicated for small projects or may not be optimal in some sense, we believe it is appropriate for medium or large projects in a team development environment. In fact, we have successfully used the similar structure in some other big projects.

Created 10 years ago by Steve Friedl, updated 10 years ago by Steve Friedl.

Yii's by-default directory organization works well enough, but there are several steps one can take that improve the security and serviceability of the system, especially in the context of multiple Yii projects on the same machine (including multiple versions of the same project).

"Why do I get a 403 error when trying to use Gii?"

Created 10 years ago by Steve Friedl, updated 10 years ago by Steve Friedl.

After enabling the Gii module in your protected/config/main.php file and then try to use it with http://example.com/index.php?r=gii, you get an error: ~~~ Error 403 You are not allowed to access this page. ~~~ This is almost certainly caused by the IP filtering mechanism that Gii uses to protect your system from outsiders - by default it allows localhost only (both IPv4 and IPv6), and r...

Manage application configuration in different modes

Created 12 years ago by qiang, updated 9 years ago by 张 迪.

Application configuration determines how an Yii application should behave, because it is the only parameter passed in the entry script. An application, on the other hand, needs to behave differently under different circumstances. For example, an application may need different configurations when running in production mode, development mode and testing mode; In a team development environment, each...
