APACHE CHANGES


Whichever apache site you use to run the app, you will need to add a few directives so that we can have friendly urls. Adding the following will get rid of the need to specify the root index.php file. Just add it to the Directory tag in your httpd-vhosts.conf file.

<VirtualHost *:80>
  <Directory "/Users/ben/Sites/yii/test/webapp">
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride All
    Order deny,allow
    Allow from all
    Satisfy all

    IndexIgnore */*
    RewriteEngine on
    # if a directory or a file exists, use it directly
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d

    # otherwise forward it to index.php
    RewriteRule . index.php

  </Directory>

  ServerAdmin info@webmaster.com
  DocumentRoot "/Users/admin/www/yii/test/webapp"
  ServerName test.local
  ServerAlias test.local
  ErrorLog "/private/var/log/apache2/yii-test-error_log"
  CustomLog "/private/var/log/apache2/yii-test-access_log" common
</VirtualHost>

Also, in your local environment you might want to update the hosts:

sudo nano /private/etc/hosts

Should open something like this:

##
# Host Database
#
# localhost is used to configure the loopback interface
# when the system is booting.  Do not change this entry.
##
127.0.0.1       localhost
255.255.255.255 broadcasthost
::1             localhost
fe80::1%lo0     localhost

Just add the ServerAlias you used in the httpd-vhosts.conf

##Dev stuff
127.0.0.1       test.local

Now, you can access your app typing test.local in your browser.

APPLICATION INSTALLATION


  • Cloning this app from Github will result in the following: test/ README [this file] Yii-1.1.8/ [Yii framework files] webapp/ [the web application files]

Create assets and runtime directory. From within application root, do the following:

$ mkdir webapp/assets

$ chmod 777 webapp/assets

$ mkdir webapp/protected/runtime

$ chmod 777 webapp/protected/runtime

File Permissions Note: You may also have to adjust some other directory permissions so that they are writable by the Web server process. At a minimum, the webapp/assets/ and webapp/protected/runtime/ directories needs to be writable by your Web server process.

  • Create a new database and mysql user account, and configure with appropriate permissions:
CREATE DATABASE yii_base;
CREATE USER 'admin'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY '';
GRANT INSERT, SELECT, UPDATE, INDEX, DELETE, CREATE, DROP, ALTER, SHOW VIEW, CREATE VIEW ON yii_base.* TO 'admin'@'localhost';
  • CREATE DATABASE yii_base_test;
GRANT INSERT, SELECT, UPDATE, INDEX, DELETE, CREATE, DROP, ALTER, SHOW VIEW, CREATE VIEW ON yii_base_test.* TO 'admin'@'localhost';
  • Update /webapp/protected/config/main.php with the newly created mysql database name and credentials

  • Run the data migration: From the Shell

    • $ cd to /your/project/path/webapp
    • $ protected/yiic migrate
    • $ protected/yiic migrate --connectionID=testdb
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
