Yii 2 Advanced Application. One Domain Configuration
There are times when there is no need or no possibility to place the frontend and backend parts on different domains. Here are the instructions for configuration of the Apache or Nginx web servers for using multiple applications on a single domain.
You need to make some changes in the configuration files of the applications according to the bundled
The next step is the adding two rules from the bundled
advanced/frontend/web/robots.txt file to the content of your main
Apache Configuration (.htaccess or VirtualHost)
Note: If you have a shared hosting or want to use
.htaccess, simply copy the bundled
advanced/.htaccessfile into the root directory of your project.
The first thing to do is to execute the following command with enough permissions to make sure whether the
mod_rewrite module is enabled:
[ -f /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/rewrite.load ] && echo "Found" || echo "Not Found"
Not Found message appears, just execute the
a2enmod rewrite command and restart the Apache server.
Now you can use the configuration specified in the bundled
vhosts/apache.conf file to set up a virtual host. But don't forget to replace
advanced.local with an actual hostname and
/path/to/advanced with an actual path.
In this case, use only the configuration of the bundled
vhosts/nginx.conf file. If you don't like use
advanced.local as a hostname, change it. Also replace
/path/to/advanced with the actual path to your project.
