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.

Final frontend URL: http://advanced.local
Final backend URL: http://advanced.local/admin


You need to make some changes in the configuration files of the applications according to the bundled advanced/frontend/config/main.php and advanced/backend/config/main.php files.

The next step is the adding two rules from the bundled advanced/frontend/web/robots.txt file to the content of your main robots.txt file.

Apache Configuration (.htaccess or VirtualHost)

Note: If you have a shared hosting or want to use .htaccess, simply copy the bundled advanced/.htaccess file 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"

If the 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.

Nginx Configuration

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.
