REQUIREMENTS

The minimum requirement by this application template that your Web server supports PHP 5.4.0.

INSTALLATION

Install from an Archive File

Extract the archive file downloaded from yiiframework.com to a directory named basic that is directly under the Web root.

You can then access the application through the following URL:

http://localhost/basic/web/

Install via Composer

If you do not have Composer, you may install it by following the instructions at getcomposer.org.

You can then install this application template using the following command:

php composer.phar global require "fxp/composer-asset-plugin:1.0.0-beta4"
php composer.phar create-project --prefer-dist --stability=dev tilhom/hello-yii2 basic

Now you should be able to access the application through the following URL, assuming basic is the directory directly under the Web root.

http://localhost/basic/web/

CONFIGURATION

Database

Edit the file config/db.php with real data, for example:

return [
    'class' => 'yii\db\Connection',
    'dsn' => 'mysql:host=localhost;dbname=yii2basic',
    'username' => 'root',
    'password' => '1234',
    'charset' => 'utf8',
];

NOTE: Yii won't create the database for you, this has to be done manually before you can access it.

Also check and edit the other files in the config/ directory to customize your application.
