See my article for unit testing: nikiink.wordpress.com/2012/03/19/yii-console-log-with-unit-testing/. You should create a new class that extends CLogRoute and logging to the console (using echo) in the processLogs method.

I paste my article:

Yii Console Log with Unit Testing

Posted on 19 marzo 2012

  1. install phpunit correctly

pear install phpunit/PHPUnit

pear install phpunit/PHPUnit_Selenium

  1. create the class CConsoleLogRoute in the components directory in the file CConsoleLogRoute.php with this code:


class CConsoleLogRoute extends CLogRoute {

protected function processLogs($logs)


foreach($logs as $log) {

echo $this->formatLogMessage($log[0],$log[1],$log[2],$log[3]);




  1. configure YII to log when unit testing:

3a. add the log key in the components array in protected/config/test.php






‘levels’=>’error, warning, info, trace’,




3b. add some lines in protected/tests/bootstrap.php, the modified file should be this: (added the lines with YII_DEBUG, YII_TRACE_LEVEL, autoFlush and autoDump)


// change the following paths if necessary



defined(‘YII_DEBUG’) or define(‘YII_DEBUG’,true);

defined(‘YII_TRACE_LEVEL’) or define(‘YII_TRACE_LEVEL’, 0);




Yii::getLogger()->autoFlush = 1;

Yii::getLogger()->autoDump = true;
