If you have a good PHP foundation and understand how object works in PHP… than the first step to get to know Yii is the Definitive guide to Yii -

let me check that…

++ On the definitive guide.

After that read it again!

Get familiar with the MVC (Model View Controller) architecture. And yes you definitely need to be familiar with objects.

If you haven’t already tried it, un-comment the code that allows logging to be displayed on your web pages. (config/main.php)






					'levels'=>'error, warning',


// uncomment the following to show log messages on web pages


//				array(

//					'class'=>'CWebLogRoute',

//				),



Check out the Yii Wicki pages and read a lot of forum posts.


CAN I GET A OFFLINE VERSION of the GUIDE, here my internet goes away maximum time, because its INDIA, so can anybody help to download or get a offline guide of the YII Frame work
