I am still learning about yii2.
One thing that I cannot understand is, in yii1, usually I just copy from old project when making a new project. remove unnecessary files and start the development.
in yii2, I cannot do so.
Copy from old project the whole directory
change the database connection on main-local.php
run php init
But why, I still got connection to old database?
Can someone help?
From your question, it appears that you are using the advanced template.
When you run init: Do you choose ‘Production’ or ‘Development’?
Do you overwtite the config files?
What is in your ‘environment’ directory config files?
From another of my post:
Maybe this will help.
yes, to be complete, I am using kartik practical a which based on kartik practical which is based on advanced template.
I run init and choose development.
I do not override config files, since I did it manually before running php init.
I never touch environment folder
