Hi I am very new to YII and web server development in general so my knowledge is pretty limited;
I’ve made some changes on the yii directory and I backed it up using tar. I backed up the original directory and I backed up the changes I made into two separate tar files. The first few times I extracted it into the yii folder(root directory for yii), the changes were present and there were no issues, however I had to manually delete the additional files I had in that directory (such as additional view files) before I extracted over the directory.
To make things more convenient and avoid user error, I decided to extract over that directory using the command sudo tar -xvf admin.tar --recursive-unlink --unlink-first - C afterwards in order to delete the files that were added in the yii directory. However, I checked the browser for the site and I now receive the error “file not found”.
I tried removing the newly extracted root directory and then reextracting the backup again with out using --recursive-unlink and --unlink-first , however the browser still gives me “file not found”.
I know this is kind of a hail mary asking on here for advice how to fix this, but I’m honestly at loss and my company really needs to get this website back up and running. Does anyone have any advice on what I should do to get yii back up and running?
Thank you very much for any advice.
