Does my web hosting service has to install YII


I am trying to develop an application using Yii.

Does my web hosting service provider need to install Yii framework on it’s server, in order for my Yii based application to work?



No, just upload the Yii framework e.g to yoursite/yii (or at least the framework and requirements subdirs without changing their relative position). Navigate your browser to the yoursite/yii/requirements and verify that the minimum requirements are satisfied. Next, you may want to try the blog demo (navigate to yoursite/yii/demos/blog).
