I’m a newbie
I using windows 7 and running XAMPP on local hard drive
I setup a test application called helloworld using the command
yiic webapp helloworld
When I run test the index file in my browser in localhost mode
I get an error: 'Access forbidden!
You don’t have permission to access the requested object. It is either read-protected or not readable by the server. ’
the tutorial I am following says I should make sure ‘assets/ and protected/runtime/ directories are writable by your web server process…’ but does not explain how to do this.
Any ideas why this is the default? I would expect that yii would just work without having to play around with permissions settings on my machine? I did standard install of xampp on my machine and put the yii folder in the htdocs folder. All pretty straightforward so why the hassle with permissions?
