I have finished developement on a Yii site locally and am ready to take it to the remote host. (Yeah, and thank you very much, I couldn’t have done it without you!)
I have researched the topic and found that one of the first steps is to ‘install Yii on the host’. I am under the impression that installing is different than uploading the framework from my local server. If someone would like to elaborate on the differences and advantages, please do!
My main question is this; Is there a way to install the Yii framework on the remote host without having shell access?
When I was reviewing Pear packages I found documentation for this subject, so I was wondering if this was an option to consider as far as Yii is concerned, and if so, how does it work in the Yii case? Is there documentation which I am just not finding?
Here is the pear documentation for reference if someone is interested…
yiic is used to create the initial skeleton of the webapp… you already did that as you have a complete project… so you only need to upload everything to the server
About the framework you only need the “framework” folder… all below that folder cannot be accessed from the web user as it’s prevented with the .htaccess file (deny from all)… so leaving gii is not a problem… but you need to disable it in your config/main.php
