Invalid redirection problem


I’m very new to Yii.

I’m starting a new project with backend and frontend. I found andy_s cookbook reciept “Organize directories for applications with front-end and back-end using WebApplicationEnd behavior”, I thing it is great idea, and project structure suits my application the best.

I’ve done everything like in this reciept, but I’m having problem with redirection to login page. When I try to get to backend and application should redirect me to login page, the web browser throws an error “Invalid redirection”.

Here is my admin config file:

return CMap::mergeArray(



		'components' => array(


				// enable cookie-based authentication

				'allowAutoLogin' => true,

				'loginUrl' => array('admin/login'),


			'urlManager' => array(

				'urlFormat' => 'path',

				'showScriptName' => false,

				'rules' => array(








What could be wrong?

"admin/login" points to AdminController/actionLogin. I think you need "site/login" instead, if actionLogin belongs to SiteController.

The problem was I had ‘urlManager’ section in all free config files. It should be only in backend and frontend ones.

Is it possible to use gii with this direcotry structure?

I haven’t tried that. Why not? :)
