I am creating a site for my printing business with yii, php, and mysql. I have it working on localhost, but I’m anxious because I’ve never put any thing on the web before. Besides user authorization and user input security, are there any details I should check for before uploading?
You may want to read this wiki: http://www.yiiframework.com/wiki/275/how-to-write-secure-yii-applications/
I’d also say, keep parallel config files for localhost and the server (including db name, and user/pwd), and also an additional dev/test env. where you would test any further improvement before rolling them out.
Thanks for the link. I have a well worn coffee stained print out of it from when I started, I certainly recommend it.
