New Field in User table

Afternoon All,

So i am very new to PHP and Yii etc, i have working with VBA and SQL before but again not very much.

I have the Yii2 advanced Framework and have added a field to the User table.

I thought i had added to the relevent places but i am getting an error

i am not 100% sure what part of the code you would like to see as it passes through 2 or 3 models.

But let me know and i will edit and paste in.

Appreciate any help in advanced.

First of all, restart your PHP (or webserver) to make sure schema is not cached.

Then please show your model which errors i.e. SignupForm.

So i have restart Apache which in my understanding restarts PHP?

        if ($this->scenario === 'rna')




        // if user is saved and role is assigned return user object

        return $user->save() && RbacHelper::assignRole($user->getId()) ? $user : null;



     * Sends email to registered user with account activation link.


     * @param  object $user Registered user.

     * @return bool         Whether the message has been sent successfully.


    public function sendAccountActivationEmail($user)


        return Yii::$app->mailer->compose('accountActivationToken', ['user' => $user])

            ->setFrom([Yii::$app->params['supportEmail'] => Yii::$app->name . ' robot'])


            ->setSubject('Account activation for ' . Yii::$app->name)




Note the case. You have Customer_ID, customer_ID, customer_id.
