I’m trying to contribute to Yii and have been following this page however have encountered a problem I can’t get past.
I have my own existing installation of Yii where I have tested my code but am also trying to set up an environment going by the pages instructions, but when I get to step 3 and run:
php build/build dev/app basic
I get the error that there is no composer.json present, so I created one based off of the composer file within the composer.json found within the basic app on GitHub.
Then I tried again and then got this error:
PHP Warning 'yii\base\ErrorException' with message 'symlink(): Cannot create sym link, error code(1314)'
I have looked around for solutions but the few things I found haven’t helped, such as starting Xampp in Administrator mode.
The above is by running the command in CMD, I have also tried in Git Bash but with that I get the error:
Unknown command "dev\app".
FYI I am on Windows 7 so symlink should be supported.
