Donloaded Yii, my server is xampp and works fine, after install yii at C:Xampp/htdocs under the name of "yii", went to cmd to create a webapp… by writing
That works fine, it retrieves this same line:
then i write:
[color="#FF0000"]yiic webapp …\testdrive
then: Nothing, it gives me an error message: system cant find specific route[/color]
I already try everything, changed \ to / changed that line for many others i found on internet for similar problem reports, i already checked my control panel "path" and added the php route, every option i could find on internet… still cant create an app, please help!
I am at the same stage as the original poster, just making the move from Yii 1 to Yii 2. I managed to get the basic application going following the installation guide, but I’m still perplexed about what Composer is. Is it involved in anything other than creating a project?
Composer - it’s a convenient packages manager. It is means you should not download fresh version of projects packages from the different web resources, and you will be sure that all who use you project in they own environmental has exactly set of packages (and their version) as yours.
A think, what I’m trying to bring to you is - you should use composer to:
Download and install extensions to the your project (or globally)
Update all extensions just typing ‘composer update’ in you console.
