Proposed folder structure not working


I’m relatively new to Yii. I’ve managed to get a sample application up and running but as I am now moving to a real project, I would like to use the following folder structure for increased security:

[Server root (/)]

- yii

-- framework

-- requirements

[Server htdocs]

- myapp

-- public

--- assets

--- css

--- images

--- themes

--- index.php

-- private

--- protected

All is fine when I leave the protected folder inside the public folder but I don’t want to do this. The only way I can get it to work in my proposed structure is if I create a symlink inside the public folder pointing to the actual folder in the private folder. If I reference it directly in the private folder it just gives me a blank page upon app load.

I’ve double checked my configuration paths and all are fine.

Any help is appreciated.
