I’m completely new to yii so please pardon my lack of knowledge and information.
I’m practicing web development and I got access to a friend’s website. I wanted to play with it on my localhost (using XAMPP on Windows) and found out that it uses yii. When I try to run index.php, I’m getting a page that just says:
CDbConnection failed to open the DB connection.
I think that (obviously) I have to set up the existing database of the website. I’ve done a bit of searching but I’m confused and struggling with where to start. Is there any guide that I can follow to fix the issue? I just want to get it running first.
