We’re trying to use EngineYard but finding that with pulling the code base from Github repo, it needs the core framework folder included in the repo. This is wrong on many levels and we don’t want this config maintenance nightmare.
Yii is not optimized nor recommended for cloud hosting
EngineYard does not fully support Yii hosting
If anyone has a different approach for hosting Yii in the cloud, please share it.
We looked into Amazon EC2 but ran into the same issue as chrismol with EngineYard - as the environment instance is built from a single git repo it appeared the only way was to include the whole Yii core framework in the repo which was a non-starter for us.
Be very interested to learn of any successful experiences with Yii in the cloud but for the moment it looks like traditional old school hosting for Yii applications is the only practical option.
