I like the structure of yii2-advanced, the seperation of frontend/backend/common and such. But problem is that in order to correctly deploy it, you need specific configuration of the server. And I have only shared hosting for now. I tried “yii2-practical” app, but there are still doubts about it’s structure. I wanted to ask if the idea I have is very stupid or not.
Or should I stick with basic template and make backend as a module, like good old Yii1 style? Or just use htaccess to route backend/* to backend? But i would like not to have vendors and other folders in reachable location.
I would recommend you to use vps for hosting your Yii app. It is much better than shared hosting. You will get better performance and security because of dedicated server. If you don’t have sysadmin skills to setup a server from scratch, then you can use Cloudways Yii hosting platform for that. Using this platform, you can instantly launch a server without have to manually install OS, stack or PHP.
