Step 8: After uploading the Yii files, navigate to the "myapp" directory in the File Manager.

Step 9: Locate the "requirements" folder in your Yii installation directory and rename it to "requirements_old". This step is important to avoid any permission issues.

Step 12: Once your Yii application is ready, you can access it using the URL of your domain followed by the "myapp" directory. For example, if your domain is "" and you named the Yii directory "myapp", the URL would be "".

That's it! You have successfully installed Yii on 000Webhost. You can now start building your Yii application or project within the "protected" folder.
