Installation & Setting Up Pretty URLs
This video will walk you through how to install the Yii2 framework on your computer. Once we have Yii 2 installed, we'll set up a virtual host and we'll also enable pretty URLs. Oooh yeah!
With the installation finally out of the way, in this video we'll look at the basic structure of a Yii2 website and we'll manually build our first controller file.

In today's lesson, you'll learn how to enable ajax validation with the Yii2 framework. Yes, yes yes!
