Yii2 advanced – Hide frontend/web and backend/web from url

Step 1
Create .htaccess file in root folder, i.e advanced/.htaccess and write below code.
—————

Options +FollowSymlinks
RewriteEngine On

# deal with admin first
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/(admin) <------
RewriteRule ^admin/assets/(.*)$ backend/web/assets/$1 [L]
RewriteRule ^admin/css/(.*)$ backend/web/css/$1 [L]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/backend/web/(assets|css)/ <------
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/(admin) <------
RewriteRule ^.*$ backend/web/index.php [L]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/(assets|css) <------
RewriteRule ^assets/(.*)$ frontend/web/assets/$1 [L]
RewriteRule ^css/(.*)$ frontend/web/css/$1 [L]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/(frontend|backend)/web/(assets|css)/ <------
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !index.php
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f [OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^.*$ frontend/web/index.php

—————

Note : if you are trying in local server then replace ^/ with ^/project_name/ where you see arrow sign.
Remove those arrow sign

Step 2
Now create a components/Request.php file in common directory and write below code in this file.
—————

namespace common\components;


class Request extends \yii\web\Request {
    public $web;
    public $adminUrl;

    public function getBaseUrl(){
        return str_replace($this->web, "", parent::getBaseUrl()) . $this->adminUrl;
    }


    /*
        If you don't have this function, the admin site will 404 if you leave off 
        the trailing slash.

        E.g.:

        Wouldn't work:
        site.com/admin

        Would work:
        site.com/admin/

        Using this function, both will work.
    */
    public function resolvePathInfo(){
        if($this->getUrl() === $this->adminUrl){
            return "";
        }else{
            return parent::resolvePathInfo();
        }
    }
}

—————

Step 3
Installing component. Write below code in frontend/config/main.php and backend/config/main.php files respectively.
————————-


//frontend, under components array
'request'=>[
    'class' => 'common\components\Request',
    'web'=> '/frontend/web'
],
'urlManager' => [
        'enablePrettyUrl' => true,
        'showScriptName' => false,
],

// backend, under components array
'request'=>[
    'class' => 'common\components\Request',
    'web'=> '/backend/web',
    'adminUrl' => '/admin'
],
'urlManager' => [
        'enablePrettyUrl' => true,
        'showScriptName' => false,
],

————————-

Step 4 (Optional, if doesn’t work till step three)

create .htaccess file in frontend/web and backend/web directories
————————-


RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php?/$1 [L]

————————-

Note: make sure you have enabled your mod rewrite in apache

Thats it! You can try your project with
http://www.project.com/admin, http://www.project.com

in local server
localhost/project_name/admin, localhost/project_name
