refresh database tables yii 1

To refresh the database tables in Yii 1, you can follow these steps:

  1. Open your command line or terminal.
  2. Navigate to the root directory of your Yii application.
  3. Run the following command to generate the migration files:

yiic migrate create refresh_tables

Replace refresh_tables with a meaningful name for your migration.

  1. Open the newly created migration file located in the protected/migrations directory.
  2. In the up() method, write the necessary code to refresh the tables. This can include creating or dropping tables, altering table structures, etc. Here's an example of dropping and recreating a table:

php public function up() { $this->dropTable('table_name'); $this->createTable('table_name', array( 'id' => 'pk', 'column1' => 'type', 'column2' => 'type', // Add more columns as needed )); }

Customize the table name and column definitions according to your requirements.

  1. Save the migration file.
  2. Run the migration by executing the following command:

yiic migrate

This will apply the changes to the database.

Please note that Yii 1.x is an older version of the framework, and Yii 2.x is the latest stable version. It is recommended to upgrade to Yii 2 if possible, as it provides more features and improvements.
