Support required hosting a simple php app in free server space

I have a simple php application and I need to host it.  I have created a free account in 000webhost.com . They have provided me ftp credentials. In my local machine, the directory structure for the project is as follows:

   C/wamp/www/myproject

Also I have placed the framework yii from http://www.yiiframework.com/ in the same path above.

When I log in to ftp for the free server account, I can only see the public_html folder. I do not know where I should place myproject and yii folders to host the project succesfully.

I have already created database in this free server space using phpmyadmin.

Any help which will guide me to the correct solution will be appreciated with full points.

Hi, I suggest to go back and ask the hosting company. They should be able to provide you with the correct path.

I am almost close to solution I guess. I copied the contents of my project to public_html folder. Also I copied the contents of yii folder to the same public_html folder.

Now when I access the url, I get the following error:

http://androidprofessor.net63.net/

Please show us line 12 that generates the error.  It looks like the path to the Yii framework is not correct.

<?php

// change the following paths if necessary
$yii=dirname(__FILE__).'/../yii/framework/yii.php';
$config=dirname(__FILE__).'/protected/config/main.php';

// remove the following lines when in production mode
defined('YII_DEBUG') or define('YII_DEBUG',true);
// specify how many levels of call stack should be shown in each log message
defined('YII_TRACE_LEVEL') or define('YII_TRACE_LEVEL',3);

require_once($yii);
Yii::createWebApplication($config)->run();

Also I copied the contents of yii folder to the same public_html folder.
You may want to change this line4:

$yii=dirname(__FILE__).'/../yii/framework/yii.php';

To this, to account for the same public_html folder.

$yii=dirname(__FILE__).'/yii/framework/yii.php';

You may be able to verify this by looking at the directory structure.  It should look something like this.

public_html
|
-->yii
   |
   -->framework
    |
    -->yii.php

@CEHJ - Not yet.

@Ray_Paseur - So, you mean to say, I should upload yii folder directly to public_html folder, rather than copying the contents of it to public_html?

I don't know for sure.  I do know that it appears to be looking for this kind of directory structure (somewhere) and that seems to imply that there needs to be a yii/ folder.

/yii/framework/yii.php
