PHP Question

Yii Basic 404 Page not found

I very new to yii and I came accross this error and I can't find the cause of it.


public function actionUserForm(){

$model = new UserForm();

if($model->load(Yii::$app->request->post()) && $model->validate()){


return $this->render('userform', [
'model' => $model,

UserForm.php (Model)


namespace app\models;

use yii\base\Model;

class UserForm extends Model{
public $name;
public $email;

public function rules(){
return [
[['name', 'email'], 'required'],
//email form should look like an email
['email', 'email'],

userform.php (View)

use yii\helpers\Html;
use yii\widgets\ActiveForm;


$form = ActiveForm::begin();

<?= $form->field($model, 'name'); ?>
<?= $form->field($model, 'email'); ?>

Html::submitButton('Submit', [
'class' => 'btn btn-success'



After that the resulting page would look like this. Can you help in identifying the problem and kindly point out the errors in the code? Because I am very new to this framework and I am still starting to get the feel for it.

This is how I am accessing it right now.

I have an .htaccess file that cleans up the url too.

RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d

RewriteRule . index.php

Then in the web.php this was my step 2 to clean it. These are what I did before actually making the forms.

'urlManager' => [
'enablePrettyUrl' => true,
//this will remove index.php in the url
'showScriptName' => false
//this is a two step process, after this go to the .htaccess in the web directory


the right way for accessing Yii2 url is not cameCase but - minus separator

  ...   web/site/user-form
