- Request with the URL1http://example.com/index.php?r=post/show&id=1
and the Web server handles the request by executing the bootstrap script index.php which is located in the Root Directory.
- The bootstrap script creates an Application instance and runs it.
- The Application obtains detailed user request information from an application component named request.
- The application determines the requested controller and action with the help of an application component named urlManager.
- The application creates an instance of the requested controller to further handle the user request. The controller determines that the action show refers to a method named actionShow in the controller class.
- The action reads a Post model whose ID is 1 from the database.
- The action renders a view named show with the Post model.
- The view reads and displays the attributes of the Post model.
- The view executes some widgets, embed the rendering result in a layout and displays it to the user.
