Yii2 Framework console built-in web server can’t start

If you can`t start built-in web server in Yii2 Framework on Windows with error message like Document root “…\console/web” does not exist. in advanced application template you should use the following commands:

1. For backend admin application:

yii.bat serve/index --docroot="backend/web/"

2. For frontend application:

yii.bat serve/index --docroot="frontend/web/"

For basic application template use command:

yii.bat serve/index --docroot="web/"

On Linux or MacOS use ./yii instead of yii.bat
