PHP version for Composer

Hey there,

Wondering if there is a way to connect composer to Local so that I don’t get this message:

Loading composer repositories with package information
Updating dependencies (including require-dev)
Your requirements could not be resolved to an installable set of packages.

Problem 1
- This package requires php ^7.0.10 but your PHP version (5.5.38) does not satisfy that requirement.

Hey Justin,

You can install Composer in a site container by doing the following:

  1. Right-click on the site and go to “Open Site SSH”
  2. Enter apt-get update && apt-get install -y curl
  3. Enter curl -sS | php -- --install-dir=/usr/local/bin --filename=composer
  4. After that, you can immediately use composer

Awesome! Thank you.

So now, how do we get past using PHP 7.0.3 in Local?


Curl didn’t work for me here, but wget did via this thread: Permissions for Composer installs
