Installing Composer with XAMPP(Linux)

Composer is PHP dependency manager

As root, type this command

curl -s | /opt/lampp/bin/php

If it’s succesfull, you should see something like this

[root@localhost ferry]# curl -s | /opt/lampp/bin/php
#!/usr/bin/env phpAll settings correct

for using ComposerDownloading...Composer successfully installed to: /home/ferry/composer.phar

Use it: php composer.phar



When you run Composer with XAMPP(Linux) in terminal, use PHP that comes with XAMPP. Ex., instead of typing

php composer.phar

,you type

/opt/lampp/bin/php composer.phar

For easier access, just create bash alias for it.
