Install Composer on Amazon Ec2

Wesley Wesley 1 year

In this blog post, we are going to show you how to install composer on your Amazon Linux ec2 server.

Requirements

  • php needs to be installed

Let's move to the user src directory.

cd /usr/src

Now let's download composer.

php -r "copy('https://getcomposer.org/installer', 'composer-setup.php');"

Let's verify the download file.

php -r "if (hash_file('sha384', 'composer-setup.php') === '756890a4488ce9024fc62c56153228907f1545c228516cbf63f885e036d37e9a59d27d63f46af1d4d07ee0f76181c7d3') { echo 'Installer verified'; } else { echo 'Installer corrupt'; unlink('composer-setup.php'); } echo PHP_EOL;"
output
Installer verified

Now let's install composer on the server.

php composer-setup.php --install-dir=/usr/local/bin
output
All settings correct for using Composer
Downloading...

Composer (version 2.0.7) successfully installed to: /usr/local/bin/composer.phar
Use it: php /usr/local/bin/composer.phar

After installing composer you can delete the composer-setup file with the following command.

php -r "unlink('composer-setup.php');"

Let's check if composer is working.

/usr/local/bin/composer.phar
output
