I am endeavouring to install Silverstripe using Composer as recommended. Error after error installing Composer and now problems with SS. I have moved on to 3.1.0 beta3 as per a forum message.

Can someone please enlighten me on what is causing this error message.

[ErrorException]

Hmm, seems like it relates to an error about an invalid directory name. http://codophony.blogspot.co.nz/2013/04/composer-in-cygwin-createprocess-failed.html

Perhaps try another directory. Usually on Windows for WAMP you'd install into C:\wamp\www\ or somewhere similar, e.g.

composer create-project silverstripe/installer C:\wamp\www\myss3proj 3.1.x-dev

Thanks for your prompt reply, Sean.

I tried putting in the full path as you suggested and then tried again with C:\wamp\www\ in the path. Both gave the same error.

I am reduced to wondering how important using Composer is if you don't plan to alter core files!

From a look at the output, it seems like Composer was able to download the files correctly, but the error occurred after it had finished that, presumably one of the post install scripts.

It might be related to a change to the installer here for 3.1: https://github.com/silverstripe/silverstripe-installer/commit/26147bb962ba8246e3bb0dc61624bcc45019d996#composer.json

If you access the site in your browser where you installed it does it bring up the installer? e.g. http://localhost/ctla_stripe

Yes - it brings up the CMS/Framework Installation window. I will carry on and see if the installation causes any problems.

(Back slash or forward slash in the path gave the same result.)

Thank you very much - it has taken some to get this far with Composer!

Hi Christy,

Good to hear that worked.

The post scripts ended up being reverted, so the create-project command should work from now on:
