Hi all,

I have a problem with installing SilverStripe using composer. I have installed composer according to the instruction in the manual, than using the command "composer create-project..." i have installed SilverStripe on the server (as the root directory of the website I've placed server path).

The problem is that silverstripe installation files are visible only in Terminal, I can't see them in i.e. Transmit/Finder or on the server. How is it possible? What am I doing wrong? What precisely should I do?

Thank your for your help in advance.

Perhaps they don't have read permissions?

I haven't got into composer, I either down load a complete package from here or the appropriate git branches. It might be easier than dealing with composer.

Make sure you haven't installed SilverStripe into a hidden folder (like ~/.*)

I personally don't use the create project script as you get a lot of garbage for 90% of sites. I use

Can just run bash <(curl -s in terminal and it will setup the project with a bare minimum to get composer.
