php – Composer: Command Not Found

php – Composer: Command Not Found

This problem arises when you have composer installed locally.
To make it globally executable,run the below command in terminal

sudo mv composer.phar /usr/local/bin/composer

For CentOS 7 the command is

sudo mv composer.phar /usr/bin/composer

I am using CentOS and had same problem.

I changed /usr/local/bin/composer to /usr/bin/composer and it worked.

Run below command :

curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | php
sudo mv composer.phar /usr/bin/composer

Verify Composer is installed or not

composer --version

Your composer.phar command lacks the flag for executable, or it is not inside the path.

The first problem can be fixed with chmod +x composer.phar, the second by calling it as ./composer.phar -v.

You have to prefix executables that are not in the path with an explicit reference to the current path in Unix, in order to avoid going into a directory that has an executable file with an innocent name that looks like a regular command, but is not. Just think of a cat in the current directory that does not list files, but deletes them.

The alternative, and better, fix for the second problem would be to put the composer.phar file into a location that is mentioned in the path
