How to place the composer vendor bin directory in your PATH

0 votes
I've been trying all possible methods to install Laravel to no avail. Error messages everything I try. I'm now trying the first method in the quickstart documentation, that is, via Laravel Installer, but it says to "Make sure to place the ~/.composer/vendor/bin directory in your PATH so the Laravel executable is found when you run the Laravel command in your terminal."

so my question is, how do I do that?

Hello @kartik,

To put this folder on the PATH environment variable type

export PATH="$PATH:$HOME/.composer/vendor/bin"

This appends the folder to your existing PATH, however, it is only active for your current terminal session.

If you want it to be automatically set, it depends on the shell you are using. For bash, you can append this line to $HOME/.bashrc using your favorite editor or type the following on the shell

echo 'export PATH="$PATH:$HOME/.composer/vendor/bin"' >> ~/.bashrc

In order to check if it worked, logout and login again or execute

source ~/.bashrc

on the shell.

Hope this works!!

Thank You!!
