I have just installed composer in my /usr/bin folder, so when from that folder I run php composer.phar I get the help info about composer. But, when I try to run the same from other folder I get Could not open input file: composer.phar.

Since Composer works with the current working directory it is possible to install it in a system wide way.

  • Change into a directory in your path like cd /usr/local/bin
  • Get Composer curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | php
  • Make the phar executable chmod a+x composer.phar
  • Change into a project directory cd /path/to/my/project
  • Use Composer as you normally would composer.phar install
  • Optionally you can rename the composer.phar to composer to make it easier

Sometimes you can't or don't want to download at /usr/local/bin (some have experienced user permissions issues or restricted access), in this case you can try this
