Composer is a tool for dependency management in PHP. It allows you to declare the libraries your project depends on and it will manage (install/update) them for you.


  • CentOS 7
  • cURL
  • PHP (including php-cli)


The installation process of Composer is relatively simple. First, let's get in the good habit of updating our server.

# sudo yum -y update

Switch into the temp directory.

# cd /tmp

Install Composer using cURL

# sudo curl -sS | php

Want to make Composer globally accessible?

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


Composer is an essential tool for any PHP developer. It is very easy to install and you will save countless hours over the years automating your dependencies. Happy developing!
