Composer create-project fails

Friday 14 November 2014 11:19:31 am - 9 replies

I can't install ezpublish community using composer.I run:

 composer create-project ezsystems/ezpublish-community


...and get:


- Installing ezsystems/ezpublish-kernel (v2014.11.4)

Downloading: 100%

[ErrorException] ZipArchive::extractTo(vendor/composer/12679239/ezsystems-ezpublish-kernel-e5698c6\eZ\Publish\Core\Repository\Tests\Service\Integration\Legacy\_fixtures\var\ezdemo_site\storage\images\design\plain-site\172-2-eng-US/eZ-Publish-Demo-Design-without-demo-content1.png): failed to open stream: No such file or directory


I did the same a week ago and it worked, so it seems that is a problem with new 2014.11.4 version.Could you explain what is wrong and how to fix it?

Looks like a GitHub temporary issue. I had no problem doing the same as you.

BTW : v2014.11.5 has been tagged last friday blunk.gif Emoticon

I have the same problem.

On a windows device the file path of this file is too long.

Yes, I've also found out that it happens only on Windows. 

So, @Jérôme Vieilledent, it is not temporary thing. It is rather a composer issue, but anyway it is not possible to get ezpublish-kernel using composer and it seems there is no workaround for this problem.

The issue was fixed yesterday, thank you for the report, @Andrey. Yes, ideally, an issue on is a good move (I've created it) happy.gif Emoticon

Can you create a new release 2014.11.6 with this change? happy.gif Emoticon

Done. Just cherry-picked and tagged happy.gif Emoticon

You might need to wait for a few minutes before Packagist updates
