Composer: requirements could not be resolved

This worked recently on a different machine.

Zero experience with yii and composer. I will begin trying to track this down today. If anyone here knows what I am facing, I will be grateful for the help.

Thank you.

Current issue is just getting the web server configured so I can start work on the project


I have probably used composer on this server months or years ago and forgotten (ie I have no idea if some priorf cut and paste instructions installed some version of jquery or bower…)

Basically clueless ;)

[me@myserver killme]$ composer create-project --prefer-dist yiisoft/yii2-app-basic basic

Installing yiisoft/yii2-app-basic (2.0.6)

  - Installing yiisoft/yii2-app-basic (2.0.6)

    Downloading: 100%         

Created project in basic

Loading composer repositories with package information

Installing dependencies (including require-dev)

Your requirements could not be resolved to an installable set of packages.

  Problem 1

    - yiisoft/yii2 2.0.6 requires bower-asset/jquery 2.1.*@stable | 1.11.*@stable -> no matching package found.

    - yiisoft/yii2 2.0.5 requires bower-asset/jquery 2.1.*@stable | 1.11.*@stable -> no matching package found.

    - Installation request for yiisoft/yii2 >=2.0.5 -> satisfiable by yiisoft/yii2[2.0.5, 2.0.6].

Potential causes:

 - A typo in the package name

 - The package is not available in a stable-enough version according to your minimum-stability setting

   see <> for more details.

Read <> for further common problems.

That one should be easy enough to fix :)

composer global require "fxp/composer-asset-plugin:~1.1.1"

Edit: it allows Composer to handle bower and npm repositories.

You beat me to the punch! Just got there myself!

More reading less posting and I would have been fine.

Thank you so much. I really appreciate the prompt and helpful response. On Christmas Day no less.

It seems as if both of us include web development in Christmas festivities. :)
