WAMP and Yii 2 install problem


I’ve tried installing Yii 2.0 basic via composer.

When I run the composer command I get the following output:

C:\wamp\www>composer global require "fxp/composer-asset-plugin:1.0.0-beta4"

Failed loading c:\wamp\bin\php\php5.5.12\zend_ext\php_xdebug-2.2.5-5.5-vc11.dll

Changed current directory to C:/Users/Me/AppData/Roaming/Composer

./composer.json has been created

Loading composer repositories with package information

Upda*ting dependencies (including require-dev)

  • Installing fxp/composer-asset-plugin (v1.0.0-beta4)

    Loading from cache

Writing lock file

Generating autoload files

Is this correct? Should Yii be in my web folder and if so, why is it in the roaming folder? I’m assuming that the failed load of php_xdebug-2.2.5-5.5-vc11.dll is creating the problem, but it is present so I’m not sure why it can’t be loaded.

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

[Note I had to insert an asterisk into upda*ting in order for my post not to be flagged as spam!]

Hi Guys,

thanks for all the help :wink: I eventually followed the instructions here: h t t p : / / mkhuramj.wordpress.com/2014/12/05/installing-yii2-in-3-steps/ and now it appears to be working. I think I was just being stupid and it was working all along.

Now on to stage 2. Actually doing something with the site…
