Yii2 Parser Error Installer.php

Hi to all,

i wanted test yii2 for my new project.

Download my the basic Template and updated composer.json for a extension installation and when i try to update composer like this way :

composer update

i get this error:

Parse error: parse error in /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/basic/vendor/yiisoft/yii2-composer/yii/composer/Installer.php on line 82

i am using php 5.5.10

can someone help me please.


What does php -v say?

PHP 5.3.28 with Suhosin-Patch (cli) (built: Jan 23 2014 20:55:45) 

Copyright (c) 1997-2013 The PHP Group

Zend Engine v2.3.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2013 Zend Technologies

now confused because i am using mamp and thats running php 5.5.10

Php CLI installed on your system can differ from mamp’s version.

Either upgrade, or use mamp’s docs to discover how to use its version for cli.

Probably something like this should help:

alias phpmamp='/Applications/MAMP/bin/php5.X.X/bin/php' // use your actual path here

phpmamp composer.phar update

Thank you for fast help

export PATH=/Applications/MAMP/bin/php/php5.5.10/bin:$PATH

this solved for me that problem.

thank you Orey
