|Strange error - composer misinterpreting 'require' as an input file||3||19:52, 7 May 2014|
Today I got this for a change trying to update via Composer:
[RuntimeException] Failed to execute git checkout 'f7543bcb7ad1b08c1924d65aeea9e353d5953381' -- && git reset --hard 'f7543bcb7ad1b08c1924d65aeea9e353d5953381' -- error: The following untracked working tree files would be overwritten by checkout: tests/phpunit/Integration/ByJsonScript/Fixtures/p-0408 [#1252] intext to use non-strict mode.json Please move or remove them before you can switch branches. Aborting
Go to the directory "/extensions", do a
rm -r SemanticMediaWiki/ there, go back to wiki root "/w" and do the
composer update --prefer-source --no-dev
My CPANEL interface doesn't allow .phar files, so I've had to unpack composer.phar and run it directly. It was working, but I've now got this strange behaviour:
Error message: " PHP: syntax error, unexpected '(' in /home/kchcl200/public_html/wiki/extensions/Composer/bin/composer on line 3 Could not open input file: require " Command: cd www/wiki;php-cli -c extensions/Composer/bin/composer require mediawiki/semantic-media-wiki "~1.9.2"
The file structure is:
bin composer composer.json res composer-schema.json spdx-identifier.json src Composer bootstrap.php Composer Autoload Command Config Console Application.php HtmlOutputFormatter.php ...
I suspect it's something to do with the:
That's the third line of composer.php - but I don't know php, so I'm not familiar with what the back-slashes are supposed to be.
I also think that, in this case, trying to fix the code is probably the wrong approach.
Hence my question here.
Heiya, it will be great if you could always include the pointer to the mailing list item. This will make it easier for others to get the connection to it. Thank you and cheers
OK - I'll do that in future. I wasn't aware that that was the form.
