Problem with Netbeans and FuelPHP 1.6
  • I use Netbeans 7.3 IDE on Windows and I have the FuelPHP plugin installed. Everything works OK as long as I select FuelPHP version 1.5.3.

    When I select FuelPHP 1.6 or higher, as soon as I trie to access my application with the browser, it says:

    "Composer is not installed. Please run "php composer.phar update" in the root to install Composer"

    So I run "php composer.phar update" and I also run "php composer.phar self-update". Both commands run successfylly, but the error remains.

    What do I need to do to solve this?

    BTW The same application runs without errors with FuelPHP 1.5.3

  • Have you changed the default folder structure? When you upgraded, did you also upgrade the app itself (in particular the oil script in the root, and the public/index.php)?
  • hi,

    Can you check in Netbeans menu:
    tools / Options / php / composer

  • @Harro

    No, I haven't changed the default folder structure. I didn't actually upgrade anything. When I create a new project in Netbeans, I have the option to use the FuelPHP plugin and I can select the FuelPHP version. When the project is created Netbeans copies a full version of FuelPHP (core and packages) to the folder structure of my project. It does that for each project that I create.

    When I select 1.5.3 or lower everything works fine. When I select 1.6 or 1.6.1, even the default welcome app that comes with the project won't run (message: composer not installed, etc.).



    I checked Tools / Options / PHP / Conposer. The composer field was empty, so I selected the composer.phar of my Netbeans project. I left the fields Vendor, Author name and email unchanged.

    It looked promising, but I still have the same error. So far I only clicked the OK button. Do I need to click the Export or Import buttons on the left?

  • I don't use Netbeans, and I've never heard of that plugin.

    But it looks like it needs to be updated so that it runs Composer after the full copy.
  • My interface is in french,I don't know exact term in english

    Netbeans plugins are up to date?

    help/ check for update 

    and try
    tools / module d'extenstion (plugins?) /updated

    in "installed" for me with "show details" it's write for Php composer:
    version : 0.8.1

  • @bdouxx, @Harro: Thx for your help, I appreciate it.

    The problem is solved now. In fact I wasn't accurate in my information. Sorry about that.


    php composer.phar update

    did report an error, ie. something like:

    ssl not enabled in PHP.

    After editing php.ini, removing the semicolon from:


    the composer update runs without errors and the Netbeans default welcome app runs successfully.

    Btw, I use Netbeans on Windows with the XAMPP webserver.

Howdy, Stranger!
