php – Installing Composer – Internal Error

Posted by: admin July 12, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I have trouble installing Composer. After I select the php.exe path in the wizard and next thing it shows is the below error description.

The PHP exe file you specified did not execute correctly:
D:\wamp\bin\php\php5.5.12\php.exe Running it from the command line
might highlight the problem. Internal Error [ERR_INVALID], exit code 1

How to&Answers:

I guess this is a problem which had been asked here .

composer not install in windows 7

I figured it out and successfully installed Composer in My windows 10 PC.

I am sharing two solutions here.

There are some steps you have to follow in order to solve your problem.

1st solution.

  1. Find and Open php.ini located in your “php” folder In my case it is in xampp the file is in c:\xampp\php\
  2. Find "extension=php_openssl.dll"
  3. ";extension=php_openssl.dll" uncomment by removing the semicolon ";"
  4. Restart your xampp , now extension should be loaded after that.
  5. Try again now you are able to install composer.

2nd solution(If the above solution didn’t work for you then go with one below. )

This works in my case

  1. Find and Open php.ini located in your “php” folder In my case it is in xampp the file is in c:\xampp\php\
  2. Open SHELL from Xampp start panel by clicking on shell button.
  3. Write php in shell and hit enter
  4. If you get some warning message in your shell that looks like the image below:
    enter image description here
  5. Then you have to fix these warning message by commenting all these extension in your php.ini file.(Actually cause of these warning messages are because more than one time these extensions are enabled but you can un-comment it in php.ini file to solve the issue).

    For Example which is in my case.

    a). You can see in above image there is warning message for curl.

    Module 'curl' already loaded in Unknown on line 0 .
    

    b) To fix this find php_curl.dll file in your php.ini file and comment that extension by adding semicolon ";" in front of that extension like this ;extension=php_curl.dll

Follow above steps if you have more than one warning for each extension until you are not getting any warning message in your shell.

  1. Restart your xampp , now extension should be loaded after that.
  2. Try again now you are able to install composer.

Hope I can solve your issue .

That’s all folks . Happy coding !!! (amitamie.com) 🙂 😉

Answer:

There are some steps you might want to follow in order to solve your problem

  1. You can try to change extension_dir in xampp\php\php.ini to full direction
    like :

    extension_dir = "E:\xampp\php\ext"
    
  2. Install it manually Is there any way to install Composer globally on Windows?
    or you can do it by open XAMPP Shell and write this

    php -r "readfile('https://getcomposer.org/installer');" | php
    
  3. Just install it in C:\ partition, I think it will work .

I think the problem its in the Windows8 and above that not give Full permission to use CMD .

Answer:

You are getting this error because some dll file which is specified in the php.ini is missing. So do the following steps to fix it.

  1. Open command prompt and type php and hit enter.

  2. It will try to execute php and will throw warnings and errors. For example in my case it was like below:
    Error

  3. Now, based on the error, go ahead and comment the extension (listed in the above command) in php.ini file. For example in my case I commented
    extension=php_mysql.dll
    to ;extension=php_mysql.dll

  4. Now try to install the composer again, it should work.

Note: If not repeat the process again, may be there are more then one extensions in php.ini are creating the problem in your case, but at cmd, php might give only one error at once.

Note: Once you have installed composer you can go ahead and uncomment all the line which you had commented.

Answer:

There’s following step you have to made.
