Topic: [solved]how do i get composer vers 2.x on CentOS 7?

hi, i am currently using remi repos for php 7.4  I have composer installed from epel 1.x but I want to use composer 2.x.  i get the impression that remi has a 2.x version of composer but i cant figure out how to upgrade to it.

thanks in advance for your help!

Re: [solved]how do i get composer vers 2.x on CentOS 7?

composer v2 is in "remi" repository which is not enabled by default, as it overrides packages from other repository (EPEL in this case)

yum --enablerepo=remi update composer

Much more simpler on C8 or C9 where composer is a module

Desktop: Fedora 35 + rpmfusion + remi-test + remi-dev
Laptop:  Fedora 36 + rpmfusion + remi (SCL only)
Hosting Server: CentOS 8 Stream with EPEL, rpmfusion, remi
