Common problems that people have run into and how to fix them.
If you’ve encountered a problem, a good first step is to run
composer patches-doctor. This will run a few checks against your system and look for common configuration errors.
Upgrade system software
See the system requirements page for the minimum supported versions of PHP, Composer, and other software. Upgrade your software using the method appropriate for your operating system.
Install patching software
Composer Patches requires
git to be installed in order to apply patches. Previous versions of the plugin relied on
various versions of
patch, but that is no longer the case. Make sure you have
git installed and you should be all set.
Download patches securely
If you’ve been referred here, you’re trying to download patches over HTTP without explicitly telling Composer that you want to do that. See the
secure-http documentation for more information.
