TYPO3 CMS Installers

1.4.2 2017-08-01 16:14 UTC


This package acts as composer plugin in order to download and install TYPO3 core and extensions and put them into a directory structure which is suitable for TYPO3 to work correctly.

The behavior of the installer can be influenced by configuration in the extra section of the root composer.json

  "extra": {
      "typo3/cms": {
          "web-dir": "web"


You can specify a relative path from the base directory, where the public document root should be located. Links to the typo3 folder and the index.php will be established in this folder by the installer.

The default value is ".", which means next to your root composer.json. This default value is kept for compatibility reasons, but is recommended to have the document root in a separate folder, so that the vendor folder and the composer.lock file are not accessible.
