Install TYPO3 via composer


The recommended way of installing TYPO3 is via Composer, as described on this page.

To create a new TYPO3 project use the TYPO3 Base Distribution:

# Download the Base Distribution, the latest "stable" release (9.5)
composer create-project typo3/cms-base-distribution YourNewProjectFolder


To install TYPO3 via the composer command on windows, it should be started as admin or explicitly given the right to create symlinks (use for example a powershell or git bash started with admin rights).

After composer create project ... executed, you should have the following folder structure:

├── .gitignore
├── composer.json
├── composer.lock
├── public
├── var
└── vendor

Point the document root of your web server to the public folder.

If you do not want to use Composer, follow the package installation guide .
