Installation / Installing Composer
Since Bolt 3.0 production installs are based around Composer installation methodology, by default. Even if you install from a distribution archive file, you are basically getting a pre-prepared Composer install.
If you don't have Composer installed on your system already, it can be obtained from the Composer project website, or by running the following command:
curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | php
Tip: The Bolt documentation assumes that you
composer. If not, you
php composer.phar wherever composer is used in command
