    Step 15 is not working for me, getting below error – please help

    composer install –no-dev –prefer-source
    Invalid argument –prefer-source. Use “composer require –prefer-source” instead to add packages to your composer.json.

    I’m using Ubuntu when I finished all the configuration and then I went to the web page with my IP address it gave me:
    “Whoops, looks like something went wrong.”

    Can you help me please.

    Thank you so much for this detailed tutorial, I’m using CentOS 7 and I was having problem executing this command “sudo composer install –no-dev –prefer-source” it says “no composer found”
    after that I changed /usr/local/bin/composer to /usr/bin/composer and it worked.

    Run below command :

    $ curl -sS | php 
    $ sudo mv composer.phar /usr/bin/composer

    You really should consider removing CentOS as an option for installation until you fix the PHP portion of this HOWTO.

  7. Bart says:

    This will not really work on CentOS as you presented.

    The app requires PHP 5.5>, but CentOS by default installs 5.4, this guide needs to include information on how to install PHP 5.5> on CentOS instead.

    • Aaron Kili says:


      Thanks for the heads up, we will include information on how to install PHP 5.5> on CentOS. We will possibly create a dedicated article for this including installation of all currently supported versions of PHP(i.e 5.6, 7.0 and 7.1) and put a link to it.

    • Ravi Saive says:


      We have added installation instructions for PHP 5.6 on CentOS 7 at Step #3.

      Thanks for pointing out..

  8. Bart says:

    step 4 doesn’t work.

    The repo reference is wrong. Instead of

    $ sudo git clone snipe-it

    it should be

    $ sudo git clone

    • Ravi Saive says:


      Oops sorry for typo, corrected in the writeup – yes it should be.

      $ sudo git clone
