Problem configuring pipelines composer install errors

We're having trouble getting pipelines to work.

We probably just need some help configuring it.

So far we are getting errors on `composer install`

Does anyone have any advice?

Thank you

We managed to get a bit further after we found this documentation, which luckily mentions installing php gd on Pipelines part way down. Documentation advises about `docker-php-ext-configure` and `docker-php-ext-install`:

We then managed to also install the php zip extension using `docker-php-ext-install zip`.


We're now getting errors for other reasons (trying to run Laravel Dusk) but the core issue we created this thread for seems to be resolved.

thanks for pointing to right direction. documentation is bit outdated now, for php8 these settings worked for me

- apt-get update && apt-get install -y libfreetype6-dev libjpeg62-turbo-dev libpng-dev
- docker-php-ext-configure gd --with-freetype --with-jpeg
- docker-php-ext-install -j$(nproc) gd

Thank you for pointing me in right direction 

- curl -sS | php -- --install-dir=/usr/local/bin --filename=composer
- composer require phpunit/phpunit
- composer install

docker-php-ext-install pdo_mysql mbstring zip exif pcntl bcmath opcache

Add this before "composer install" in the pipeline respectively in the Script - Section.

As the problem descriptions indicates, you are missing some php extensions.

So you would need to add sudo apt-get install php7.x-extensionname, for each missing extension.


I haven't used pipelines, but that seems to be the issue.

Thank you

We'll give this a go.

We tried adding the line:

apt-get install php7.1-gd

But we just get an error:

E: Unable to locate package php7.1-gd
E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'php7.1-gd'

Other posts (not necessarily pipelines posts) mention modifying the php.ini file to enable gd but I don't know where this is in Pipelines.

Full pipelines config being:

# This is a sample build configuration for PHP.
# Check our guides at for more examples.
# Only use spaces to indent your .yml configuration.
# -----
# You can specify a custom docker image from Docker Hub as your build environment.

max-time: 7

: php:7.1.14

- step:
- composer
- apt-get update && apt-get install -y unzip
- apt-get install php7.1-gd
- curl -sS | php -- --install-dir=/usr/local/bin --filename=composer
- composer install
# - vendor/bin/phpunit
