Install TYPO3 via composer

The recommended way of installing TYPO3 is via Composer, as described on this page. If you do not want to use Composer, follow the package installation guide.

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

# Download the Base Distribution, the latest "sprint" release (10)
composer create-project typo3/cms-base-distribution YourNewProjectFolder


For Windows users: To install TYPO3 via the composer command, 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.
