I am trying to install composer (though to be honest I really have no idea how it fully works and documentation seems to be quite poor) on my MediaTemple DV machine. I am using their instructions
Trying to install globally using:
$ curl -s https://getcomposer.org/installer | php
My command line (again using putty and logged into my server as root) thinks for a second, then sets up for next prompt. I run a simple ls -l to check for the file it should have downloaded with no luck.
Any idea what could be causing the issue? I have tested and do in fact have curl installed.
Based on the first answer, the verbose response is:
