I have tried to install the extension via Composer and successfully installed. After installing, I can see the extension menu in the admin panel. However, I can't see any files in the app/code directory. I'm new to use composer in Magento.

I'm aware we can install the extension manually as well as the composer. Could anyone please suggest me which one is better to install the extension in Magento?.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

  • did you look in the vendor folder? – fmsthird May 10 '19 at 8:48
  • @magefms Thanks. I can see the module files in the Vendor folder. So the extension we install via composer will put the files in Vendor. What if we need to update the module design or something? Do we need to override? – Siva May 10 '19 at 8:52

    Yeah you need to override it if you need to modify something – fmsthird May 10 '19 at 8:53

Please check vendor/company_name/module_name,

You can also check your composer.json file for module entries through composer.


Composer installs extensions into the vendor folder.
