I try to install magento 2 via composer.

composer create-project --repository=https://repo.magento.com/ magento/project-community-edition .

But I get "out of memory". I have 16 GB RAM.

So I restarted windows and tried again directly after restart without any programs open, but it still throws this error.

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 1610612736 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 64 bytes) in phar://C:/ProgramData/ComposerSetup/bin/composer.phar/src/Composer/DependencyResolver/Rule2Literals.php on line 53

Check https://getcomposer.org/doc/articles/troubleshooting.md#memory-limit-errors for more info on how to handle out of memory errors.

Try with this command

php -d memory_limit=-1 /usr/local/bin/composer create-project --repository=https://repo.magento.com/ magento/project-community-edition --ignore-platform-reqs .

usually the path of composer is here:

/usr/local/bin/composer

If you are having problems with composer path , run the command below to find which path is the composer :

which composer

In your case should be :

php -d memory_limit=-1 /c/ProgramData/ComposerSetup/bin/composer create-project --repository=repo.magento.com magento/project-community-edition --ignore-platform-reqs .

  • I guess composer does not work with windows. I get Could not open input file: C:/Program Files/Git/usr/local/bin/composer – Black Jan 30 '20 at 11:56
