So… this is probably an odd video for this channel. But Marketing is so intrenched with tech, I am afraid that this is my inner-geek coming out.
I wanted to have a go at having a play with the Xero (accounting software) API and, in order to use the PHP software development kit (SDK), you need to use Composer. No way out.
So, long story short, I have been avoiding Composer. And, I don’t have a WAMP install on my laptop these days. And I don’t have a dedicated server for hosting. So…. How can I install Composer on shared hosting? – in my case using Siteground as my shared host.
I fully appreciate that many shared hosting providers wont allow SSH access at all – so it’s a non-starter. And, there are different ways of doing things (like getting your SSH key).
So, what’s in this video?
This is me re-going back through the install process for my own peace of mind and re-remembering so I could have something to re-watch the next time I want to do something like this. Because I so this stuff so infrequently. It’s disjointed and not slickly put together. At all. It was meant to be “just for me” but I figured others may find it useful. So, make of it what you will. I just hope it helps a few people.
If it does help you, please give it a thumbs up. Thanks!
