title: Packagist with your own Git Server
The [Packagist](https://packagist.org/) service is used to make it possible to
install PHP dependencies using the [Composer](https://getcomposer.org/) tool.
It is very much "optimized" for GitHub, but using your own Git server is also
supported, although it has some rough edges:
1. Packagist is not able to connect to web servers using the
TLS configuration (issue [#918](https://github.com/composer/packagist/issues/918));
2. Packagist's `update-package` hook requires the repository URL to have at
least two path segments (issue [#917](https://github.com/composer/packagist/issues/917));
3. Packgist's Git hook documentation could be more clear.
It is not so difficult to work around these issues though. Hopefully these
workarounds will not be required anymore in the future.
You can use the
TLS configuration for your "git" virtual host.
### Path Segments
If you set up your Git server according to my previous blog post
[here](git_server_centos.html), you will have the problem that the
`update-package` Git hook to won't work with Packagist. The repository URL must
contain at least two path segments. So, for example the repository URL
`https://HOST/php-yubitwee` won't work, but
In order to work around this, you can modify the `repo.url` and `repo.path`
fields in `/etc/cgitrc`, e.g.:
Then move the repository directory to `/var/lib/git/fkooman/php-yubitwee.git`
from `/var/lib/git/php-yubitwee.git` as well. That should be sufficient.
Don't forget to clear the cache as documented in the previous blog post.
### Git Hook
The Packagist Git hook configuration is more or less documented
What I actually ended up doing is put the following script as `post-receive` in
my Git repository `hooks` directory, e.g.
-X POST \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" \
Note that the `PACKAGIST_PACKAGE_URL` as mentioned on the Packagist
documentation page is actually *your* Git repository URL.
Make sure the file is executable:
$ chmod 0755 /var/lib/git/fkooman/php-yubitwee.git/hooks/post-receive
You can actually run it directly to test it, otherwise it will be triggered
when you push to your Git server.
