Omeka Module Starter Kit - error installing with composer


I was wondering if anyone here has tried installing the Omeka module Starter Kit found on GitHub here:

I installed via Composer as the instructions specify, but I received a HTTP 500 error when uploading to my server, with this message:

Warning: require(/home/schaffer/…/ircmaxell/password-compat/lib/password.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/schaffer/ on line 66

Fatal error: require(): Failed opening required ‘/home/schaffer/…/ircmaxell/password-compat/lib/password.php’ (include_path=’.:/opt/cpanel/ea-php70/root/usr/share/pear’) in /home/schaffer/ on line 66

I have no idea how to troubleshoot from here and I was wondering if someone could help point me in the right direction.



The message is related to composer. You should retry “composer install” at the root of the module.


Yes, that is what I have tried, twice…

$ cd OmekaModuleStarterKit
$ composer install

It actually took hours to upload this folder to my server once composer installed everything, and I had received the error I posted before everything had a chance to upload. I am still receiving an error after completion, but it is saying the following now:

Service with name “ViewTemplatePathStack” could not be created. Reason: Invalid path provided; must be a string, received boolean


I can fix this issue: in file config/module.config.php, change:

        realpath( __DIR__ . '/../view'),


        dirname(__DIR__) . '/view',

But the next issue is complex, so you can ask the full install process directly to the developer on github.


Ok, thank you so much!
