What Is MageWorx PHP Composer Repository

Updating your Magento extensions can actually be an easy process — just a few seconds of waiting and you’re set. But it can also involve installing a bunch of shared packages, additional updates, and even support requests. Basically, this is the hassles no one wants to deal with.

The latest versions of the MageWorx extensions are always available both on our website and Magento Marketplace.

However, due to multiple review stages on Magento Marketplace, the latest version of our products may appear there 2-3 weeks later than on our website.

That is the reason why we’ve launched our own PHP Repository that allows all our users to get timely updates of any purchased MageWorx extension.

To work with the MageWorx Repository, the store owner needs the Composer tool to be installed on the server. The Composer itself is the package manager of the PHP software that allows the customer to install and update the scripts on the website.

If some script has the missing dependent elements, they will be uploaded preventing the situation when some program may fail due to some missing libraries.

The following manual assumes that you have already installed and set up the Composer tool. If you haven’t, please follow these instructions.

    1. Log into your server using the Terminal and navigate to the root Magento folder. Bear in mind that the user should have the write permissions for this folder and its subfolders.
    2. Connect to the MageWorx Composer Repository: 
    3. To use the Composer repository, you’ll need the access keys. To receive them, go to the  MageWorx website, log into your customer account and go to the My Access Keys tab:
    4. Use the Public Key as a login and the Private Key as a password. After the successful authorization, you can install, update or delete the extensions. The main thing here is to detect the name of the package. Please, check this table and find the extension you wish to work with.
