I’ve seen some DIY walkthroughs regarding converting a ConcreteCMS install to a Composer style installation. However, is there a way to do the opposite, meaning to go from a composer based Concrete5 install to a standard one?
I’d say the only meaningful difference between a composer based setup and a standard one, is that with a standard one you’re using a vendor folder with versions of libraries specifically dialled in for a release.
So really all you’d do is replace the vendor directory in /concrete with the one from a release zip that matches the version of Concrete you’re running.
If you’ve installed a version other than a release, i.e. a development version or particular commit, then you’re better off just leaving things as they are, and maybe upgrading to the next release when it’s made available.
Thanks so much for the response. I did end up getting to the bottom of it yesterday by performing the steps you outlined. (with some extra things to fix on my end) I so appreciate the help as it was my first time dealing with a Composer setup in the wild.
