composer.json error
  • On Debian 7 Wheezy I tried installing newscoop using the stated recommended install method (stated in github)

    curl -s https://getcomposer.org/installer | php
    php composer.phar create-project sourcefabric/newscoop /var/www/newscoop dev-master

    This gave the following error:
    [InvalidArgumentException]
      Composer could not find a composer.json file in /var/www/newscoop
      To initialize a project, please create a composer.json file as described in the http://getcomposer.org/ "Getting Started" section

    I have no idea how to proceed from this.  I tried to read the getcomposer.org website as suggested, but did not understand what to do.  Anyone able to help?
