Re: Cannot Download to Server

Composer was the first method I tried, about 15 attempts ago.  It was fraught with errors.  I still don't understand why I must use an intermediary, or download to a secondary machine, only to upload again to a final server.  This whole process seems unnecessarily dumbed-down, and requires that I learn a tertiary package to accommodate .   Why can I not just download the package, extract and configure?
