Recommended to read:

As for Varbase 8.8.8 and Varbase 9.0.0-rc1, Varbase works with both Composer 1.0 and Composer 2.0

Recommended to build all new Varbase Projects with Composer 2.0

If the site was built recently with the listed latest releases Varbase 8.8.8 or Varbase 9.0.0-rc1, but the project was built using the Composer 1.0 version. The site is ready to start using Composer 2.0

Only update the Composer from 1.0 to 2.0

Do acomposer updateto update the autoloaders, namespaces map, and classes map.

If the site was built with Varbase 8.8.7 and older, Follow the following steps:

Step #1: Update composer to latest composer 1.0 by

composer self-update --1

Step #2: Update Varbase projectcomposer.josn file

Change the following:

"composer/installers": "~1.0",
"oomphinc/composer-installers-extender": "~1.0",
"cweagans/composer-patches": "~1.0",
"drupal/drupal-library-installer-plugin": "^0.3",


"composer/installers": "~1.0 || ~2.0",
"oomphinc/composer-installers-extender": "~1.0 || ~2.0",
"cweagans/composer-patches": "~1.0",

Remove drupal/drupal-library-installer-plugin

Step #3: Update Varbase to 8.8.8 or 9.0.0-rc1 with Composer 1.0

composer update -vvv

Repeat this composer update 2 or 3 times to make sure that their are no updates

Step #4: Update composer to latest composer 2.0 by

composer self-update --2

Step #5: Rebuild the autoloader for map of classes and namespaces

rm -rf composer.lock bin/ vendor/ docroot/modules/contrib/ docroot/themes/contrib/ docroot/profiles/varbase/ docroot/libraries/
composer install -vvv
cd docroot/
drush cr

At this point the autoload and real autoload files + mapping should be changed.

Check the complete changelog. https://github.com/composer/composer/releases/tag/2.0.0

When having any custom composer plugins or still having issues. Or if modules are using the old way of autoloading

Custom Composer plugins must have "composer-plugin-api": "^1.1 || ^2"

Make sure that the root composer.json file do not have invalid PSR-0 / PSR-4 . And the class configurations will not autoload anymore in optimized-autoloader mode, as per the warnings introduced in 1.10
