Setup in NEOS Skeleton

Hi everyone,

we are trying to set up our NEOS Skeleton on Windows 10 Home, for which we need the following requirements: PHP 7.4+, composer and MySQL 5.7.x or MariaDB 10.2.x.

We were following this tutorial, and when trying step 2 on this site (Docker and Docker Composer Setup) we got the following error:

$ docker run -v "%cd%":/app -it --rm composer create-project neos/neos-base-distribution happify
docker: Error response from daemon: create %cd%: "%cd%" includes invalid characters for a local volume name, only "[a-zA-Z0-9][a-zA-Z0-9_.-]" are allowed. If you intended to pass a host directory, use absolute path.
See 'docker run --help'.

What is the %cd% supposed to do and how do we bypass the character restriction? Should we replace the %cd% with something?

Thank you already in advance!

hmmm try

  • $PWD
  • %cd%
  • $(pwd)

i found this post: Windows version of Linux’s $(pwd) | Michael Brooks

which shell are u using?

We managed to fix it by replacing %cd% with the directory name, thanks : )
