"PHP Fatal error" on TYPO3 10 composer installation [solved]

Hi,

I was trying to install TYPO3 10 with composer and got a fatal php error. Significant message was this:

typo3cms install:generatepackagestates
PHP Fatal error: Declaration of TYPO3\CMS\Core\Database\Driver\PDOStatement::fetchAll($fetchMode = null, $fetchArgument = null, $ctorArgs = null) must be compatible with Doctrine\DBAL\Driver\PDOStatement::fetchAll($mode = null, …$args) in /home/user/site-c10e/public/typo3/sysext/core/Classes/Database/Driver/PDOStatement.php on line 67

When I go to the directory and try to run update I also get this error message.

Here is the call I used for installation with the complete output.

$ php7.4 composer.phar create-project "typo3/cms-base-distribution:^10.4" site-c10e

How can I fix this?

Best regards

edit: fixing a typo and making a sentence more understandable

It seems composer does not handle environments with multiple php versions by itself. The problem was, that even though composer was called with php7.4, it spawned processes of another php version.

I had to remove global alternative php that pointed to the newest version and then make sure that for the user who installs typo3 “php” defaults to php7.4

I guess I’ll refrain from using calls like

$ phpX.X composer...

in the future.
