cd CI/root/dir
composer require michelf/php-markdown

And that’s it! There may be reasons OP and others would want a separate folder, but this is really the way CI4 was designed.

I created the ci2 downloads folder a long time ago when CI source files were only  available in zip format. Old versions with the same name were appended a date and the latest version downloaded. The advantage was that only a single version required updating and the same version could be used with multiple CI installations, only the system folder required changing and could easily be rolled back.

Recently I started using Composer and the default cloned directory is /var/www/ci2/CodeIgniter4/.

Please supply the exact Composer path required to download Markdown.

Using Composer will this mean it will be necessary to have multiple Markdown folders, one for each CI version of CI?
