Deploying your PHP application on Engine Yard Cloud

For PHP projects, if Engine Yard detects a composer.lock file in the project root, it will immediately run composer install, installing your Composer-managed dependencies. This greatly simplifies deployment as you do not need to install the dependencies, package them, and push them to your environment – or, alternately, create a deployment task to install them. Engine Yard takes care of the heavy lifting for you.
