So, I've been struggling with some problems with composer and drupal 7. I have composer and composer manager installed because of dependencies for the OpenLayers Module. I don't think I use these dependencies since the site works fine without them installed, but I've run into an issue where I need to fix a composer error in my production environment which is on a shared host and I can't install composer. Most recently, I've just been trying to correctly install the dependencies and then move the files to my live server and hope everything works out. The issue is that when I moved the database to the development machine, the composer file directory is still set with the path from the live server. Anytime I try to navigate to Configuration => System => Composer Manager, or to Status Report, I get the following error:
RuntimeException: Error creating directory: /home/phislub9/public_html/sites/default/files/composer in composer_manager_file_dir() (line 299 of /var/www/html/psrlivetoupdate/sites/all/modules/composer_manager/composer_manager.module).
The issue is that this path is now effectively hard-coded, unless I alter it in the database. So, how can I fix this, and what the correct process for installing these dependencies.
