I have followed the directions to install drupal-project with drupal-composer. I keep getting this error and it doesn't make sense to me.
Could not find package drupal-composer/drupal-project with version 8.x-dev in a version installable using your PHP version 5.5.38.
I am using MAMP and the php version is 7.1.22. I even tried the template download for drupal-composer/drupal-project and I still get the same error. Composer is installed, verified with the checking the version in terminal.
I have searched and cannot find anything to assist me in solving. Yes, I am new to composer and trying to get a local environment setup with composer versus just downloading etc. Any help or direction would be appreciated.
