Installing Drupal with Composer template


I am doing a fresh install of Drupal 8. I read that Composer is the way to go to manage dependencies, etc.

I have spent the past two days installing Composer and getting past all of the newbie issues with my web server.

So, I need a little help figuring out where to actually install the Composer template.

With the command: “composer create-project drupal-composer/drupal-project:8.x-dev some-dir –stability dev –no-interaction” where do I actually go on my remote server?

For example: do I
cd public_html
and then create a folder under the public_html called: drupal8site?

If someone can give me a push in the right direction, I will be able to do the rest. The tutorials I have viewed all start with a local machine.

Thank you,


Drupal version:
