Warning: This installation method might not be suitable for complex WordPress projects. The plugin installed this way will be self-contained and include all of the required dependencies for itself and rollbar/rollbar-php library. In complex projects, this might lead to version conflicts between dependencies and other plugins/packages. If this is an issue in your project, we recommend the "Advanced" installation method. For more information why this might be important for you, read Using Composer with WordPress.

This is a recommended way to install Rollbar plugin for advanced projects. This way ensures the plugin and all of its' dependencies are managed by Composer.

  1. If your WordPress project is not managed with Composer yet, we suggest looking into upgrading your WordPress: Using Composer with WordPress.
  2. In your composer.json add wpackagist-plugin/rollbar to your require section, i.e.:
      "require": {
     "php": ">=5.5",
     ...,
     "wpackagist-plugin/rollbar": "*"
      }
    
  3. Issue command composer install in the root directory of your WordPress project.
  4. In PluginsInstalled plugins find Rollbar and click Activate underneath.
  5. Log into your Rollbar account dashboard.
  6. Go to SettingsProject Access Tokens.
  7. Copy the token value under post_client_item and post_server_item.
  8. Navigate to ToolsRollbar.
