Dear Support,
I guess Akeeba Solo cannot be installed via composer, because I couldn't find information about it. If so, is it planned to support this (or other way of automatisation) in the future?

Akeeba Staff
No, we cannot provide this installation method because Akeeba Solo is only available on a subscription basis. The main concept behind composer is that you either have a free of charge repository or you have the access credentials to the repository. Adding and removing GitHub users to our repository depending on their subscription status is not practical. Furthermore, the GitHub repository does not contain ready-to-run code. A lot of steps are required to combine data from several repositories, some of them belonging to other products we sell. We couldn't give you full Git access to all of our code in order to install Akeeba Solo. That would make the Solo price skyrocket to several hundred Euros instead of just sixty.
