I tried to use composer to install YII advance template following this link http://www.yiiframework.com/download/#yii1

but it doesn't work with the following error, please help, thanks.

[jyu@gulpserver ~]$ composer create-project yiisoft/yii2-app-advanced advanced 2.0.9

to retrieve a token. It will be stored in "/home/jyu/.config/composer/auth.json" for future use by Composer.

Your requirements could not be resolved to an installable set of packages.

  Problem 1
    - yiisoft/yii2 2.0.9 requires bower-asset/jquery 2.2.*@stable | 2.1.*@stable | 1.11.*@stable | 1.12.*@stable -> no matching package found.
    - yiisoft/yii2 2.0.8 requires bower-asset/jquery 2.2.*@stable | 2.1.*@stable | 1.11.*@stable -> no matching package found.
    - yiisoft/yii2 2.0.7 requires bower-asset/jquery 2.2.*@stable | 2.1.*@stable | 1.11.*@stable -> no matching package found.
    - yiisoft/yii2 2.0.6 requires bower-asset/jquery 2.1.*@stable | 1.11.*@stable -> no matching package found.
    - Installation request for yiisoft/yii2 >=2.0.6 -> satisfiable by yiisoft/yii2[2.0.6, 2.0.7, 2.0.8, 2.0.9].

Potential causes:
 - A typo in the package name
 - The package is not available in a stable-enough version according to your minimum-stability setting
   see <https://getcomposer.org/doc/04-schema.md#minimum-stability> for more details.

Read <https://getcomposer.org/doc/articles/troubleshooting.md> for further common problems.

Why are you downloading Yii 1 when current is 2.0.9? The web page(*) you posted in your question  says Yii 2.0 is not compatible with 1.1 so unless you're upgrading a 1.1 installation you would be better off with2.0 surely?

If you really need 1.1, I can investigate further. Please post what you want to do.

HI, Duncan:

Thanks for your update. I copied the link showed above "https://github.com/settings/tokens/new?scopes=repo&description=Composer+on+gulpserver+2016-08-27+0019" to retrieve the token ring, is it the right method.

After I copy and paste the link to a browser, it shows a Token description, then I copied the whole string and paste it on the command console to continue.

Please see the attached copyscreen.

Hi, Duncan:

I got it working. It's the token ring's error. I copied the token description instead of the token string for the installation. Thank you very much.
