Use below command to install a new laravel project of a specific version

composer create-project laravel/laravel your_project_name 4.2.* 

here 4.2.* is the version


Update your composer.




You can use below command:

composer self-update

and then create project like this:

composer create-project laravel/laravel {you-project-name} 4.2 --prefer-dist
