Install magento 2 command line interface (CLI)

This tutorial is about Install magento 2 command line interface (cli). Often i have faced little bit of trouble while installing magento or upgrading to a newer version. Also many people complain and ask about to how to install magento via command line.So here, we will discuss particularly about magento 2 version on any system. It is quite a simple process.We will discuss one or two methods here.So moving forward, lets have a look.

So it can be done using a command which is as follows:

php bin/magento setup:install --backend-frontname="admin" --key="admin" --session-save="files"
 --db-host="localhost" --db-name="magento2" --db-user="root" --db-password="root"
--base-url="" --base-url-secure=""
 --admin-user="admin" --admin-password="admin123" --admin-email="qaisarssatti@gmail.com"
--admin-firstname="Qaisar" --admin-lastname="Satti" --use-rewrites=1

If you want to add extra setting in installation you can add language currency time zone and etc with adding following parameters.

--currency=USD --timezone=America/Chicago

That’s it from this tutorial. I strongly believe there is always room for improvement.So i am open for any suggestion and feed back. Please feel free to leave what you are thinking in the comments section below. Cheers.

Magento 2 admin panel Unable to sign in or Account temporarily disabled

Today we will discuss about how you can solve the issue of magento 2 admin panel unable to sign in or account temporarily disabled. This mainly occurs due to secure functionality of magento 2. Magento 2 have introduced account disabled functionality keeping in mind the security of business. if you tried the wrong password repeatedly in admin panel login. Then you account got locked and temporary disabled. There are various methods to do so but we will discuss few here.

Lets have a look at the first method, in which you will learn to unlock and access the root folder

Unlock admin user

One can unlock the temporarily disabled account by going to Magento 2 root folder SSH and running the
the following command:

php bin/magento admin:user:unlock admin

There is another way of solving this problem but that might work for some and might not work for others. But is worth giving a try.

By resetting the username and password

For doing so do the following

sudo php bin/magento admin:user:create --admin-user="pearlbells" --admin-password="pear122l**all" --admin-email="pearl@gmail.com" --admin-firstname="Admin" --admin-lastname="Admin"

As i told you earlier there are many ways but we just discussed few simple and efficient methods.I Hope they will serve the purpose ad be useful.

Magento 2 create custom command

Today we discuss how in Magento 2 create custom command. Sometime we need to import sample data or use the long queries to get data so for that it is better to use command line interface. Magento 2 use mostly command line interface for upgrade, reindex, static content deploy and many other command available. Here is list of default magento available command. So let’s start with our custom command.

Step 1: Define Command

For custom command keep in mind in item name qaisarSatti_helloworld first letter will your nameSpace. Now add following code to your di.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">
    <type name="Magento\Framework\Console\CommandList">
            <argument name="commands" xsi:type="array">
                <item name="qaisarSatti_helloworld" xsi:type="object">QaisarSatti\HelloWorld\Console\Command\HelloWorld</item>

Step 1: Create Command

Now Create file HelloWorld.php in following directory.


In your configure method just set

setName(‘qaisarsatti:helloworld’) // this will be your command that you run from cli
setDescription(‘Command Description’) // add your command detail

In you execute method you add your custom logic


namespace QaisarSatti\HelloWorld\Console\Command;

use \Symfony\Component\Console\Command\Command;
use \Symfony\Component\Console\Input\InputInterface;
use \Symfony\Component\Console\Output\OutputInterface;

class HelloWorld extends Command

    public function __construct(
    ) {

    protected function configure()
            ->setDescription('Just Checking for command'); //add you description here


    protected function execute(InputInterface $input, OutputInterface $output)
    //add your logic here
            $output->writeln('<info>Yahoooo command Successfully working!</info>');
        } catch (\Exception $e) {

Now check our command is listed or not. Just run following command

php bin/magento list

  qaisarsatti:helloworld                   Just Checking for command
command list

Now we execute the our command

php bin/magento qaisarsatti:helloworld

The output will be shown

Yahoooo command Successfully working!
run command

Now following this you can add new custom command in magento 2.

Magento 2 deploy static content theme

Today we talk about how to use command line interface to do Magento 2 deploy static content theme.Doing the static content deployment is quite a headache. So today i will tell how to deploy content smartly. Magento 2 give option to deploy language example en_US, deploy area example frontend or adminhtml also the deploy the theme example blank or luma. Now we separate these with frontend and backend. This tutorial include the single theme deploy in magento 2, area base deployment example frontend or adminhtml and local base content deploy. Here is shortcut of adding the language area and theme.
-l = language
-a = area
-t = theme

Frontend theme deployment

By default you can use below command to deploy the static content. This is deploy static content for add the languages.

php bin/magento  setup:static-content:deploy

Now we add language filter so it deploy only my specific language example en_Us

php bin/magento  setup:static-content:deploy  en_US

After adding language filter we add the area specific filter so it deploy only my area language example frontend.

php bin/magento  setup:static-content:deploy  en_US -a frontend

After adding area filter we add the theme filter so it deploy only my theme example luma.

php bin/magento  setup:static-content:deploy  en_US -a frontend -t Magento/luma

Bakcend theme deployment

Using php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy en_US after adding language filter we add the area specific filter so it deploy only my area language example backend. Now it will deploy the backend content only.

php bin/magento  setup:static-content:deploy  en_US -a adminhtml

After adding area filter we add the theme filter so it deploy only my theme example backend.

php bin/magento  setup:static-content:deploy  en_US -a adminhtml-t Magento/backend
