Use the TYPO3 Console

NOTE: We are in the process of modifying the file structure and configuration for many Bitnami stacks. On account of these changes, the file paths stated in this guide may change depending on whether your Bitnami stack uses native Linux system packages (Approach A), or if it is a self-contained installation (Approach B). To identify your Bitnami installation type and what approach to follow, run the command below:

 $ test ! -f "/opt/bitnami/common/bin/openssl" && echo "Approach A: Using system packages." || echo "Approach B: Self-contained installation."

The output of the command indicates which approach (A or B) is used by the installation, and will allow you to identify the paths, configuration and commands to use in this guide. Refer to the FAQ for more information on these changes.

The TYPO3 Console provides a clean API to register commands (using Extbase Command Controllers) and to call the the commands through a single command line tool called typo3cms. It is already included with the Bitnami solution so you can start using it easily.

To use it, navigate to the TYPO3 installation directory, and execute the command below:

NOTE: Depending on your installation type, the TYPO3 installation directory will be in the following locations:

  • Approach A (Bitnami installations using system packages): /opt/bitnami/typo3
  • Approach B (Self-contained Bitnami installations): /opt/bitnami/apps/typo3/htdocs/
$ sudo php ./vendor/bin/typo3cms
