How to Use the Console
The Using Console Commands, Shortcuts and Built-in Commands page of the components documentation looks at the global console options. When you use the console as part of the full-stack framework, some additional global options are available as well.
By default, console commands run in the
dev environment and you may want to
change this for some commands. For example, you may want to run some commands in
prod environment for performance reasons. Also, the result of some
commands will be different depending on the environment. For example, the
cache:clear command will clear and warm up the cache for the specified
1 2 3 4 5
# clear (and warm up) the cache of the 'prod' environment $ php bin/console cache:clear --env=prod # this is equivalent: $ php bin/console cache:clear --no-warmup -e prod
In addition to changing the environment, you can also choose to disable debug mode.
This can be useful where you want to run commands in the
but avoid the performance hit of collecting debug data:
$ php bin/console list --no-debug
