rConfig - CLI Commands

10 mins V7 Pro V6 Core

rConfig V7 has a number of very useful CLI commands built-in. The commands are useful if;

  • You prefer to use CLI for your configuration management tasks
  • You want to extend an Infrastructure as Code platform such as Ansible, or Chef
  • You have custom scripts that you would like to run against rConfig

You need to be logged in as root user to run these commands, and you need to be in the rConfig ‘current’ directory.

Terminal window
cd /var/www/html/rconfig7/current

Running the following will output all available Laravel commands but you will also see all rConfig command options. Try to stick to using the rConfig commands unless you have a good knowledge of Laravel.
