Examples

Below are some common examples of how to use the console. They are typically for a recent version (so if they don't work, it could be that your Tiki is too old)

Batch Upload

A console command for Batch Upload so you can set a scheduled batch upload cron task

Example command line usage
# file according to sub-directory name and create missing galleries
php console.php files:batchupload 1  --subdirToSubgal  --createSubgals

# file according using sub-directory with integer name into gallery with corresponding ID
php console.php files:batchupload 1  --subdirToSubgal --subdirIntegerToSubgalId

# set file user etc so apache can manage the files afterwards
php console.php files:batchupload 1  --fileUser apache --fileGroup allusers --fileMode 0775

# upload files from a different directory
php console.php files:batchupload 1 --filesPath /var/www/other/uploads

# more help
php console.php help files:batchupload

Plugin List Execute

Actions can be run in conjunction with PluginListExecute:

php console.php list:execute "Page Name" "Action Name"


If you see this type of error message:

[root@server]# php console.php list:execute "Batch Sync Users" "SyncUsersTrackers"
Command not available at this stage. Complete required installation steps.
[root@server]#


You may need to update the database schema first, with the usual:

[root@server]# php console.php d:u

Wiki Plugin Approval

plugin:approve
plugin:list
plugin:refresh

Disable the Installer

Disable the installer:

php console.php installer:lock

Manage files from file galleries

Copy files from a gallery to a regular directory on the filesystem:

php console.php files:copy 1 /tmp/dest/

Move files from a gallery to a regular directory on the filesystem:

php console.php files:move 1 /tmp/dest/ --confirm

Clear Caches and options

All the cache
php console.php c:c
All the cache
php console.php c:c all
Help
php console.php c:c help
Database cache
php console.php c:c private
Modules cache
php console.php c:c modules
Templates cache
php console.php c:c templates
CSS and JS caches
php console.php c:c public

Translations

translation:englishupdate: Fix English strings after modifying them.
  translation:getstrings: Update language.php files with new strings


You can use the following parameters with translation:getstrings

[-l|--lang [LANG]] [--outputfiles] [--exclude [EXCLUDE]] [--include [INCLUDE]] [--basedir [BASEDIR]] [--filename [FILENAME]]

Getting string for a single language
php console.php translation:getstrings --lang=en


Note: The basedir parameter is working only if it point to this or another Tiki root directory (will search for /lang/...)

Users commands

A few commands related to user management are available in the Tiki console.

users
  users:create                Create a new user
  users:list                  Display the list of users in the system
  users:password              Set the password to a given user
  users:unlock                Unlock a user

Help on database update

php console.php database:update --help

To mark an upgrade error as registered (so it will be ignored)

php console.php database:update --auto-register

This is useful if you get database errors such as "Duplicate entry..." sometimes

Help on database install

php console.php database:install --help

 Note
If you get Credentials file local.php not found. See http://doc.tiki.org/Installation for more information. message it means you are doing fresh install from command line and need to create the db/local.php file manually first or run the Installer via a web browser.
