Error during install of Thene:There are no commands defined in the "setup:static-content" namespace.

Hello

 

I am in the process  of attempting to install a magento theme Quckstart package

i have followed the instructions supplied by the vendor to

1. extract the quickstart files to www under a directory called Magento2

2. Set up database and imported the supplied sample data

3.Verified Composer is installed successfully and that i have no extensions excluded

 

My error occurs when i wish to setup the static content ready to deploy to the Magento store.

i have opened a CMD Window as administrator,changed to the sub directory Magento2/bin and typed the

command: php magento setup:static-content:deploy. I receive the following error:

 

C:\Ampps\www\Magento2\bin>php magento setup:static-content:deploy -v

 

[InvalidArgumentException]

From my searching of google there are many explanations given for this error.

Can someone assist me narrow down the options for me?

i have attempted to install using two localhost packages with the same result. i also dont experience the name space error when i did a test install with the Magento instance with supplied data from the Magento web site. To me this indicates a problem related to the supplied Can anyone suggest some diagnosis steps i could go through to narrow down the problem? Chris

Re: Error during install of Thene:There are no commands defined in the "setup:static-content&am

Hello again Stanislav

 

Thanks for the advice. I did the following:

1. renamed the composer.json file to composerTEST.json

2. reran the command:  php magento setup:static-content:deploy -v

3. Result was the same error except the question was not present:

Did you mean one of these?
setup
setup:config
setup:cron
setup:db-data
setup:db-schema
setup:db
setup:di
setupSmiley Tongueerformance
setup:store-config

 

i.e.The error message was

 

C:\Ampps\www\Magento2\bin>php magento setup:static-content:deploy -v

 

[InvalidArgumentException]
There are no commands defined in the "setup:static-content" namespace.

I also checked permissions by running the command:    magento-cleanup.php

I obtained this programme off the Magento site i think.

Shown below is the output from running this  command.

 

Do you have any other suggestions? I have no idea what Composer does but  I was wondering whether i need to have Composer running and run the command magento setup:static-content:deploy -v from there?  Chris

Re: Error during install of Thene:There are no commands defined in the "setup:static-content&am

Hello

 

As one  diagnostic step I have since  tried the CLI  magento command that lists all the commands: php magento list

 

The output is shown below. I have concluded from reviewing this long list that the command: setup:static-content:deploy does not exist!  This situation clearly explains why I am getting the error message.

 

So  my question then is:

 

How can the command setup:static-content:deploy disappear?

is this  disappearance due to a new version or release of Magento from 2.00 to 2.04.

 

I note there "is" a command: sampledata:deploy.  I dont think this command does the same thing as "setup:static-content:deploy".

Any advice/ comments appreciated.      Chris

Re: Error during install of Thene:There are no commands defined in the "setup:static-content&am

Hello,

 

>I am in the process  of attempting to install a magento theme Quckstart package

 

Do you have Magento installed and working before installing custom theme?

 

 

Stanislav

Re: Error during install of Thene:There are no commands defined in the "setup:static-content&am

Hello again Stanislav

 

Thanks for your question.  Yes i have been struggling to understand the install process  that I should follow for Magento 2.

There does not seem to be a consistent process for a supplied Magento 2 theme across vendors .  Perhaps you could comment here?

The  supplied quickstart package contains a working magento2 instance and sample data  so my current approach I am using is as follows:

1) Install Composer

2) Create database

3) import supplied sample data.sql

4) Copy supplied quickstart magento files to a defined Magento 2 root directory

5) Run Composer Install command from the Magento 2 root directory  from a CMD session ( uses composer.json file)

Note: I see the sub-directory called "setup" also has a composer.json file. Should i run composer install from the setup directory as well?

6) I am forced to Ignore  php Magento "setup:static-content: deploy" command because this command does not exist

7) Open browser and go to Magento 2 root directory and run the standard Magento 2 installer. Answer  all the normal prompts

 

The above process fails after I Click "install now" near the end of the Magento 2  Installer screens.

 

I receive a database exception 1022 Cant write , duplicate key in table "mg_store_group"

 

My search of the forums indicates I need to clear the database which is not possible since i will loose the supplied sample data.

What am I doing wrong?  Chris 

 

 

Re: Error during install of Thene:There are no commands defined in the "setup:static-content&am

Hello,

 

>3) import supplied sample data.sql

 

Have you tried to download "Magento 2 with sample data" from:

https://www.magentocommerce.com/download

 

 and install it with web-installer?

 

 

Stanislav

Re: Error during install of Thene:There are no commands defined in the "setup:static-content&am

Hello Stanislav

 

Can you clarify your question. Are you saying I should complete a separate install of Magento 2 that includes the "Magento" supplied sample data just to test the process?  If yes then I have already done this to validate the process for a clean install.

 

What I am not clear on is: Do I need to install a fresh install of Magento 2 "first"   before I copy the quickstart files supplied by the vendor. 

 

This step does not seem intuitive to me because the quickstart package "includes'  a copy of Magento 2 already so I thought all I had to do was to import the vendors supplied database.sql file and run the magento 2 setup wizard that is provided by the vendor supplied Magento 2 instance. 

 

I am trying to avoid having to do a "manual" install of the vendor supplied template files that "does" require a working Magento 2 install because for a newbie the integration is a challenging task. 

 

One recent thing I have learnt from Google is there is now a browser dependency with Magento 2 installs. Certain browsers cause errors . I am using Firefox but will be trying Chrome  as well

 

Any help appreciated. Chris   

Re: Error during install of Thene:There are no commands defined in the "setup:static-content&am

Hello,

 

If you are able to install Magento from official website then you should contact the vendor and ask why the "the quickstart package" does not work.

 

 

Stanislav

Re: Error during install of Thene:There are no commands defined in the "setup:static-content&am

Hello again Stanislav

 

Yes I have already pursued my questions with the developer. The advice provided did allow me to progress but then I was experiencing console errors at the final install. What did solve the console errors problem is:

1). Changing to another browser Chrome - while I "did" clear the browser cache in the previous browser each time,  simply changing browsers stablised the process.

2) Making sure when adding a database prefix (e.g. mg_)  to the vendor provided database MySQL file that the prefix changes  are completed "across  the tables list that spans " multiple pages" I.e. I had nievely been setting up a database prefix for only a limited number of MySQL tables. This issue occurred because I had decided to add a prefix during the setup wizard database

definition process.  

 

As a result of following  the above steps I successfully installed the theme.  Chris
