You have to obtain SSH credentials.

 

Once logged in go to magento root folder and run:

 

php bin/magento deploy:mode:set developer

 

 

Re: how do i change to developer mode on aws lightsail magento?

You can change developer mode from app/etc/env.php file as well.

 

you can run this command as well : php bin/magento deploy:mode:set developer

 

But you must required SSH access with php global environment setup ,so you can run directly commands from your magento 2 root directory.

 

Right now , might be php environment varriable is not set to global level so you are unable to run commands.

You are adding setup before the command , which is wrong.

 

you need to run below command :

 

php bin/magento deploy:mode:set developer

 

what error give , when you run this command ?

Looks like you are not running this command from magento 2 root directory.

 

give me path from where are you running this command ?

 

because you need to run this command from magento 2 root directory so.

Re: how do i change to developer mode on aws lightsail magento?

 

Hey ManthanDave,

 

Okay, so i run it from my SSH from AWS LightSail Instance. 

Ityped in sudo su. then root (root@"my-IP":/home/bitnami#) opens up.

I type in "php bin/magento deploy:mode:set developer" and nothing happens.

 

Should i be doing this through my SSH? or should it be from my file tree where i can enter in code? if so what file path would this go under for me to change developer mode.

 

Thank you. 

 

Re: how do i change to developer mode on aws lightsail magento?

No , you have done it correctly , but you are in wrong directory - /home/bitnami

 

this is /home/bitnami but you need to run this command from your magento2 root directory , where you have installed magento2 in that directory you need to run this command.

 

so after login to this /home/bitnami change directory by cd command and go to your root directory where you have installed magento2 and then run command
