Hi @daschenbrener

 

You may try solution listed on following link Magento 2: Fixing Area code Not Set Exceptions.

 

How did you install your existing Magento 2 setup? Did you use composer? (http://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.1/release-notes/tech_bull_21-upgrade.html#tb-upgr-nosamp)

 

Do you have sample data installed on your existing Magento 2 setup?

Re: Area code not set: Area code must be set before starting a session

The install was a bitnami setup, no sample data installed.

 

And yes I tried that patch also with no different result

 

and please forgive my ignorance, where would i go to apply that fix , or to try it to see if it will fix.

 

public function __construct(
    \Magento\Framework\App\State $appState,
    $name=null
)
{
    $appState->setAreaCode('frontend');
    parent::__construct($name);
}

 

Thanks in advance 

Re: Area code not set: Area code must be set before starting a session

Hi @daschenbrener

 

You may try following commands on Magento root directory.

 

php bin/magento sampledata:reset

 

 

And then re-run:

php bin/magento setup:upgrade

Please see following post http://stackoverflow.com/a/35330389 , it may help.

Re: Area code not set: Area code must be set before starting a session

In the model/helper that you execute in your custom CLI require it in __construct() and save to class property:

protected $_appState;

public function __construct(\Magento\Framework\App\State $appState ) {
$this->_appState = $appState;
}

and then in the main execution method of this model (not directly in the __construct()) you set the area code with:

 

$this->_appState->setAreaCode('adminhtml');
