I am trying to install a module Abcd_Core using the command

sudo php bin/magento setup:upgrade

The output does list all the modules except Abcd_Core. Also the app/etc/config.php does not have Abcd_Core in the array.

Here is what I did..

The module is located at <magento>/app/code/

The file


has the code


In app/code/Abcd/Core/etc folder I have module.xml, di.xml files and a folder adminhtml.


 <?xml version="1.0"?>
 <config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="../../../../../lib/internal/Magento/Framework/Module/etc/module.xsd">
 <module name="Abcd_Core" setup_version="1.0.0" />


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">
<preference for="Magento\Store\Model\Store" type="Abcd\Core\Model\Store" />

The app/code/Abcd/Core/etc/adminhtml folder has routes.xml and system.xml.

There is a file app/code/Abcd/Core/Model/Store.php which overrides the functionality of method getBaseUrl().

I tried cleaning the cache and then running the setup:upgrade several times, also tried

sudo php bin/magento module:enable Abcd_Core

but unable to install/enable the module.

Can anyone provide some input on what needs to be corrected?

FYI, I cloned the files from a git repository in my organization.

Thank you, Hari CL

You also need a composer.json file:

  "name": "Abcd/Core",
  "description": "la",
  "type": "magento2-module",
  "version": "0.0.1",
  "license": [
  "require": {

  "extra": {
    "map": [

Also please clean everything in the var folder and flush the cache. If it still doesn't work, check the var/logs file.

  • Added composer.json with code{ "name": "Abcd/Core", "description": "Abcd Core Module", "type": "magento2-module", "version": "0.0.1", "license": [ "OSL-3.0" ], "require": { }, "extra": { "map": [ [ "*", "Abcd/Core" ] ] }, "autoload": { "files": [ "registration.php" ], "psr-4": { "Abcd\\Core\\": "" } } }

  • Hi Claudiu, I added the composer.json but the issue persists. I tried to install the same module in a new Magento2 installation, and it worked. I think there should be some issue in the code added to the repository
