How to point to xampp php


you need to point xampp php by following command it will work:

or add sudo if you are not root user, becaus its need to generate and delete some files

sudo /opt/lampp/bin/php bin/magento setup:upgrade

  • The new users get confused where the command should run the only thing i have mentioned is ..."Make sure you run the above command in root directory". I am new to it once i get the your command i read it somewhere else so i feel it could be helpful to new users like me.. – Homesh Paul Sep 22 '19 at 8:06
