I am using a localhost wamp server and have downloaded a theme, I have copied the zip file to my root folder and extracted as per the guide at https://zemez.io/magento/support/knowledge-base/step-3-upload-app-folder/ A bit unsure how to run commands using a wamp server

I need to do the following

bin/magento setup:upgrade
bin/magento index:reindex
bin/magento cache:clean

Bit of a novice sure not sure what to do, am I correct in thinking the path would be.

c:\wamp64\www\Magento\bin/magento setup:upgrade


C:\Users\mark>wamp64\www\Magento\bin/magento setup:upgrade

Any help would be appreciated.

  • navigate to your magento root directory using "cd" and then execute "bin/magento setup:upgrade" Oct 25, 2019 at 11:18

Navigate to the root directory of the Magento.

You should be in the root directory of the Magento or in bin directory to run the Magento CLI commands.

You can use dir command in the terminal in Windows. (In Linux use ls)
