I try to install Magento 2 and create/configure a new magento project.


  1. Executed command:

    bin/magento setup:install \

    --backend-frontname=backend \
    --amqp-host=rabbitmq \
    --amqp-port= \
    --amqp-user= \
    --amqp-password= \
    --db-host=db \
    --db-name= \
    --db-user=magento \
    --db-password= \
    --http-cache-hosts=varnish:80 \
    --session-save=redis \
    --session-save-redis-host=redis \
    --session-save-redis-port=6379 \
    --session-save-redis-db=2 \
    --session-save-redis-max-concurrency=20 \
    --cache-backend=redis \
    --cache-backend-redis-server=redis \
    --cache-backend-redis-db=0 \
    --cache-backend-redis-port=6379 \
    --page-cache=redis \
    --page-cache-redis-server=redis \
    --page-cache-redis-db=1 \
  2. Executed command >> bin/magento config:set --lock-env web/unsecure/base_url "https://${TRAEFIK_SUBDOMAIN}.${TRAEFIK_DOMAIN}/"

Step 2 failed with the following result:

There are no commands defined in the "config" namespace.

Did you mean one of these?

When executing command php bin/magento list I get a list of available commands in Magento CLI 2.4.1 but the config commands are missing.

I did some research on the internet but couldn't find a solution for this. Can someone please help me to solve this issue.

It seems your installation was not completed, please check if the DB pointed in the setup install command has been populated with all the tables. If the tables are populated you might be missing install timestamp in app/etc/env.php, please check if you have install node populated properly in there, it should be something like below;

'install' => [
        'date' => 'Mon, 14 Jan 2019 15:13:48 +0000'
  • I checked env.php in etc map and indeed the install node is missing.

    I would not know your complete required installation configuration as it is environment-based, but you can get started with a good starting point here - meetanshi.com/blog/install-magento-2-4-via-command-line Commented Jan 18, 2021 at 16:43

For Magento 2 it's mandatory to install first ElasticSearch. After installing elasticsearch the install of Magento 2 went succesfull.
