Create a file e.g root_magento_dir/pub/example_file.php. Paste this code in your file.

include(__DIR__ . '/../app/bootstrap.php');

use Magento\Framework\App\Bootstrap;

$bootstrap = Bootstrap::create(BP, $_SERVER);
$objectManager = $bootstrap->getObjectManager();
$state = $objectManager->get('\Magento\Framework\App\State');

$resourceConnection = $objectManager->get('\Magento\Framework\App\ResourceConnection');
$connection = $resourceConnection->getConnection();
$connection->query('update tablename set name="Test" where id="4"');


Run this file via URL https://www.example.com/example_file.php Or you can run it directly via Shell cd path/to/pub/directory && php example_file.php.

Thank you.

  • You can remove that die if you want, It's just a script therefore it doesn't matter if we kill it at the end. I've used that die just to indicate that script has done it's work Dec 1, 2021 at 12:23
  • But don't forget to delete this script after your work is done because this could be accessed via URL and it makes our site vulnerable for hackers. Dec 1, 2021 at 12:24

Update increment version in module.xml like setup_version="1.0.1", make sure in db setup_module table data should be 1.0.0 and add below code in upgradeData.php


namespace Namespace\Module\Setup;
use Magento\Framework\Setup\UpgradeDataInterface;
use Magento\Eav\Setup\EavSetup;
use Magento\Eav\Setup\EavSetupFactory;
use Magento\Framework\Setup\ModuleContextInterface;
use Magento\Framework\Setup\ModuleDataSetupInterface;
use Magento\Eav\Model\Entity\Attribute\ScopedAttributeInterface;

class UpgradeData implements UpgradeDataInterface
    private $eavSetupFactory;

    public function __construct(EavSetupFactory $eavSetupFactory)
        $this->eavSetupFactory = $eavSetupFactory;

    public function upgrade(ModuleDataSetupInterface $setup, ModuleContextInterface $context) {
        $eavSetup = $this->eavSetupFactory->create(['setup' => $setup]);

        if (version_compare($context->getVersion(), "1.0.1", "<")) {
              $table = $setup->getTable('test');
              $setup->getConnection()->update($table, ['name' => 'test123'], 'id IN (1)');
