Drupal 8 - Drupal Console - Setting Temporary Path

05.07.2016

Sometimes you might install a brand new Drupal 8 instance, only to find that everything looks completely broken.

A common problem is an incorrectly set temporary path.

You can head to my-site.dev/admin/config/media/file-system and change the value from there. But that’s no fun…

Or, you can use Drupal Console! Jump into your console:

cd /path/to/drupal
drupal config:override system.file path.temporary /tmp

This will set system.file path.temporary in your active configuration to point to /tmp.

That’s a lot more fun!
