Configure the store
Log in to the Magento server as, or switch to, a user who has permissions to write to the Magento file system. One way to do this is to switch to the Magento file system owner.
If you use the bash shell, you can also use the following syntax to switch to the Magento file system owner and enter the command at the same time:
su <Magento file system owner> -s /bin/bash -c <command>
If the Magento file system owner does not allow logins you can do the following:
sudo -u <Magento file system owner> <command>
To run Magento commands from any directory, add
<your Magento install dir>/binto your system

cd <your Magento install dir>/binand run them as
./magento <command name>
