Bash Shell users can use the following syntax to switch to the Magento file system owner and enter the commands simultaneously.

su <Magento file system owner> -s /bin/bash -c <command>

Use the following command if you don’t have the Magento file system owner logins::

sudo -u <Magento file system owner> <command>

To run Magento commands from any directory, add <magento_root>/bin to your system PATH.

bin/magento list

Get the help for particular commands, enter the following command:
