A TYPO3 CMS extension that provides a command-line interface (CLI) for setting or unsetting global system settings.

This extension leverages the capabilities of Helmut Hummel's helhum/typo3-console package.


  • TYPO3 v13.x
  • PHP 8.2 or higher
  • Cannot be installed alongside helhum/typo3-console due to conflicts.


Install this extension like any other TYPO3 CMS extension.

For direct installation via TYPO3 Extension Repository (TER), visit: https://extensions.typo3.org/extension/cli_config

For installation using Composer:

composer require t3/cli-config

Important: After installation, make sure to clear all caches to register and activate the newly included Symfony command.

Usage of command configuration:set

Adds a new entry to the TYPO3 CLI command list, allowing configuration adjustments directly from the CLI.


vendor/bin/typo3 configuration:set [options] [--] <path> [<value>]


  • path: The path to the system configuration (e.g., SYS/displayErrors).
  • value: The new value to set for the given configuration path (optional if using --unset).


  • --unset: Removes the entire entry at the specified configuration path.


Setting a value

vendor/bin/typo3 configuration:set SYS/displayErrors 1

Unsetting a value

vendor/bin/typo3 configuration:set --unset SYS/displayErrors

Setting negative numbers

To set a negative number, use -- before the value to prevent the CLI from interpreting it as an option:

vendor/bin/typo3 configuration:set -- SYS/displayErrors -1

Otherwise you will get an error like:

The "-1" option does not exist.
