Export Magento Settings cover

One of the great features of Magento 2 is exporting settings to files

Making the store configs locked, preventing an eventual change error

And it also makes it easier to migrate stores, whether for a team dev or for deployment.

This is because most of the time these settings do not usually change, such as: country, store currency, etc.

So the first step after installing Magento  is to completely configure the store settings in Stores | Configuration | General | General

And then type the following command in the terminal:

bin/magento app:config:dump

Ready, all your settings will be exported to env.php and config.php files

Which are in the app/etc directory

Now the store fields will be locked, and changes must be made via file

To import the changes made later, enter the following command:

bin/magento app:config:import

And the settings will be persisted in the bank, consequently in the administrative area too
