I was in production mode and was getting an error when trying to go back to default mode

run below commands in sequence.

  • php bin/magento setup:di:compile
  • php bin/magento setup:upgrade
  • php bin/magento cache:clean
  • php bin/magento cache:flush

and then try to det default mode again, it should work now

bin/magento deploy:mode:set default


rm -rf var/view_preprocessed/* var/cache/* pub/static/*
