Hi Rafael, 

Wow, that is a very old version! 

We no longer have documentation available for that specific version. However, while new commands have been added, and new options have been added to existing commands, a lot of the core command-line tasks remain unchanged in AtoM 2.x since the early ICA-AtoM days. 

Try entering just php symfony from the root ICA-AtoM installation directory. This should show a list of all available tasks. 

I believe in early versions, the XML export command was still php symfony export:bulk - try running it as follows to see any additional information about the task:
  • php symfony help export:bulk
Hopefully that's the right command! Let us know what you find. 

A couple notes: 

If you are doing this to migrate content to a newer version of AtoM, we strongly recommend following the upgrade process instead. Our wiki has instructions for upgrading to AtoM 2.x from older ICA-AtoM versions - see: 
If you are exporting your metadata to migrate it elsewhere, please note that the AtoM-EAD XML mappings improved significantly in later versions, so you may still want to upgrade before performing your exports!
