drush shell scripting interface for Drupal

drush [options] command...

drush is a veritable Swiss Army knife designed to make life easier for those of us who spend some of our working hours hacking away at the command prompt.

Drush core ships with lots of useful commands for interacting with code like modules/themes/profiles. Similarly, it runs update.php, executes sql queries and
DB migrations, and misc utilities like run cron or clear cache.

r path, root=path
Drupal root directory to use (default: current directory)

l uri, uri=uri
URI of the drupal site to use (only needed in multisite environments)

v level, verbose=level
Display extra information about the command.

q, quiet
Hide all output

d, debug
Display even more information, including internal messages.

y, yes
Assume 'yes' as answer to all prompts

s, simulate
Simulate all relevant actions (don't actually change the system)

i, include
A list of paths to search for drush commands

c file, config=file
Specify a config file to use. See example.drushrc.php

u user, user=user
Specify a user to login with. May be a name or a number.

b, backend
Hide all output and return structured data (internal use only).

p, pipe
Emit a compact representation of the command for scripting.

If you get tired of typing options all the time, you can add them to your drush.php alias or create a drushrc.php file. These provide additional options for
your drush call. They provide great flexibility for a multi site installation, for example. See example.drushrc.php.

Drush is all based around "commands" that are usually defined in various modules. This manual only lists the builtin commands shipped with the Drush core,
but other modules may extend this list. See the help command to see the up to date list. The list of available comands may also vary based on the state of
the Drupal accessed by drush (if it's installed, offline, working or not, which modules are installed, etc).

help Print the help message. Use filter to limit command list to one command file (e.g. filter=pm).

cron Run all cron hooks.

Execute the update.php process from the command line

status Provides a birds eye view of the current Drupal installation, if any.

script Run php script(s).

Drush was originally developed by Arto for Drupal 4.7 (this alpha code can still be found in the DRUPAL 4 7 branch). In May 2007, it was partly rewritten and
redesigned for Drupal 5 by frando. Since 2008, the module has been maintained by Moshe Weitzman, Owen Barton and Adrian Rossouw.

This manual page was written by Antoine Beaupre , for the Debian project (but may be used by others).
