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, --verbose
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)

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

-h, --help
A detailed help system, use drush help help for complete help.

Show drush version.

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


Drush is all based around "commands" that are usually defined in various modules.

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

cache-clear (cc)
Clear a specific cache, or all drupal caches.

core-cli (cli)
Enter a new shell optimized for Drush use.

core-cron (cron)
Run all cron hooks.

core-status (st)
Provides a birds-eye view of the current Drupal installation, if any.

php-eval (eval)
Evaluate arbitrary php code after bootstrapping Drupal.

updatedb (updb)
Apply any database updates required (as with running update.php).

variable-get (vget)
Get a list of some or all site variables and values

variable-set (vset)
Set a variable.

watchdog show
Shows recent watchdog log messages. Optionally filter for a specific type.

pm-enable (en)
Enable one or more extensions (modules or themes).

pm-disable (dis)
Disable one or more extensions (modules or themes).

pm-download (dl)
Download projects from drupal.org or other sources.

Uninstall one or more modules.

pm-updatecode (upc)
Update Drupal core and contrib projects to latest recommended releases.

pm-update (up)
Update Drupal core and contrib projects and apply any pending database updates
(Same as pm-updatecode + updatedb).

sql-cli (sqlc)
Open a SQL command-line interface using Drupal's credentials.

A string for connecting to the DB.

Exports the Drupal DB as SQL using mysqldump.

This manual only lists a few of the most frequently used builtin commands shipped with the
Drush core, since other Drupal modules and third-party "command files" may extend this
list significantly. The canonical source of information for the available commands and
their usage is the online help system.

More information on each command is also available through drush help <command>. Most
commands have shortcuts indicated in parenthesis.
