       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.

       variable-set (vset)
              Set a variable.

       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.

       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 Beaupré <> in June 2009 for  the
       Debian project (but may be used by others).
