Summary: All Seravo sites come with wp-cli preinstalled and configured for easier command-line management.


You can use wp-cli in Vagrant box and Production. Just run this to see all commands:

$ wp --help

Note: You can call wp command anywhere without --path parameter because the environment handles paths for you.

Useful commands

Database export/import (dumping db)

# Dumps the database to a provided filename
$ wp db export your-dump-filename.sql

# Imports the dump file from file
$ wp db import your-dump-filename.sql

Create user

This creates a new administrator user ‘username’ with password ‘newpassword’:

$ wp user create username email --user_pass=newpassword --role=administrator
