Managed WordPress Help

Use WP-CLI to manage your site

You can control your Managed WordPress account through WP-CLI (WordPress Command Line Interface). If you're proficient with command line interfaces, this can be a much simpler way to get around WordPress.

  1. Access your Managed WordPress account via SSH (more info).

    Note: For Pro Managed WordPress accounts (available in U.S.A. and Canada only), skip the next step and continue with Step 3.

  2. Change to your account's html directory using the following command:
    cd html
  3. Run the WP-CLI application using the following command:
    wp

You can find a full list of commands on the WP-CLI site

Example Commands

Action Command
Update all plugins wp plugin update --all
Update all themes wp theme update --all
Repair your database wp db repair
