WP-CLI is the command-line interface for WordPress. You can update plugins, manage multisite installs, manage users and much more. It is any developer and site maintainers best friend.

WordPress Hosting with WP-CLI preinstalled

All Bolts, in all Servebolt Cloud locations, come with WP-CLI preinstalled. All you need to do is to navigate to the root directory of your WordPress and you’re ready to use it. We have also configured autocomplete, so all you need to do to complete a command is to tab!

With WP-CLI you can manage:

  • Plugins using wp plugin
  • Themes using wp theme
  • Users using wp user
  • Transients using wp transient
  • And much more

If you have our Servebolt Optimizer plugin installed, you can also:

  • Manage the WordPress Full Page Cache using wp servebolt html-cache
  • Install the Servebolt recommended database optimizations using wp servebolt db fix

You can run WP-CLI remotely

All Bolts come with SSH access, this means that you are able to run WP-CLI remotely from your computer or another server for that matter by using the --ssh parameter.

Updates and maintained by Servebolt Operations

Our operations team update and maintain the WP-CLI installation on all Bolts, so you don’t have to worry about it. Check our changelog for updates.
