WP-CLI is the command-line interface for WordPress. You can update and check WordPress installations, plugins, themes, manage users and much more. It is any developer and site maintainer’s 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 click “tab”!

With WP-CLI you can manage WordPress;

  • Plugins using wp plugin
  • Themes using wp theme
  • Users using wp user
  • Transients using wp transient
  • Object cache using wp cache
  • Core using wp core
  • Cron using wp cron
  • WP Profile & WP Doctor
  • And much more

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

  • Check the full list of WP-CLI commands in our plugin manual: wp help servebolt
  • Manage the WordPress Full Page Cache using wp servebolt html-cache
  • Install the Servebolt recommended database optimizations using wp servebolt db fix
  • Enable WordPress cron to run from our servers directly: wp servebolt cron enable
  • Enable WordPress action scheduler cron to run from our servers directly: wp servebolt action-scheduler cron enable
  • If you are using Accelerated Domains or Servebolt CDN you can use the wp servebolt cache purge command to purge cache.
Cache purge options through Servebolt Optimizer CLI
Cache purge options available through the Servebolt Optimizer plugin

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 option.

Updated and maintained by Servebolt Operations
