VIP-CLI commands

VIP-CLI enables users to accomplish a wide variety of tasks including:

Running WP-CLI commands with VIP-CLI

WP-CLI is a powerful and extensible way to interact with WordPress from the command line.

On VIP, WP-CLI commands must be run in the command line with VIP-CLI. Not all WP-CLI commands can be run against a VIP environment.

In addition to the commands provided by WP-CLI , it is possible to write custom WP-CLI commands to accomplish tasks specific to the needs of an application on VIP.

There is a limit of 4 CLI commands that can be run on a VIP environment concurrently. This limit applies whether the environment is a WordPress single site or a WordPress multisite.

A logged history of all Completed, Running, Cancelled or Errored WP-CLI commands can be viewed in the WP-CLI Commands panel in the VIP Dashboard.
