After the minimum requirements, we will download wp-cli.phar file using curl or wget:
$ curl -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/wp-cli/builds/gh-pages/phar/wp-cli.phar
Now, check the downloaded file is working with the following command:
$ php wp-cli.phar --info
Now we have downloaded and checked wp-cli.phar. Now we will change the permissions to executable and move it to /usr/local/bin or /usr/bin that depends on our path. We will rename the file to wp so it would be easy to use. For me the is /usr/bin:
$ chmod +x wp-cli.phar
$ mv wp-cli.phar /usr/bin/wp
Once you have moved the file to the /usr/bin now let’s check it again:
$ wp --info PHP binary: /usr/bin/php PHP version: 5.6.31 php.ini used: /etc/php.ini WP-CLI root dir: phar://wp-cli.phar WP-CLI vendor dir: phar://wp-cli.phar/vendor WP_CLI phar path: /root WP-CLI packages dir: WP-CLI global config: WP-CLI project config: WP-CLI version: 1.3.0
