Using WP CLI

WP-CLI commands can be run directly from the command line without needing to SSH into the Docker container.

Change to a location in the site directory you wish to run the command against, and run the wp command as normal.

wp command-to-run --flags

To run a WP-CLI command with Xdebug enabled, add the --xdebug flag to your command:

wp command-to-run --flags --xdebug

WP-CLI will be run using the version of PHP defined in the site-specific configuration file, or the global PHP default if no site-specific configuration exists. To override the default PHP version, add the --php flag, specifying the PHP version like so:

wp command-to-run --flags --php=5.6

The php flag can be used along with the xdebug flag if needed.
