Install WordPress and a customized version of FoundationPress
.sh file to your scripts directory. If you don't have a scripts directory make one. I had to make one and I called it
Scripts I placed it in my home folder,
Edit Hidden Files
Next, you'll probably want to invoke this script with a simple one-line command in your Terminal so you'll have to make some more changes. You have a hidden file called
~/.bash_profile, go to that. You might need to view hidden files. You'll have to add an alias like so:
alias wpinstall="~/Scripts/wpinstall/wpinstall.sh". Now you just type that alias in Terminal and you'll be set.
While you're in
.bash-profile you'll most likely need to make some other changes. You'll have to adjust where this script and the WP-CLI reads your PHP and the "
PATH" from on your machine. Here are the three lines from my
export MAMP_PHP=/Applications/MAMP/bin/php/php5.6.6/bin export PATH="$MAMP_PHP:$PATH:/Applications/MAMP/Library/bin/" alias wpinstall="~/Scripts/wpinstall/wpinstall.sh"
By the way, this is all that is in this file.
You have a PATH that your machine uses as a starting point for a lot of things. One of those things is the location of the PHP version you're going to use. I have MAMP installed and use that as my server. I have also created a custom location for my server directory instead of the
/htdocs/ that MAMP has as a default. The PATH can be referenced as $PATH. Replace my path to my PHP with your path to yours.
You'll also need to install WP-CLI. You can do that from here.
