Install WordPress and a customized version of FoundationPress

Script Location

Save this .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, joshsmith01/Scripts/. Easy!

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/". 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 .bash-profile file:

export MAMP_PHP=/Applications/MAMP/bin/php/php5.6.6/bin export PATH="$MAMP_PHP:$PATH:/Applications/MAMP/Library/bin/" alias wpinstall="~/Scripts/wpinstall/"

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.

Install WP-CLI

You'll also need to install WP-CLI. You can do that from here.
