apache_modules:
  - mod_rewrite

OPTIONS

[--hard]
	Perform a hard flush - update `.htaccess` rules as well as rewrite rules in database. Works only on single site installs.

EXAMPLES

$ wp rewrite flush
Success: Rewrite rules flushed.

wp rewrite structure <permastruct> [--category-base=<base>] [--tag-base=<base>] [--hard]
