PhpStorm 2023.2 Help

PHP Command Line Tool Support: WP-CLI

The dialog opens when you click the Add button and choose WP-CLI in the PHP Command Line Tool Support dialog. Use the dialog to configure WP-CLI support in PhpStorm.

In this dialog, enable the use of WordPress Content Management System in the command line mode by specifying the way to launch WordPress.



Installed via PHAR

Choose this option to launch WordPress through a PHP script or have PhpStorm detect and start the launcher in the wp-cli.phar archive.

  • PHP Interpreter: In this field, choose one of the configured local or remote PHP interpreters, through which the tool commands will be executed. For more information about configuring PHP interpreters, refer to Configure local PHP interpreters and Configure remote PHP interpreters.

  • Path to phar: In this field, specify the location of the wp-cli.phar archive.

Executable available (installed via Composer, etc.)

Choose this option to launch WordPress through an executable file, which is available when you install WordPress using a package management tool, for example, Composer.

Path to wp

In this field, specify the location of the wp.bat or wp executable file. If you used Composer, the default location is \vendor\wp\cli\bin\wp or \vendor\wp\cli\bin\wp.bat. Type the path manually or click the Browse button and choose the desired location in the dialog that opens.
