Installing Drush On Any Linux Based Server Out There

NOTICE: Drush no longer supports installation via pear. As a result, some of this content is out of date. Please refer to the official documentation for installing Drush via composer.

Ok, so I am just conveying my experience in installing the quintessential tool that is drush. I work at Kalamuna and I provide support to a majority of our clients. I am constantly having to move sites around from server to server, platform to platform, etc.

Drush and Hooks

i have installed the ldap module, which makes it possible to sync a user with active directory, when a user is created or updated.
When creating a user through the user administration, the sync is performed perfectly. But i'm trying to create a script, which can fetch all users from ldap and create them afterwards. But when created, the "sync" with ldap is not done. Are hooks not triggered, when using: drush script ?

Why are some fields missing from an export from drush but not from the UI?


  • Have a views data export display
  • Output is fine when using Drupal UI
  • Output is missing Field UI fields when using Drush

Field Permissions Installed

  • Drush runs views data export as anonymous user causing view to not retrieve fields the user does not have access to because of field permissions.
  • Drush may be run as a different user with the user argument: drush --user=1 vde

Reference to EntityReference Field Migration


This module converts references fields (from references module) to entity reference fields. A batch task will be issued (per field) to create a temporary table, store the reference values, delete the reference field, create a new
entity reference field, and copy over the values from the temporary table.


There are 2 possible ways to convert fields:


Go to admin/content/migrate-references, select the fields you wish to convert, and click confirm.


Type 'drush entityreference-migrate-references' (or 'drush emr') to convert all fields. You may provide a field machine name as an argument to convert on a field-by-field basis.


Before starting any conversion, there are a few recommended tasks.


  1. Create a where-used list of fields, widgets and formatters, using:
