I was looking for something like this for my local development environment, but created one instead.
I called it dlwp
!# /bin/bashread -r -p "Is this the root directory? [y/N] " response case $response in [yY][eE][sS]|[yY]) wget https://wordpress.org/latest.tar.gz tar -zxvf latest.tar.gz cd wordpress mv -i * ../ cd .. rm -rf wordpress rm -rf latest.tar.gz echo "done" ;; *) echo "Script stopped." ;; esac
I’m not sure how this actually worked… it had some problems to say the least – just experimenting with Bash scripts at the time, I would not recommend this technique.
Now that I’ve discovered wp-cli, I have a much easier time installing and updating WordPress from the command line.
$ wp core download && wp core install
Of course you will need to provide the proper arguments for the “core install” command but check out the documentation for that. Makes life so easy!
