In a Rush? Install with Drush!

You know how to install Drupal the normal way, but there is a shortcut, if you have drush.

Drush provides a command (site-install) for downloading modules. Drupal, itself, is kept as a project in the modules section of Drupal. So, drush can download it, as well. Installing Drupal can be done with another drush command. Here is how to install Drupal, in 3 easy steps:

Don't Stress Over Local Passwords

Are you working in a multi-server environment, such as local, staging and production? If you don't have User 1 (or some other user) access in your local setup, it's easy to remedy.

Enter drush and its user-password (upwd) command. Changing a password is a cinch, whether you know the existing one or not, if you have drush access to the site, which you hopefully do, on your local development server.

drush upwd <username> --password="<new password>"

Example:

drush upwd admin --password="let-me-in"
