We are happy to let you know about the latest update to WPI CLI v2.6.0 and that this is available on all cPanel accounts.

Overview

WP-CLI is the command line interface for WordPress, which we use to perform administrative and development tasks in a programmatic way.

This can be used to update plugins, configure installations and other general WordPress tasks all from within the command line without having to log into your website dashboard.

We currently have this interface installed on all of our cPanel hosting servers and the latest v.2.6.0 update brings a few new features we would like to highlight.

Highlights

PHP 8.1 Support

WP-CLI now officially supports PHP 8.1. 

Although PHP 8.1 is not fully supported in WordPress Core yet, all WPI-CLI commands are being tested and development work is being done on 8.1 currently. It's important to keep websites running on the latest PHP versions to remain up to date and receive the best features.

 

Password Application Commands

WP-CLI has also introduced a variety of WordPress password application management commands such as:

  • wp user application-password list
  • wp user application-password get
  • wp user application-password exists
  • wp user application-password update
  • wp user application-password record-usage
  • wp user application-password create
  • wp user application-password delete

These new commands help us to manage passwords in a clean and non-technical manner.
