My group does not have command line access to the machine that is running our WordPress instance. However, we would still like to install/update using Subversion. Is this possible? Also, does Subversion need to be on the same machine?
I have to run a PHP script through real cron (WP cron being too unreliable). Within that script, I need $wpdb to insert data into WordPress table. But of course $wpdb will not be available as WordPress would not be initialized. Right? So, my question is how to ‘include’ WordPress/initialize WordPress environment to do such […]
I have a command line script for maintaining a wordpress plugin and have to determine the wordpress base path to be able to load the wordpress core. I could just assume the script is several levels under the base path. But if I want to reuse the code and I have another similar script that […]
I have a few multisites, each with several sites, that I want to auto-generate @aliases for. Is there way to sync those sites as aliases in my site list?

Is it possible to export WordPress from command line? I don’t mean use mysqldump to export the database, but create the xml file used to easily import to another WordPress installation.
Normally, a MySQL database can be exported and imported using these simple SSH commands: Export: mysqldump -u USERNAME -p DATABASE_NAME > filename.sql Import: mysql -u USERNAME -p DATABASE_NAME < filename.sql But it’s not that simple when it comes to WordPress. From what I see, additional parameters need to mentioned, such as –add-drop-table for instance. The […]
Disclaimer: I am new to WordPress. When I add categories to my blogging site, where/how are these categories stored?
