Drupal 7.0 Shell Execution Script 2011-04-09 23:15:07

Reference link :

#!/usr/bin/env php
$script = basename(array_shift($_SERVER['argv']));

if (in_array('--help', $_SERVER['argv']) || empty($_SERVER['argv'])) {
echo <<<EOF

Execute a Drupal page from the shell.

Usage: {$script} [OPTIONS] "<URI>"
Example: {$script} "http://target.org/node"

All arguments are long options.

--help This page.

--root Set the working directory for the script to the specified path.
To execute Drupal this has to be the root directory of your
Drupal installation, f.e. /home/www/foo/drupal (assuming Drupal
running on Unix). Current directory is not required.
Use surrounding quotation marks on Windows.

--verbose This option displays the options as they are set, but will
produce errors from setting the session.

URI The URI to execute, i.e. http://default/foo/bar for executing
the path '/foo/bar' in your site 'default'. URI has to be
enclosed by quotation marks if there are ampersands in it
(f.e. index.php?q=node&foo=bar). Prefix 'http://' is required,
and the domain must exist in Drupal's sites-directory.

If the given path and file exists it will be executed directly,
i.e. if URI is set to http://default/bar/foo.php
and bar/foo.php exists, this script will be executed without
bootstrapping Drupal. To execute Drupal's cron.php, specify
http://default/cron.php as the URI.

To run this script without --root argument invoke it from the root directory
of your Drupal installation with


// define default settings
$cmd = 'index.php';
$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] = 'default';
$_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] = '/index.php';
$_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'] = 'console';

// toggle verbose mode
if (in_array('--verbose', $_SERVER['argv'])) {
$_verbose_mode = true;
else {
$_verbose_mode = false;

// parse invocation arguments
while ($param = array_shift($_SERVER['argv'])) {
switch ($param) {
case '--root':
// change working directory
$path = array_shift($_SERVER['argv']);
if (is_dir($path)) {
if ($_verbose_mode) {
echo "cwd changed to: {$path}\n";
else {
echo "\nERROR: {$path} not found.\n\n";

if (substr($param, 0, 2) == '--') {
// ignore unknown options
else {
// parse the URI
$path = parse_url($param);

// set site name
if (isset($path['host'])) {
$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] = $path['host'];

// set query string
if (isset($path['query'])) {
$_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'] = $path['query'];
parse_str($path['query'], $_GET);

// set file to execute or Drupal path (clean urls enabled)
if (isset($path['path']) && file_exists(substr($path['path'], 1))) {
$_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] = $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] = $path['path'];
$cmd = substr($path['path'], 1);
elseif (isset($path['path'])) {
if (!isset($_GET['q'])) {
$_REQUEST['q'] = $_GET['q'] = $path['path'];

// display setup in verbose mode
if ($_verbose_mode) {
echo "Hostname set to: {$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']}\n";
echo "Script name set to: {$cmd}\n";
echo "Path set to: {$_GET['q']}\n";

if (file_exists($cmd)) {
include $cmd;
else {
echo "\nERROR: {$cmd} not found.\n\n";
