Sets the value of a specific constant or variable defined in wp-config.php file.
- Name of the wp-config.php constant or variable.
- Value to set the wp-config.php constant or variable to.
- Add the value if it doesn’t exist yet. This is the default behavior, override with –no-add.
- Place the value into the wp-config.php file as is, instead of as a quoted string.
- Anchor string where additions of new values are anchored around. Defaults to “/* That’s all, stop editing!”. The special case “EOF” string uses the end of the file as the anchor.
- Where to place the new values in relation to the anchor string.
- Separator string to put between an added value and its anchor string. The following escape sequences will be recognized and properly interpreted: ‘\n’ => newline, ‘\r’ => carriage return, ‘\t’ => tab. Defaults to a single EOL (“\n” on *nix and “\r\n” on Windows).
- Type of the config value to set. Defaults to ‘all’.
- Specify the file path to the config file to be modified. Defaults to the root of the WordPress installation and the filename “wp-config.php”.
# Set the WP_DEBUG constant to true. $ wp config set WP_DEBUG true --raw
