A very short post, just to remind me of some Drush commands

Installing Modules

1. Login via SSH, and go to the folder in which you want to install your module. e.g public_html/sites/all/modules

Use the Drush download command to install one or more modules

drush dl views date fckeditor

This will install the views, date and fckeditor modules

Installing a specific branch of a module

drush dl date-6.x-2.x-dev

This will install that specific branch of date (it’s the one with the fix in it for PHP 5.3), disregarding any other versions of the module

To view the current installed status of all modules

drush -sy up

Other commands
