Please tell me what I'm doing wrong. I'm unable to run drush, see error below:

[~/public_html/d8]# drush -d status

I'm using:

  • Drush Version : 6.0-rc4
  • drupal 8.0.0-beta7
  • PHP 5.4.38
  • MySQL 5.5.42-37.1

1 Answer 1


Drush 6.x only works with Drupal 6 or 7, upgrade to Drush 7.x.


  • ah thank you. i made the mistake of installing drush 8.x-6.0-rc4 to match drupal 8
