I am new to Drupal. I am reading a book called Definitive Guide to Drupal 7. I had installed Drush on Windows 7 with Git as well. It was working last week. Since 7.38 is released I tried to update my localhost website for this particular book and I am getting an error. I have googled this problem and I am coming up with some solutions but they are not working for me. I have navigated to the root folder of the Drupal installation in Git before using Drush Up. I have also changed the 'host' value in settings.php to '127.0.0.1'. It was 'localhost' before. I don't know how to fix this. Does anyone know?
Anthony@ANTHONY-PC ~ $ cd c:/wamp/www/definitiveguided7 Anthony@ANTHONY-PC /c/wamp/www/definitiveguided7 (master) $ drush up Command pm-update needs a higher bootstrap level to run - you will [error] need to invoke drush from a more functional Drupal environment to run this command. The drush command 'up' could not be executed. [error] Drush was not able to start (bootstrap) the Drupal database. [error] Hint: This may occur when Drush is trying to: * bootstrap a site that has not been installed or does not have a configured database. In this case you can select another site with a working database setup by specifying the URI to use with the --uri parameter on the command line. See `drush topic docs-aliases` for details. * connect the database through a socket. The socket file may be wrong or the php-cli may have no access to it in a jailed shell. See http://drupal.org/node/1428638 for details.
