This question already has an answer here:
As stated in this answer Drush needs to find the settings.php file in order to work. My problem is that the settings.php file is indeed in the right folder (and I have navigated to the Drupal root folder before issuing the Drush commands), but it still does not work to update modules with drush. I just get the message that
Command pm-update needs a higher bootstrap level to run. It even states itself that the Drupal settings file is located in
This is the error message:
C:\wamp\www>drush ups Command pm-updatestatus needs a higher bootstrap level to run - you [error] will need to invoke drush from a more functional Drupal environment to run this command. The drush command 'ups' could not be executed. [error] Drush was not able to start (bootstrap) the Drupal database. [error]
I have also followed the instructions in this post, with no luck.
What else can I try?
