I have a Drupal 7 site installed on shared hosting.

And installed Drush:8.1.17 with composer and cgr all is working well except drush up because hosting provider does not support curl or wget on shared accounts.

When I ask them they said that there is no plans for giving permissions on shared account users to curl or wget when I run:

$ drush up  
$ wget nor curl executable found.

$ curl
-jailshell: /usr/bin/curl: Permission denied

Is there another way of using drush up?


Your use case is not supported. You'll have to update locally and then push to your provider.

  • Thank you for the answer! Until this case I made exactly that to every site I am maintaining but for that I try to shortcut the process and shoot myself in the foot :). – NexusStar Nov 15 '18 at 12:20
