# How to install drush properly

I am trying to install drush on my new computer and it's a mess
I'm on Mac Os High Sierra, with Mamp 5.3, PHP 7.2.14

I'm mainly interested in Drupal 7
On my previous computer, it was simple i just had to be on the htdocs folder and type : drush dl to download the latest Drupal 7 release

Now i had to install composer (v1.8.4) and then installed drush using this command : composer require drush/drush:dev-master
I ended up with this version of drush (v9.7.0-dev)
When i type drush dl i get this message :

dl has been deprecated. Please build your site using Composer. Add new projects with composer require drupal/[project-name]. Use https://www.drupal.org/project/composer_generate to build a composer.json which represents the enabled modules on your site.


I'm no advanced user (obviously), i just need drush to have persmission to execute basic commands to install a new drupal 7, install, enable, disable modules..

Here's the result of $PATH Mac:htdocs Mac$ \$PATH
-bash: /Users/Mac/.composer/vendor/bin:/Applications/MAMP/bin/php/php7.2.14/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin: No such file or directory


Thanks

• You should uninstall it. You can just replace it with the current version by running composer require drush/drush. This will install the current version of Drush. But note that with drupal 8, you cannot download modules with Drush anymore, you need to use Composer to download modules now. – Jaypan Mar 26 '19 at 22:21
