My Drush commands doesn't work because my Drupal files are in another directory than the one set in Drush. Everything is set up to this path so I can't just change the folder name.

Drush status
  Drupal root   : /Users/nicklas/Documents/SourceTree/Drupal/web

How can I change the path to /docroot instead of /web?

You can pass it in via the --root argument

drush status --root=/Users/nicklas/Documents/SourceTree/Drupal/docroot

  • Has this command changed in drush 9 ? My local installation doesn't recognise it Aug 19, 2019 at 20:56
  • Mine still works, does it recognize drush at all?
