I'm on the final two sites to migrate to D9 - but some D9 modules are now needing PHP 8.1 to stay on the latest upgrades. So - I've changed my server environment to use PHP 8.1 - and using XAMPP for Windows 11 - on PHP 8.1.6 - as per the Drupal.org PHP recommendation.

Only issue is - I'm now unable to use drush to update my remaining D7 sites. Has anybody got this to work on Windows 11 - using XAMPP or similar?

$   drush.php.bat ups

to run this command.

  • Drush 8 should work on PHP 8.1.. Check the configuration-- it's possible that you are running Drush from one PHP, and the Drupal site from another. One way to fix issues like this permanently is to use a Docker-based tool like ddev or lando that gives you siloed containers per-site. Apr 21, 2023 at 10:13
  • It is interesting to hear that XAMPP is still being used.

    Drop XAMPP, it's yesteryear's technology. Get DDEV and you will get used to it really fast and never have to worry about this kind of stuff again, because DDEV simply comes with everything you need aboard. It also works nicely with D7.

  • I haven’t used XAMPP since 2014 or 2015. You’re stuck in the Stone Age of local dev tech.

  • I support the DDEV suggestions, but you could try to understand what is going on by adding the -vvv option.
