When I run any drush command I am getting this line:

/usr/bin/drush: line 129: /usr/bin/php: Success

For example:

[root@061889 ~]# drush
/usr/bin/drush: line 129: /usr/bin/php: Success
[root@061889 ~]# drush cron
/usr/bin/drush: line 129: /usr/bin/php: Success
[root@061889 ~]# drush help
/usr/bin/drush: line 129: /usr/bin/php: Success

I've tried rebooting my VPS but am still getting the same issue. This has been discovered while trying to get past a "Attempting to re-run cron while it is already running" error, in case that has any relevance. But, you've guessed it...

[root@061889 ~]# drush vdel cron_semaphore
/usr/bin/drush: line 129: /usr/bin/php: Success

Any ideas?

  • try running $ which drush, and hit the whole location - something changed in your PHP?

  • Thanks for your help. $ which drush gives /usr/bin/drush. Tried running drush from /usr/bin but getting the same message. Nothing's changed in php. Dunno what you mean by 'hit the whole location', sorry (is this a linux command line term?! Comfortable in command line on Windows, new to Linux command line)

just run

$ /usr/bin/drush

if it runs it means that your symlink to the drush command is wrong

  • Hi, excuse the late reply and thanks for your help... Running /usr/bin/drush gives exactly the same message as in my question
