WP Tools is a collection of shell commands for maintaining WordPress databases.
To run the shell, simply run
wp-tools from the command line and pass the
location of your WordPress installation as the
-w argument along with a
$ wp-tools <command> -w /path/to/wordpress
help: Display help
move: Move WP database entries to a new domain
clean-orphans: Remove old, unused metadata
WordPress hardcodes all of its urls, making it difficult to move databases
between environments. This command helps alleviate that pain by performing all
of the repetitive database tasks for you.
Often times you can end up with extra cruft in your
postmeta table. This
command will run through and remove any post meta that doesn’t belong to an
existing post anymore.
