Fix Easy Engine or WP-CLI Error When Adding New WordPress 4.4 Site

Easy Engine is one of the most useful tools for managing WordPress on unmanaged VPS. You can just execute a single command to add a new WordPress site, and then point your domain to the server’s IP address and everything is done. This tool uses wp-cli to install the WordPress engine, which is also a powerful tool.

I got an error when adding a new WordPress site with Easy Engine. The problem is in the wp-cli, the installed version is not compatible with the WordPress 4.4.

Here’s my installation error log.

Command Output: ,

There seems to be a problem with the embed-functions.php. : D

Here’s how to fix the error wp-cli: Update the wp-cli!

sudo wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/wp-cli/builds/gh-pages/phar/wp-cli.phar -O /usr/bin/wp

That’s it.
Good luck!
