Bootstrap the ExpressionEngine environment

v1.4.0 2016-01-14 22:38 UTC


This file "bootstraps" the EE environment, so you use the ee() function to access the instance.

Useful for little one off scripts, or cron jobs that need access to the EE environment.


$system_path = '/path/to/system/folder';
include '/path/to/bootstrap-ee2.php';

// cron job to close status of entries older than one year
ee()->db->where('entry_date <', now() - (365*24*60*60))
        ->update('channel_titles', array('status' => 'closed'));

Using with composer

composer require eecli/bootstrap ~1.2
$system_path = '/path/to/system/folder';
include 'vendor/eecli/bootstrap/bootstrap-ee2.php';
