Using different Drush versions in containers

Because Acquia Cloud containers support several versions of Drush, Acquia Cloud provides a set of aliases that you can use to access specific Drush major versions for your use.

To run a specific version of Drush, specify the major version in the drush command. For example:

  • Drush 8 - drush8
  • Drush 7 - drush7
  • Drush 6 - drush6

To run the default version of Drush, use the command drush (which in Acquia Cloud containers is currently Drush 8).

Using Drush 9 with your container

Drush 9 is not installed in your Acquia Cloud-supplied container. If you want to use Drush 9 with your application, you must include it as a requirement in your application's composer.json file.
