I'm setting up my first BackdropCMS website on a hetzner.de managed server (webhosting Level 9).

After having succesfully installed composer

$ composer --version
Composer version 2.0.8 2020-12-03 17:20:38

I issued the command

$ composer global require drush/drush:dev-master

which installed drush into .config/composer/vendor/drush:

$ drush version
 Drush version : 10.3.2-dev

After typing drush I get an error at the bottom of the list with available commands:

! [NOTE] Drupal root not found. Pass --root or a @siteAlias in order to see    
 !        Drupal-specific commands.

I am probably overseeing something very basic, but it's not clear to me how to proceed from here to start a fresh backdrop website project from here.

Once I have this fully figured out, I plan to write a HOWTO for Hetzner clients.


Thanks for your feedback. It helped me over the dead point, as the linked page made me realise I had installed drush10 instead of drush8. It was easy to add the backdrop-drush-extension and after a

$ drush cache-clear drush

I could install a clean backdrop site via

$ drush dlb backdrop --path="./public_html/my-backdrop"
