Okay, y’all. A bit of a nerdtown departure from the usual.
I was recently trying to install drush on a shared DreamHost server, which I know is 100% possible because I’ve done it. But I could not remember how I did it and I had to stitch together like 13 different instructions and it made me literally curl up in a ball on my bed.
So, here is my personal guide to installing drush on a shared DreamHost server. (Updated 11/20/15 for PHP 5.6)
