I see the same output regardless which input parameters I pass to wp-cli.

[tosh@server94]$ wp-cli.phar --info
X-Powered-By: PHP/5.4.36
Content-type: text/html

[tosh@server94]$ wp-cli.phar help cache
X-Powered-By: PHP/5.4.36
Content-type: text/html

What is going on?

Update in response to Answer

There seems to be 2 PHP "installations" on my host's server. None of them works, it seems. The first one, with cgi, has the above symptoms. The second one, cli version, outputs nothing.

[userx@server921 jack]$ /usr/bin/php wp-cli.phar --info
X-Powered-By: PHP/5.5.33
Content-type: text/html

[userx@server921 jack]$ /usr/bin/php -v

Try running php wp-cli.phar

EDIT

It looks a little like php on your system isn't setup to use php-cli (it's using php-cgi instead):

try running: php -v

on my machine I get:

PHP 5.5.9-1ubuntu4.14 (cli) (built: Oct 28 2015 01:34:46)

The important bit is where it says (cli) - this means it's the cli, and not cgi version.

  • if you think that is the problem (and you are probably right) just write it as an answer ;) the world will not come to an end if the answer will be wrong – Mark Kaplun Apr 7 '16 at 10:28
