How to install Drupal using Drush command line?

Installing Drupal using web browser is very hectic process. Every time you want to install new Drupal instance, download the latest Drupal version, copy paste it inside your working directory, open the browser and do etc etc etc...

I have a better solution for this.

If you have installed Drush in your machine then follow the below steps. Otherwise go to my this post and first installed Drush after that continue with this post.

You just need to go to your working directory for example (c:/wamp/www Or c:/xampp/htdocs) using your drush command line interface. Then run these two commands one by one.

This command will download drupal 7 inside your working directory.
Note - Make sure your machine is connected with internet.
drush dl drupal-7.x 

In below command, change "YourMySQLUser" with your Mysql username, "RandomPassword" with your Mysql  password and "YourMySQLDatabase" with your database name.
Note - Make sure your create database before running this command.
drush site-install standard --account-name=admin --account-pass=admin --db-url=mysql://YourMySQLUser:RandomPassword@localhost/YourMySQLDatabase

That's All. Your Drupal installation is completed. You don't even need to open any web browser. Just run these two commands and enjoy :)
