Bug Description

$ sudo wp option update home "http://localhost" --allow-root
PHP Notice: Undefined index: HTTP_HOST in phar:///data/local/bin/wp/php/WP_CLI/Runner.php(1070) : eval()'d code on line 10
Neither <b>/etc/wordpress/config-.php</b> nor <b>/etc/wordpress/config-.php</b> could be found. <br/> Ensure one of them exists, is readable by the webserver and contains the right password/username.


The following code should be added to /usr/share/wordpress/wp-config.php so as to facilitate wp-cli usage, as delineated here: https://make.wordpress.org/cli/handbook/common-issues/#php-notice-undefined-index-on-_server-superglobal

if ( defined( 'WP_CLI' ) && WP_CLI && ! isset( if ( defined( 'WP_CLI' ) && WP_CLI && ! isset( $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] ) ) {
    $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] = 'wp-cli.org';
