Mobile Tools Module and Drush

Today I ran into an issue where running the command:

drush status

ended with this error:

Drush command terminated abnormally due to an unrecoverable error..

Not sure what was causing this problem so I turned to Google and came across this post: This comment,, mentioned that they were using mobile tools, which I was, and when they disabled it, drush began working again. Unfortunately, this website was relying pretty heavily on mobile tools, and therefore I couldn't just disable that module.

The Fix

The fix I used was found here: By using drush with the -l flag and entering the full url, my drush began working correctly.

I believe what happens is that when drush loads the site, the mobile tools module tries to redirect the drush script to the mobile site. By using the -l flag, it prevented the redirect from happening.
