Setting up a new WordPress instance and I noticed this error when I downloaded core.
[[email protected] html]$ sudo -u apache wp core download [sudo] password for jbusch: Downloading WordPress 5.3.2 (en_US)... Warning: Failed to create directory '/usr/share/httpd/.wp-cli/cache/': mkdir(): Permission denied. md5 hash verified: ec7fcc299de72d4914a688ea34c96f37 Success: WordPress downloaded.
So prior to setting up a site, you need to create the directory and give permission to apache
# create a cache folder for wp-cli and give ownership to apache sudo mkdir -p /usr/share/httpd/.wp-cli/cache/ sudo chown -R apache:apache /usr/share/httpd/.wp-cli/

@JaredBusch yeah, it's annoying that WP-CLI struggles with that.
