SOLVED Terminal Questions re LAMP App


  • I'm just starting out with Cloudron.

    • Is it possible to use Git inside the Web Terminal?
    • Is it a problem to access a shell by ssh'ing into root and running:
    docker container exec -it <container id> /bin/bash
    

    Thx

    @Shai Welcome on board 🙂

    git should be available in web terminal. Try to clone using https though instead of ssh. I am guessing ssh clone will fail because there are no ssh keys (and the containers currently have no provision to add/persist them).

    As for, docker container exec, it's fine but on Cloudron it's better to use the CLI tool. Please see https://docs.cloudron.io/custom-apps/cli/. Important: this is on your PC/Mac and not on the server.

    • sudo npm install -g cloudron
    • cloudron login my.example.com
    • cloudron list and cloudron exec --app app.example.com.

  • @girish Thanks so much for the great answers.

    I look forward to installing the cloudron cli on my computer running Linux Mint 🤠 .
