Drops into a shell on a service, runs commands

Optionally you can run a command directly against a specific service without dropping into a shell and as a user you specify. If you find yourself running a lot of these commands then set up a tooling route or use some bash aliases. Note that the default service is appserver which may or may not be defined.

Try running lando info from inside your app to get a list of services you can ssh into.


# Drops into a bash shell on the appserver, falls back to sh if bash is unavailable
lando ssh

# Drop into a shell on the database service
lando ssh -s database

# List all the files in the root directory of the appserver
lando ssh -c "ls -ls /"

# Installs the vim package on the web service
lando ssh --service appserver --user root --command "apt-get update && apt install vim -y"


Run lando ssh --help to get a complete list of options defaults, choices, etc.

--command, -c  Run a command in the service
--help         Shows lando or delegated command help if applicable
--service, -s  SSH into this service
--user, -u     Run as a specific user
--verbose, -v  Runs with extra verbosity
