Here are the configuration options, set to the default values, for this recipe's Landofile. If you are unsure about where this goes or what this means we highly recommend scanning the recipes documentation to get a good handle on how the magicks work.
recipe: drupal9 config: php: '8.0' composer_version: '2.2.12' via: apache:2.4 webroot: . database: mysql:5.7 drush: false xdebug: false config: database: SEE BELOW php: SEE BELOW server: SEE BELOW vhosts: SEE BELOW
Note that if the above config options are not enough all Lando recipes can be further extended and overriden.
Choosing a Drupal version
If you've initialized a site with
lando init there is a good chance this is already set correctly. However, definitely make sure you are vibing the correct major version of Drupal as the underlying server config differs.
recipe: drupal10|drupal9|drupal8|drupal7|drupal6 config: php: '7.4'
Choosing a PHP version
You can set
php to any version that is available in our php service.
However, you should consult the Drupal requirements to make sure that the version of
php you choose is actually supported by the version of
drupal you are running.
Here is the recipe config to set the Drupal 9 recipe to use
recipe: drupal9 config: php: '7.4'
Choosing a composer version
You can set
composer_version to any version that is available in our php service.
recipe: drupal9 config: composer_version: '1.10.1'
Choosing a webserver
By default this recipe will be served by the default version of our apache service but you can also switch this to use
nginx. We highly recommend you check out both the apache and nginx services before you change the default
With Apache (default)
recipe: drupal9 config: via: apache
recipe: drupal9 config: via: nginx
Choosing a database backend
By default this recipe will use the default version of our mysql service as the database backend but you can also switch this to use
postgres instead. Note that you can also specify a version as long as it is a version available for use with lando for either
Also note that like the configuration of the
php version you should consult the Drupal requirements to make sure the
version you select is actually supported by the version of Drupal you are using.
Using MySQL (default)
recipe: drupal9 config: database: mysql
recipe: drupal9 config: database: mariadb
recipe: drupal9 config: database: postgres
Using a custom version
recipe: drupal9 config: database: mariadb:10.4
Connecting to your database
Lando will automatically set up a database with a user and password and also set an environment variables called
LANDO INFO that contains useful information about how your application can access other Lando services.
Here is the default database connection information for a Drupal 9 site. Note that the
host is not
database. Also note that you will want to replace
drupal9 if you are using a different major version of Drupal eg
drupal8 for Drupal 8.
database: drupal9 username: drupal9 password: drupal9 host: database # for mysql port: 3306 # for postgres # port: 5432
You can get also get the above information, and more, by using the
lando info command.
Using custom config files
You may need to override our default Drupal config with your own.
If you do this you must use files that exist inside your application and express them relative to your project root as below.
Note that the default files may change based on how you set both
via. Also note that the
server config will be either for
nginx depending on how you set
via. We highly recommend you check out both the apache and nginx if you plan to use a custom
A hypothetical project
Note that you can put your configuration files anywhere inside your application directory. We use a
config directory in the below example but you can call it whatever you want such as
./ |-- config |-- default.conf |-- my-custom.cnf |-- php.ini |-- server.conf |-- index.php |-- .lando.yml
Landofile using custom drupal9 config
recipe: drupal9 config: config: database: config/my-custom.cnf php: config/php.ini server: config/server.conf vhosts: config/default.conf
