While Lando recipes set sane defaults so they work out of the box, they are also configurable.
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: lemp config: php: '7.4' composer_version: '2.2.12' webroot: . database: mysql:5.7 xdebug: false config: server: SEE BELOW php: SEE BELOW database: 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 php version
You can set
php to any version that is available in our php service. However, you should make sure that whatever framework or custom code you write is designed to work with your choice.
The recipe config to set the LEMP recipe to use
5.3 is shown below:
recipe: lemp config: php: '5.3'
Choosing a composer version
You can set
composer_version to any version that is available in our php service.
recipe: lemp config: composer_version: '1.10.1'
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
mariadb or 'postgres' instead. Note that you can also specify a version as long as it is a version available for use with lando for either
If you are unsure about how to configure the
database, we highly recommend you check out the mysql, mariadband 'postgres' services before you change the default.
Using MySQL (default)
recipe: lemp config: database: mysql
recipe: lemp config: database: mariadb
recipe: lemp config: database: postgres
Using a custom version
recipe: lemp config: database: postgres:9.6
Connecting to your database
Lando will automatically set up a database with a user and password and also set an environment variable called
LANDO INFO that contains useful information about how your application can access other Lando services.
The default database connection information for a LEMP site is shown below:
Note that the
host is not
database: lemp username: lemp password: lemp 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 LEMP 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 shown below:
Note that the default files may change based on how you set both
via. Also note that the
server config will be explicitly for
apache. We highly recommend you check out the apache 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-ssl.conf |-- httpd.conf |-- my-custom.cnf |-- php.ini |-- index.php |-- .lando.yml
