I am almost 100% certain I did restart it but I just did it now and it seems to have resolved the issue. I am able to connect now. I see an html link inside the home folder but it doesn’t seem to work. Should it work with EE docker setup? Also, could I ask you one last thing? I am really thankful for all your help by the way. Can you tell me how to generate a separate key for www-data while setting this up? I would rather that user have a different key than the root user if possible.
I assume the issue is that it is pointing to
/var/www/html but EE4 uses
/var/lib/docker/volumes/examplecom_htdocs/_data for the WP content.
Docker stores everything in
/var/lib/docker but when you run a container, it uses its own filesystem. If you’re not seeing anything in the ssh container html symlink then you probably didn’t mount your site’s volumes via
docker run -d --rm \ --name ssh \ -v ssh:/home/www-data/.ssh \ --volumes-from php-container \ -p 2222:22 \ demyx/ssh
You can replace the pub keys in the ssh container’s authorized-keys.
# First generate your key on your host ssh-keygen -t ed25519 -C "SSH Container" # Then copy your new pub key docker cp ~/.ssh/id_ed25519.pub ssh:/home/www/.ssh/authorized_keys # Restart container docker restart ssh
And then finally download the id_ed25519 and id_ed25519.pub to your computer/laptop using your root account so you can sftp to the ssh container
Okay, I understand that and I did use
--volume-from devcfimortgagecom_php_1 / but when I try to access the html syslink and get the below error.
Error: Directory /var/www/html: no such file or directory Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing
Hmm weird, I haven’t used EEv4 in a long time so maybe they’re not using the default PHP location. Try finding the WP files:
docker exec -it ssh find / -name "wp-config.php"
There it is, just change your SFTP client directory to
Any way during the install of your docker to tell it where to point the syslink?
As long as the container doesn’t go down, this symlink will stay there. A more permanent solution is to rebuild my image using my Dockerfile but that’s a whole another story.
docker exec -it ssh ln -s /var/www /home/www-data
Ahh, well thank you for everything! I am sure you have more important things to do than to help a n00b figure all this stuff out.
The docker commands I’ve posted are just the surface of Docker, feel free to learn more from their docs page.
