docker-compose execEstimated reading time: 1 minute
Usage: exec [options] [-e KEY=VAL...] SERVICE COMMAND [ARGS...] Options: -d, --detach Detached mode: Run command in the background. --privileged Give extended privileges to the process. -u, --user USER Run the command as this user. -T Disable pseudo-tty allocation. By default `docker-compose exec` allocates a TTY. --index=index index of the container if there are multiple instances of a service [default: 1] -e, --env KEY=VAL Set environment variables (can be used multiple times, not supported in API < 1.25)
This is the equivalent of
docker exec. With this subcommand you can run arbitrary
commands in your services. Commands are by default allocating a TTY, so you can
use a command such as
docker-compose exec web sh to get an interactive prompt.
