Accessing files and CLI inside of container deployment in lightsail


Hello! I've just deployed my first container in lightsail.

I'm getting some internal errors and some services and files inside the container need configuring.

Problem is, for me to configure something and check if it works, I need to do it locally, then build the container, then push it to lightsail, which is a lengthy process.

What I want to do is, like on my local docker machine, get a CLI inside the container. That'll help configure services, as well as check the logs, but I can't seem to find a way to do that.

Is there a way to access a CLI and the files inside the container?

As I understand, you would like to know if there is a way to access a CLI and the files inside a container in Lightsail. Based on the details in your post, I checked with an internal team and getting a terminal session on a running container compute node is currently not supported. Sincere apologies for this, and the inconvenience this might have caused. Please feel free to let us know if there are any further questions.
