Managing Production Storage Components
To establish a secure remote connection to your production storage component, use the Nanobox CLI’s
tunnel command. This will bind to a local port and establish a secure tunnel to your live component. You should pass a custom port since port 22 is likely already in use and is reserved for admin users.
Open a Tunnel to Your Storage Component
nanobox tunnel data.storage -p 1234
Connection credentials for the tunnel are provided in your app dashboard under the “Connect” section of your storage component.
Note: Because the tunnel is bound to a port on your local machine,
127.0.0.1 is the host to which you connect.
Connect with SSH or SFTP
Use the tunnel-bound port on your local machine and the tunnel credentials provided in your dashboard to connect with SSH or SFTP.
Network directories are housed in the
/data/var/db/unfs/ directory of your storage component. Directory paths are relative to
ssh -p 1234 email@example.com # You'll be prompted for the password # navigate to a network directory cd /data/var/db/unfs/path/to/dirA
# copy files from your local code filesystem # into to your storage component at the same path scp -P 1234 -r path/to/dirA/* firstname.lastname@example.org:/data/var/db/unfs/path/to/dirA # copy files from your storage component # into to your local code filesystem scp -P 1234 -r email@example.com:/data/var/db/unfs/path/to/dirA/* path/to/dirA # Both commands will prompt for the password
