Dokku commands can be run over ssh. Anywhere you would run
dokku <command>, just run
ssh -t firstname.lastname@example.org <command>
-t is used to request a pty. It is highly recommended to do so.
To avoid the need to type the
-t option each time, simply create/modify a section in the
.ssh/config on the client side, as follows:
Dokku also supports certain command-line arguments that augment it's behavior. If using these over ssh, you must use the form
ssh -t email@example.com -- <command>
in order to avoid ssh interpretting Dokku arguments for itself.
You may optionally use a client to connect to your Dokku server. Most clients use the configured
git remote to locate the Dokku server, though some allow for overriding this via an environment variable or flag.
Please refer to the clients list for more details.
