lxdock provision

Command: lxdock provision [name [name ...]]

This command can be used to provision your containers.

By default it will install bare bones packages (openssh, python) into your container if the underlying distribution is supported by LXDock. That said, the provision command can also trigger the execution of provisioning tools that you could’ve configured in your LXDock file (using the provisioning block).


  • [name [name ...]] - zero, one or more container names


$ lxdock provision               # provisions all the containers of the project
$ lxdock provision mycontainer   # provisions the "mycontainer" container
$ lxdock provision web ci        # provisions the "web" and "ci" containers
