I have a
wp-cli.yml file that defines an alias for a remote host:
@origin: ssh: myserver.example.com path: /path/to/htdocs
This would normally allow me to use
wp @origin command to run remote commands on the other host. In one case, however, the remote host is only visible through an SSH proxy, so my system has an SSH config entry in
Host myserver.example.com ProxyCommand ssh -q -W %h:22 proxyserver.example.com ForwardAgent yes
This instructs it to first connect to the proxy server, then connect from there to destination server. I can log into that box in a single step simply by typing:
$ ssh myserver.example.com
However, when I attempt the same with WP-CLI it doesn't work:
$ wp @origin db export --add-drop-table - Error: Cannot connect over SSH using provided configuration.
I conclude that WP-CLI either doesn't look at my SSH config or doesn't understand the
ProxyCommand directive there.
Is there anything I can add to either the
wp-cli.yml config or the
wp command to make it use a proxy the same way SSH does?
