You can install the package via composer:

You can publish the config file with:

php artisan vendor:publish --tag="remote-config"

This is the contents of the published config file:

return [
     * This host will be used if none is specified
     * when executing the `remote` command.
    'default_host' => 'default',
    * When set to true, A confirmation prompt will be shown before executing the `remote` command.
    'needs_confirmation' => env('REMOTE_NEEDS_CONFIRMATION', false),

     * Here you can define the hosts where the commands should be executed.
    'hosts' => [
        'default' => [
            'host' => env('REMOTE_HOST'),

            'port' => env('REMOTE_PORT', 22),

            'user' => env('REMOTE_USER'),

             * The package will cd to the given path before executing the given command.
            'path' => env('REMOTE_PATH'),
             * Optional. Path to the private key on your computer if your remote server requires it.
            'privateKeyPath' => env('REMOTE_PRIVATE_KEY_PATH'),
             * Optional. Path to the php binary on your remote server.
            'phpPath' => env('REMOTE_PHP_PATH', 'php'),


To execute a command on the remote server use the remote Artisan command. You can pass any artisan command that you would like to execute on the server.

Here's an example where we clear the cache.

php artisan remote cache:clear

Executing raw commands

If you want to execute a bash command, use the --raw option.

Here we will get a list of files on the server.

php artisan remote ls --raw

Using another host

You can define hosts in the config file. By default, the default host is used. To execute a command on another host use the --host option.

php artisan remote cache:clear --host=my-other-host

Using options in remote commands

If you need to use flags or options in the command you're trying to execute, you can wrap the entire command in quotes:

php artisan remote --raw "ls -a"


composer test
