Since you have access to a dedicated shell login host, using Drush for Drupal maintenance is easy.
Here is a minimal
<?php $aliases['s123'] = array( 'uri' => 's123.cXX.freistilbox.net', 'root' => '/srv/www/freistilbox/home/s123/current/docroot', 'remote-host' => 'cXXs.freistilbox.net', 'remote-user' => 's123', );
As always, replace the parts for site ID (“s123”) and shell login host (“cXXs”) with the actual values corresponding with your website instance.
Neither the Drupal 8 admin interface nor the Drush
cget command will by default reflect configuration settings made in include files such as our configuration snippets:
$ drush cget syslog.settings identity: drupal facility: '128' ...
To get the actual value of a configuration setting, use the
$ drush cget syslog.settings --include-overridden identity: s1503 facility: '128' ...
