I'm trying to get
ssh to automatically change to a particular directory when I log in. I tried to get that behaviour working using the following directives in
Host example.net LocalCommand "cd web"
but whenever I log in, I see the following:
/bin/bash: cd web: No such file or directory
although though there is definitely a
web folder in my home directory. Even using an absolute path gives the same message. To be clear, if I type
cd web after logging in I get to the right folder.
What am I missing here?
Different combinations of quotes/absolute paths give different error messages:
LocalCommand "cd web" /bin/bash: cd web: No such file or directory LocalCommand cd web /bin/bash: line 0: cd: web: No such file or directory LocalCommand cd /home/gareth/web /bin/bash: line 0: cd: /home/gareth/web: Input/output error
This makes me think that the quotes shouldn't be there, and that there's another error happening.
