While container developing or deploying we often need to look inside a running container to examine its current state or correct a problem. For this, Docker provides the docker exec command to run programs in containers that are already running.

docker container exec -it [CONTAINER_ID] OR [CONTAINER_NAME] /bin/sh


$ docker container exec -t df148cbe0b29 sh
