Hello @msslgomez,

Do you need to use the variables from your .env file as environment variables on your Linux server?

If so you could do this by sourcing the .env file with the following commands:

set -a
source .env
set +a

Then after that when you run printenv you will be able to see your variables.

Hope that this helps. Regards, Bobby
