Access running docker container filesystem
I am developing a WordPress theme and set up the development environment using docker. My docker-compose.yml volume property looks like this;
volumes: - ~/WordPress/wp-content:/var/www/html/wp-content
it mounts just the wp-content directory to the local machine. I now have to edit wp-config file which is in /var/www/html/ the docker image container. Can anyone here show me how to access and edit the wp-config file in the running docker container?

You can run a shell terminal in the running container.
Get the container ID
Run the terminal
docker exec -it container_ID "/bin/bash"
But, whatever change you do, it will not be persisted. You have to map this volume also.
volumes: - ~/WordPress/wp-content:/var/www/html
