Command not found [SSH action]


Command not found


If you’re sure the execution command is correct, check the {.bashrc} file on the server. The file allows you to ignore commands executed in non-interactive mode. Make sure to remove or comment the config for non-interactive executions. It is usually preceeded with a line like this:

# If not running interactively, don't do anything

The config may look different depending on the system, for example:

# If not running interactively, don't do anything

case $- in

    *i*) ;;
      *) return;;


# If not running interactively, don't do anything
[ -z "$PS1" ] && return

Host key verification failed


Host key verification failed.


Run the following line before the command:

ssh-keyscan <host> >> /root/.ssh/known_hosts

Base64: not found

If you want to run commands as a script, you need to install base64 on your server. Otherwise, please uncheck the option ‘Run as a script’.

Branches not getting synchronized in Buddy

If new commits to your external repository are not appearing in Buddy anymore, you can try to refresh the project. This will refresh all webhooks in the repository and fetch the current repository version, provided you still have permissions to do so.

  1. Go to the Code tab of the project
  2. Click Refresh in the right column
