To get started, first edit the .env file directly on your server, and make the chnages per below. Its always a good idea to back up your .env file.

cd /var/www/html/rconfig7/current && vim .env

# VAULT_SERVICE_NAME must match exactly
# VAULT_HASHICORP_ADDR Must match your vault address with either http:// or https://
# VAULT_HASHICORP_TOKEN Must match your vault token
rConfig Server Cli
