Help installing bitwardenrs docker on Plesk

I am hitting a problem setting up bitwardenrs in a docker in my Plesk account. I have downloaded the latest bitwardenrs/server dicker image and hit the same issue when trying to install it using wither the Plesk GUI interface or from the command line.

The command line I am using is:

docker run -d --name bitwardenrs -v /bwdata:/data -p 49208:80 -p 49209:3012 bitwardenrs/server:latest

The bwdata directory gets populated with an icon_cache directory, plus the SQLite db file 2 .der and one .pem file, but the install seems to hang when I check the console. I’ve pasted the output below. Am I missing anything from the docker config?

Same problem here…

Mine eventually started working when I added an extra parameter to define the location of a log file (which I did to try and work out why it was stalling!)

Where? Container configuration?

Yes, container config. I added an environment variable called “LOG_FILE” with a value of “/bwdata/bitwarden_rs.log”

I also added a Docker Proxy Rule to the subdomain I created to access the BitWarden admin portal targeted at the port mapped to port 80 in the Docker config.

It works! Thank you very much for your help.
