Bitwarden

Docker Pulls GitHub Stars Compose Templates

Description

Bitwarden is a free and open-source password management service that stores sensitive information such as website credentials in an encrypted vault. This is a Bitwarden server API implementation written in Rust compatible with upstream Bitwarden clients, perfect for self-hosted deployment where running the official resource-heavy service might not be ideal.

Install/Setup

When installing the Bitwarden container, the installer will install under appdata directory as the root user, however once it is installed you can change the owner/group of it to whatever is required

Run the below command from a terminal to change the permissions if required:

sudo chown -R $USER:$USER ~/.config/appdata/bitwarden

Restart your container by running:

docker restart bitwarden

Having the owner group change will allow you to edit the files if required without running into permission issues.
