Bitwarden self hosted behind F5 Big IP Proxy

Hi all,

I am trying to install the self hosted version of Bitwarden but are having some issues and are wondering if someone has tried something similar and might have some pointers.

We have a F5/BigIP that will act as the reverse proxy but it seems like something with our configuration is not quite correct. I have managed to install and create an account but when I try to send the confirmation email I get the error below in the nginx log:

“2023/02/11 19:48:40 [error] 45#45: *68 upstream timed out (110: Connection timed out) while reading response header from upstream, client: x.x.x.x, server: URL, request: “POST /api/accounts/verify-email HTTP/1.1”, upstream: “”, host: “URL”, referrer: “URL””

Any pointers would be awesome.
