and check container status with docker ps

All envoirment values except yubikey and the other api thing with is paid are setup in the golbal env override file

Same here, I just installed Bitwarden on a new server, looking to migrate from my old server which is still running.
I have the identity and admin containers restarting, but also the events and sso containers showing ‘unhealthy’ status (but running).

I have been running another instance on another server for years without any such issues. I (think I) have troubleshooted as much as I can - checked permissions, config.yml, global.override.env, and docker-compose.yml, as far as I can tell nothing bad there.

Container logs for identity and admin containers show this:

crit: Microsoft.AspNetCore.Hosting.Diagnostics[6]

Application startup exception

System.ArgumentException: Format of the initialization string does not conform to specification starting at index 194.

at System.Data.Common.DbConnectionOptions.GetKeyValuePair(String connectionString, Int32 currentPosition, StringBuilder buffer, Boolean useOdbcRules, String& keyname, String& keyvalue)

Along, of course, with many more debug lines.

Is this a bug of the latest version, or is there something else going on?

I fixed it as described in the post below:
